What is arguably the second-most-famous couch on TV (the first is obviously from The Simpsons, but that one’s a cartoon and can’t leave a two-dimensional plane) is coming to Australia.
That’s right, the plush orange couch from Friends will be touring the country from August 29 to September 22 to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary, courtesy of streaming service Stan. And you’ll be able to plonk your bum on it for a piccy.
You'll recognise is as the couch from Central Perk, where Phoebe taught Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders how to play Smelly Cat, which Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe are all inexplicably hanging out on in front of that fountain in the show’s opening credits. That one.
The couch will pop up at Melbourne Central (VIC), Robina Town Centre (QLD), Westfield Tuggerah (NSW), Westfield Chatswood (NSW), Burnside Village (SA), Westfield Southland (VIC) and Broadway Shopping Centre (NSW). Post your photo on social media and tag @stanaustralia and #FriendsOnStan and you could win Friends merchandise, a signed cast photo or a trip to New York City.
