‘Friends’ Cast Sings the Theme Song in New Video

For those looking to drown in a little nostalgia these days, the Friends reunion is the gift that keeps on giving.

Less than a month after hosting Friends: The Reunion on HBO Max, James Corden released a nearly 12-minute clip on this week’s episode of The Late Late Show featuring some behind-the-scenes footage of his time on set with the core six cast members — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc. The highlight? When Corden picked up the cast in a golf cart at the Warner Bros. studio lot and led them in a rousing rendition of the show’s iconic theme song, “I’ll Be There for You” by The Rembrandts.

“What about that for a trip down memory lane?” Corden asked after the song. “I’ve always wanted to do Carpool Karaoke!” Cox said.

Later in the clip, the cast sat down together on the set of the Central Perk coffee shop and reminisced about their time on the show. “Personally, I didn’t anticipate how much being on set was going to hit me. We spent a lot of time in these sets, had a lot a laughs. Some of it made it on the camera but, the funniest stuff that like happened between us, that never made it to TV, those are like the memories we keep talking about,” LeBlanc said. “These five people right here mean the world to me.”

Corden even got the cast involved in a game called “The Best Friends Test” which revealed that Aniston stole the most pieces of wardrobe from set, Kudrow broke out of character the most and that Schwimmer is the best dancer in the group (of course he is — who hasn’t seen “The Routine?”).
