Jay-Z is taking us back to the 1990s when all of your closest TV buddies were there for you. In his new video for “Mastermind,” a Friends episode (and its opening theme song) is reimagined with an all-black cast that includes Insecure’s Issa Rae as Rachel and Jerrod Carmichael as Ross.
You need to be a Tidal subscriber to see the entire video, which plays off the 1996 Friends episode titled “The One Where No One is Ready.” But director Alan Yang, the executive producer of Master of None, shared a snippet on his Twitter account.
I directed a music video for Jay-Z. It's called Moonlight. Available on Tidal now and everywhere in a week. pic.twitter.com/UkLfo7g2f2— Alan Yang (@AlanMYang) August 4, 2017
Or you can watch more the video on Tidal.
In addition to Carmichael and Rae, Tiffany Haddish plays Phoebe, Tessa Thompson plays Monica, Lakeith Stanfield plays Chandler, and Lil Rel Howery plays Joey.
