Chernobyl is one of the best television dramas of all time. It’s phenomenal, with great writing, superb acting, and a gripping plot based on real events.
However, what if Chernobyl wasn’t a drama? What if it was a 1990s sitcom? This video lets us find out by setting Chernobyl to the Friends theme tune.
This works really well, with the main characters introduced in the same style of Friends. They’ve even timed the guy banging the table to coincide with the theme tune.
Is this a little insensitive given that people actually died at Chernobyl? Possibly, but I don’t think the intent was to mock the victims.
