Jay-Z Recreates ‘Friends’, Enlists Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Jerrod Carmichal For ‘Moonlight’

Jay-Z has used the classic sitcom Friends as inspiration for his new video, “Moonlight.” Directed by Alan Yang, the modern day Friends featured an ensemble of A-list actors and comedians including Jerrod Carmichael who played Ross; Issa Rae who played Rachel, Lil Rel Howery who played Joey, Hannibal Burress who played himself, Tessa Thompson who played Monica and Tiffany Haddish who played Phoebe.

The video breaks the fourth wall courtesy of Hannibal and Jerrod and pays homage to the Oscar Best Picture fiasco at the 89th Academy Awards.

Check out the teaser below.
