In case you haven’t seen her June 30, 2021 video, Lisa gets Jennifer’s mannerisms and body language down to a tee, and fans everywhere went wild. Read on to see if Jen herself saw the video!

Lisa’s @she_plusthree TikTok account went viral after she channeled Rachel Green.

In the clip, Lisa lip-syncs a Rachel Green quote from the Friends Season 3 episode, “The One Where Chandler Can’t Remember Which Sister.” In the scene in question, the Jennifer Aniston character vents to Monica (Courteney Cox) about being told to serve coffee at her new Fortunata Fashions job.

“Oh, I want to quit,” Rachel says in that audio clip. “But then I think I should stick it out. Then, I think, why would such a person stay in such a demeaning job just because it’s remotely related to the field they are interested in.”

And for some TikTok users, it’s not until the laugh track at the very end of the audio clip that they realize that it’s not actually Jennifer in the TikTok video!

Commenters are blown away … and trying to get Jennifer to meet her lookalike.

Lisa's video has racked up millions of views and thousands of comments.

“I actually thought it was Jennifer Aniston!” one person commented. “Wow!”

Another wrote: “Wow, nailed the facial expressions and everything!”

A third user observed that Lisa looks “more like Rachel than Rachel does!”

For her part, Lisa chimed in after a commenter asked someone to “tag Jennifer Aniston and get them together.”

“I’m 100 percent down with that!” Lisa wrote back. “I feel like @ellendegeneres should make this happen.”

In her Instagram stories, Lisa — who often tags her Insta posts with hashtags like #momlife #momsofinstagram #fitmom #dtx and #dallastx — took a screenshot of all the press coverage about her TikTok video, including stories from E! News, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. “Is this real life?” she wrote.

And in the next stories update, she said, “What is happening?”

A few hours later, Lisa reflected on her viral fame… and told viewers that she doesn’t think she and the Morning Show actress look alike.

“So, the last two days have been pretty crazy,” she said. “I had a TikTok video that went viral because apparently, everyone thinks I look like Jennifer Aniston. It all kind of started as a joke and then kind of blew up. For the record, I don’t really feel I look like Jennifer Aniston and my family doesn’t either. But also, I’ve got all these followers on Instagram now, so welcome to the show.”

But Lisa only needs to read more of her TikTok comments to know how striking the resemblance is. “You really just thought we wouldn’t know you were Jennifer Aniston,” one commenter quipped.

Jennifer has actually responded to the entire ordeal, saying her doppelgänger "freaked me out."

Although TikTok isn't one of the social platforms that Jennifer has a presence on, that didn't stop friends of hers from sharing Lisa's videos impersonating the Friends star, who was freaked out by it all.

"A friend sent that to me — I watched it, and it freaked me out," she told InStyle during a recent interview. "She's not exactly like me, but of all the people who have said, 'I look just like you,' she was pretty close. Sometimes you say, 'Thanks?' And other times it's, 'Wow, thank you.'"

Despite being taken aback by Lisa's TikTok posts impersonating her, Jennifer made it clear that she is flattered whenever anyone pays homage to her and enjoys seeing it all. "When I see those things, I think it's funny," she said. "I'm an easy laugh. I like off-color humor and self-deprecation and humanity. Dumb things I do make me laugh."
