You'd be hard-pressed to find a fan base more dedicated and knowledgeable than Friends fanatics. If the fan wikis online are any indication, it's safe to say Friends fans know almost everything. However, pop culture savant Brian Pocrass of 22 Vision dug up some information that even those most observant film junkies would have missed.
As it turns out, there's a crazy overlap between Friends and the beloved classic Home Alone.
Turns out, Chandler and Monica shared something in common with the McCallister family.
Mind blown? Us too.
This theory claims that when Monica and Chandler were searching for a house in the suburbs of New York City in Season 10 of Friends (aka 2004), the home they settled on was the McCallisters from 1990's Home Alone.
Across the street from Monica and Chandler's new pad, you can see not one but two neighbor homes that appeared in Home Alone, making the couple's house the McCallister residence.
Now, this overlap doesn't actually make sense in TV land, as Monica and Chandler purchased a home in Westchester, New York, while the McCallister family lived in a suburb of Chicago. And at the end of the video, it's stated that Friends used stock footage from the beloved movie and probably didn't expect anyone to notice. (Hey, don't count out eagle-eyed fans!)
So, we'll just have to imagine a world in which this is still consistent because we like the idea of the Bings purchasing a home from the McCallisters. We'd definitely love to see how Chandler would handle Harry and Marv!
The Home Alone house isn't just a set — but, sadly, you won't be able to live there anytime soon to continue the legacy.
The Winnetka, Illinois house sold for $1.58 million back in 2012.
