Jay-Z’s just released the latest video for his song, “Moonlight.” In it he and director Alan Young utilized the time to imagine the stars of Friends re-cast as all black actors and comedians. Jerrod Carmichael, Issa Young, Tiffany Hadish, and Lil’ Rel.
The comedians are also joined by Tessa Thomson and Lakeith Stanfieldall pull off a shot for shot re-creation of the episode, “The One Where No One’s Ready” at first. Then, things go awry and become closer to the Academy Award winning movie once Carmichael breaks the fourth wall, walks off set and has a run in with none other than Hannibal Buress.
