Jay-Z's "Moonlight" Video Remakes Friends With All Black Actors

05 Août 2017

Still, even he admitted he "dumbed down" his content to easily appeal to the masses, but now at 47, Jay is doing no such thing and every aspect of content from his new album 4:44 has been poignant and complex.

Numerous video's stars take part in a fun recreation of the famous "Friends" intro. It's a reimagining of the iconic television sitcom "Friends", made entirely with black actors.

Jay-Z released "4:44" exclusively through the TIDAL streaming service on June 30.

Joey, Chandler, and Ross are played by Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta), and Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show) respectively. The "Friends" remake becomes self-referential around the middle, as the fourth wall breaks down and Hannibal Buress inexplicably appears as himself.

The group is back on a set that looks identical to the famous set from the comedy series, and the cast recreates the intro replacing the classic "I'll Be There For You" by The Rembrandts with "Friends" by Whodini.

But instead of playing like an ordinary episode of "Friends", the visual takes on a new dynamic when Rae leads a anxious Carmichael out of the studio and into a majestic park, where he can reflect on the moonlight.

The video eventually switches to Carmichael gazing up at the sky, seemingly pondering the project, as audio from the infamously bungled Best Picture announcement at the 2017 Oscars plays.
