‘Friends’ Cast Has Mini-Reunion in Uber Eats Super Bowl Ad


With the Super Bowl rapidly approaching, brands are pulling out all the stops when it comes to the commercials that will air during the big game. And this year, Uber Eats lined up some pretty big names for its own spot, recruiting Friends cast members Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, in addition to David and Victoria Beckham, Usher, and Jelly Roll.

In the spot, called “Worth Remembering,” a production assistant approaches Aniston on a film set with a shopping bag and tells the 54-year-old that she didn’t know you could get so many things from Uber Eats. “Well you know what they say,” Aniston responds. “In order to remember something, you’ve got to forget something else. Make a little room!”

The ad then cuts to the Beckhams, who struggle with remembering the name of Victoria’s ’90s girl power pop band. “Remember when you used to be a pepper lady?” David tells his wife, who responds: “Wasn’t it the cinnamon sisters?” The couple also rule out “basil babes” and “paprika girls,” failing to recall the name of the Spice Girls.

The commercial then cuts to Schwimmer strolling up to Aniston, who can’t seem to recognize her former co-star. “Have we met?” she asks a confused Schwimmer. “We worked together for 10 years,” he deadpans, when she later asks him to give her a hint. “You still don’t know,” he asks, to which she admits that she doesn’t. “Like I’d forget 10 years of my life,” she says under her breath walking away.

“I hate this town,” Schwimmer deadpans.

The commercial is notable in that this marks Aniston and Schwimmer’s first appearances together since the death of Matthew Perry back in October 2023. “We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew,” the cast wrote in an initial joint statement. “We were more than just castmates. We are a family.”

“There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss,” the statement added. “In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.”
