Could it be any bigger? Just when you think anything related to Friends cannot get any bigger, we are reminded about how wrong can we be! After all the talk about a potential reunion actually happening to the fact the 25th anniversary was celebrated with a pop-up event, there is another major development happening now.
More than 100 costumes, props, and replicas from the show are set to be auctioned online for the first time ever next month. The proceeds that will arrive from the auction will benefit The Trevor Project, suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for young LGBTQ people. According to a report in Variety, Some of the items to go on the block include a reproduction of the gang’s Central Perk couch, Ross’s armadillo costume, 10 copies of Monica’s peephole door frame, Joey’s stuffed penguin pal Hugsy, and Monica and Chandler’s wedding invitation set. Warner Bros. Television is teaming with online auction company Prop Store on the auction, which runs Dec. 3-17, 2019, at propstore.com/friends. Each of the auction items comes with a Warner Bros. Certificate of Authenticity.
