Fans of the legendary 90’s sitcom Friends were thrilled to learn the cast was uniting once more for a reunion special on HBO Max. The stars of the show recently had even more good news to share about the reunion: fans can enter a contest for a chance to attend the taping with five of their friends. Not only that, but the winners will have the chance to share coffee with the cast at the Central Perk as well as enjoy the Friends VIP experience on the Warner Bros. studio tour.
The One Where It’s For A Good Cause
The contest is for a good cause. The way for fans to enter is via AllInChallenge.com. Any donation counts as an entry, and the money goes to several good causes. Those include No Kid Hungry, Meals on Wheels, and America’s Food Fund. It’s a clever way for the cast of “Friends” to spread good cheer in a time where the world desperately needs it. However, the website Bustle noted they weren’t the only celebrities offering special opportunities for fans who donated.
Celebs like Matthew McConaughey, Madonna, Justin Timberlake and more offered contests on the All In Challenge website for fans to participate. Again, each entry for these contests are all donated to good charitable organizations that are providing beneficiary aid during the coronavirus crisis. Even Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro are offering fans a chance for a walk on role in an upcoming Martin Scorsese film.
The Impact of ‘Friends’
“Friends” is a television show that continues to make a cultural impact long after it went off the air in 2004. In an era where streaming services are more in demand than ever, HBO Max was wise to buy the rights to the legendary sitcom (even though it cost them 425 million dollars.) Citizens of the world are stuck at home in quarantine, while things remain uncertain as to what will be reopening and when. Even the ‘Friends’ reunion special has been delayed due to coronavirus fears.
However, for whoever wins the contest, the wait will more than likely be worthwhile.
