Friends ran for 10 happy years and American TV show Friends became hugely popular and provided happiness for millions of people, but perhaps no one fell in love with Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe as much as the Chinese man who decided to live his life eternally as if he were stuck in an episode of Friends.
After facing a big breakup with his first love, the man who now goes by Gunther was told that he should watch the TV show to help him get over it. Well, it didn’t just help him overcome that one hardship in life; it became his life. After quitting the job he hated, he opened his very own replica of the Central Perk in Beijing, complete with staff named after the characters and even a real-life Smelly Cat. Learn more about Gunther’s sweet obsession below (video).
This story is incredible and I am sure this is not the only story out there, Friends touched so many lives even mine. People even now after 10 years watch episodes of Friends to get out of stress and have a moment of peace and happiness. Friends is the only show which I watched thousands of times when I am sad or down and I am not exaggerating.
