Artist Retitles Classic Novels Like Friends Episodes And It's Perfect
Friends is a classic in its own right, up there with Wuthering Heights, The Bell Jar and Great Expectations.
You've got tales of enduring love overcoming hardship (Ross, you weren't on a break, you fucking arsehole), you've got weird minor characters breaking through to get the spotlight they deserve (Mike Hannigan 4eva), and you've got beloved sidekicks providing light relief from the dark themes explored in the main plot (helloooooo Gunther). You've also got Ross, but let's not talk about that.
Jason Adam Katzenstein recognised this fact and decided to take things a step further, by retitling famous novels in the style of Friends episodes.
From Wuthering Heights as 'The One With The Bad Marriage' (no, not Rachel and Barry) to Mrs. Dalloway as 'The One Where She Doesn’t Need Help Getting the Flowers', they just get better and better. Check out the full list below:
“My Brilliant Friend”: “The One Everyone Is Reading on the Subway”
“Emma”: “The One That ‘Clueless’ Is Based On”
“Anna Karenina”: “The One with the Train”
“Wuthering Heights”: “The One with the Bad Marriage”
“The Stranger”: “The One Where They Go to the Beach”
“Infinite Jest”: “The Really Long One”
“All the King’s Men”: “The One with Politics”
“A Wrinkle in Time”: “The One That Gives Children Nightmares”
“The Metamorphosis”: “The One That’s Gross”
“Mrs. Dalloway”: “The One Where She Doesn’t Need Help Getting the Flowers”
“The Bell Jar”: “The One with the Bad Internship”
“Little Women”: “The One That Inspired the ‘Friends’ Episode Where Joey Reads ‘Little Women’ ”
“East of Eden”: “The One Where They Can’t Stop Arguing”
“Invisible Man”: “The One That Isn’t About Superpowers”
“The Great Gatsby”: “The One with the American Dream”
“Animal Farm”: “The One That’s Not Actually About Animals”
“The Catcher in the Rye”: “The One with the Phonies”
“To Kill a Mockingbird”: “The One with the Nice Lawyer Who We Later Find Out Was Racist”
“A Tale of Two Cities”: “The One with the Best of Times and the Worst of Times”
“Portnoy’s Complaint”: “The One with All the Masturbating”
