Courteney Cox hilariously recreates Monica’s turkey head dance from Friends

Even if you’ve never seen Friends, you’ve probably seen a photo or video from the iconic season five episode ‘The One With All The Thanksgivings’.

In the episode, Monica – played by Courteney Cox – puts a raw turkey on her head and dances in an attempt to make up with her boyfriend Chandler. GIFs and images from the scene flood social media every Thanksgiving.

It’s now been 22 years since it aired on TV, but Cox decided it was high time to recreate the scene.

“Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you’re having a great day. I’m feeling so thankful,” she began in a video posted to Instagram. “And also, if I get one more goddamn GIF of that turkey on my head dancing like a f—ing fool — I’m just going to snap!”

“So anyway, since I’m the symbol of Thanksgiving, here you go — hope it makes you happy,” she added, before cutting to a clip of her dancing in her kitchen, turkey on head, sunglasses and all.

The original cast of Friends are getting together for an upcoming special reunion episode. It was set to air earlier this year but has been delayed to March 2021 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The exciting thing is that we’re all going to get together for the first time, in a room, and actually talk about the show,” Cox previously said about the reunion.

“We’re going to have the best time…It’s going to be great. We really haven’t all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had,” she added.
