As you may know, I'm probably one of the biggest "Friends" fans on the planet. I even had a "Friends" themed bachelorette party. So when I saw this yesterday, you can imagine my excitement.
According to Time:
To mark the 25th anniversary of the hit NBC comedy,NBC New York reports that the online retailer Frontier Communications, wants to pay a superfan $1,000 to do what they just might do anyway— sit on your couch and watch the adventures of Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey for one day and one hour. According to NBC’s calculations, that’s about 1/3 of the entire series. To prove they are truly watching the series, and not just recounting from memory, the company wants the winner to live-tweet throughout the 25 hours and post a selfie with their real life friends, perhaps with a turkey on their head like Monica once did.
In addition to the $1,000 reward, the superfan will also win a 12-month Netflix subscription. While the beloved series isleaving the streaming service in2020, there should be more than enough time to watch the entire series before it decamps to HBO Maxalong withThe Office.

I'm going to be honest though, I don't want you to sign up because I really want to win this. So if you could refrain from signing up, that'd be great...
