Google is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Friends by leaving Easter eggs into their search results. This Thursday, the company rolled out a feature that showed a special icon. Clicking on the icon continuously four times pops up an animation connected to each of the characters in the sitcom.
An icon of a couch pulls up on searching Ross Geller. Clicking on that four times triggers a soundbite of Ross yelling “Pivot!” If we click on it again and again, the couch splits into two and we hear Ross say, “OK, I don’t think it’s gonna pivot anymore.”
On searching for Jennifer Aniston‘s character “Rachel Green,” we notice an illustration of the iconic haircut which was made famous back during the ’90s. If we click on the image, it takes us to the Google image search for Rachel.
If we search “Joey Tribbiani” for Matt LeBlanc‘s character, we see a slice of pizza next to the character’s name. Clicking on that four times, we see different food items on the screen. Then we hear Joey shout, “Joey doesn’t share food!” and his arms sweep all that food off the screen.
A search for “Phoebe Buffay”, the character played by Lisa Kudrow; shows an image of a guitar. Clicking on that, an animation of a black cat pops up on the screen, and we hear Phoebe singing “Smelly Cat.”
If we type in “Chandler Bing” for Matthew Perry‘s character, we see his iconic ‘barcalounger’ next to his name. Click on that to recline the chair and the chick and the duck appear, quacking and squeaking and walking around on the bottom of the screen.
Last of the characters but certainly not the least, searching for Courteney Cox‘s character “Monica Geller” and shows a bucket of soapy water. If we want to see her name get extra clean, like she needs everything clean, click on that bucket. It will end up sparkling!
If we want to brush up on our Friends vocabulary, a search for “Friends glossary” shows up words or phrases used in the dialogues in the show, such as “transponster,” “Joey’s apple” and “Holiday Armadillo.”
