Well, it turns out Ms Green’s body double probably wasn’t the only thing wrong with the picture: The window behind her was causing some continuity problems too.

Eagle-eyed Friends fans over at Hello Giggles were watching old episodes of the series when they spotted something rather mysterious going on in the background.

Remember that window in Monica’s kitchen? Well, if you watch it very closely you’ll notice that things outside it change quite a bit throughout the series.

In the pilot episode, you could see a few buildings behind runaway bride Rachel.

Nah. It’s a good old continuity error. And it’s really rather amusing.
