The Fountain In 'Friends' Is The Same One As In 'Hocus Pocus'


It doesn’t happen very often that the internet LOSES its mind… okay, let’s be serious, it happens all the time. But, in light of it being Fall and so close to Halloween, you’re likely bingeing every Halloween movie and horror film alike in anticipation for the holiday that everyone loves oh so very much. If you’re a true Halloween connoisseur, you’ve likely seen the movie ‘Hocus Pocus’ too many times to even begin to count, and I can almost promise you that you’re going to be very disappointed in yourself when you realize what’s been in front of your eyes the whole time, ESPECIALLY if you’re a friends connoisseur as well.

You may be asking yourself “what the heck does ‘Friends’ have to do with Halloween? Well, unless you’re referring to the episode where Joey puts on every outfit Chandler owns and asks “could I BE wearing any more clothes?!” then you’re right – there’s not much going on in that TV series that has anything to do with the impending holiday… except one aspect that you may never have come to realize.

The notorious fountain in the opening scene of ‘Friends’ is the same fountain as the one in the movie ‘Hocus Pocus’ and for some reason, after all these years, the internet detectives of the world have FINALLY come to realize the similarity. So, if you’ve ever felt an overwhelming sense of deja-vu while watching the opening credits for friends that didn’t evolve during the 19 episodes you watched directly before it, this is probably why.

Or… maybe you realized this YEARS ago, and didn’t feel the need to plaster it all over the internet. If that’s the case, good for you and congratulations on being the original discoverer. Now the secret is out… and you have some TV to watch if you have no idea what I’m talking about. Happy Halloween-ish!
