  • The Friends reunion special trailer has fans worried about Chandler Bing.
  • Matthew Perry appears to stare off into space and be laboring at times when he speaks.
  • More culture news here.

The first trailer for the eagerly anticipated Friends reunion show was released on Wednesday, but all many fans want to talk about is why Matthew Perry’s speech seems so labored and slurred in the video.

Fans also noticed that Perry, 51, appears to stare off into space during the promo for the special which will air May 27th on HBO Max.

As the group discusses what it was like to get the gang back together after all these years, Perry was asked if he took a souvenir from the set when the show ended in 2004.

“I stole the cookie jar that had the clock on it,” he said, with the word stole coming out sounding like “schtole.”

This and other moments in the trailer led to much speculation and concern among the Friends fanbase on social media.

Au contraire. Many people are talking about it.

In more positive news, Jennifer Aniston finally put to rest the one question every Friends fan has been asking for the better part of two decades: Were Ross and Rachel on a break? (Hint: her answer rhymes with guess.)

The Friends reunion special will also feature many of the series’ most famous guest stars including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Reese Witherspoon, and not Paul Rudd.
