Friends and Home Alone don’t have much in common. One is a late nineties/early noughties sitcom about a group of friends in New York, the other follows a youngster left by himself to wreak havoc on a pair of would-be burglars.
But it turns out they share one very crucial similarity…
Remember in the final series of Friends when Monica and Chandler move out of their (frankly awesome, rent-controlled) Manhattan apartment to a spacious home out in the ‘burbs? You know, this one:
And remember in Home Alone how Kevin’s house is absolutely gigantic leaving us all wandering what exactly Peter McCallister does for a living and how we can do it too?
Well, it turns out they’re the same house. Bear with us a second…
Pay close attention to the episode of Friends where Monica and Chandler show Joey their new pad and you’ll see a view out of the living room window to the house across the street. It’s blue and has a wreath across the door. Oh, and it’s identical to the one opposite the McCallister digs in Home Alone.
Friends used some stock footage and got away with it… until now.
