No, 'Friends' Co-Creator Hasn't Seen JAY-Z's '4:44' Spoof

13 Août, 2017, 18:07 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

JAY- Z debuted a music video for "Moonlight" - the latest track from his revelatory 4:44 album - on August 4 at 4:44 p.m. ET, and it featured a starry cast of talent in very familiar settings. A brief arc involving a character played by Aisha Tyler aside, Friends was a white show about white characters, and while at first blush you may look at the video for "Moonlight" and think, "I love all these actors and they're all doing a show I love!", this video, directed by Master of None co-creator Alan Yang, turns into a sharp critique of how white entertainment becomes set as the "default" rather than recognizing the outstanding work of black performers.

Featuring Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show) as Ross, Issa Rae (Insecure) as Rachel, Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) as Phoebe, LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta) as Chandler, Lil Rey Howery (Get Out) as Joey and Tessa Thompson (Creed) as Monica, the clip imagines a show that ain't so different at all.
