I’m surprised I never noticed Jennifer Aniston’s major vocal habit on the classic show, and I’m annoyed that a TikTok user has made it, so I can’t get it out of my head. If you don’t need to know too much about Friends, keep scrolling. But before you do anything else, read this article. It will blow your mind.
Someone on TikTok asked people to put their videos together with “a media trope that you can’t unsee once you’ve seen it.” @cts.trphe came to help at that point. They explained that their example “isn’t technically a trope” but that it would “ruin” the viewer’s life.
They said, “Jennifer Aniston has this vocal tic that she does at the beginning of every sentence she says on any show.” “It’s obvious, and once you see it, it’s hard not to see it.”
After that, you see a montage of different scenes where Jennifer Aniston’s clears her throat. I knew right away that the sound was from someone who had seen Friends more than once. But I don’t think I’ve ever known how much money she makes.
The comments section for the video is a mess. One person said, “She does this all the time.” others are viewers who say they’ve seen it before on their own. “When acting, sighs, grunts, and other sounds like these are often used.”
Some people thought she might do it at the beginning of a joke to clarify her point. On the other hand, someone else said that they saw an episode where she didn’t do it even once. And it’s not quite as bad as the TikToker makes it seem. Now I have a new reason to watch Friends again.
