Watch: Courteney Cox recreates famous Friends scene

Friends star Courteney Cox gave fans of the classic 90s sitcom a Thanksgiving treat as she recreated one of the show’s most iconic moments to mark the holiday.

The 56-year-old took to social media to wish fans a happy Thanksgiving and post a video of herself “dancing like a fool”.

The clip sees the actor recreate a scene from the episode The One With All the Thanksgivings from season five of the popular sitcom.

The now iconic scene sees Monica apologising to boyfriend Chandler by putting a huge uncooked turkey on her head and performing a dance in a bid to make him laugh.

The scene has been immortalised as a GIF in the internet age and Cox has, evidently, been forced to come to terms with the fact as fans keep sending the clip to her.

She addressed this in a post uploaded for her 10.2 million Instagram followers.

Cox said: “Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you're having a great day. I'm feeling so thankful.

“And also, if I get one more god damn GIF with that turkey on my head dancing like a f***ing fool, I'm just gonna snap!”

Cox’s Friends costar Lisa Kudrow was one of the people to respond, writing “You DID THAT!!”.

Reese Witherspoon also responded, saying: “Love you sister!”

Friends ran for ten seasons and made household names of Cox, Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry before it ended in 2004.

A live reunion expected in 2020 has been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
