This Cannot Fail to Make You Laugh

A Model Recommends

I want to share with you a little link to a video that NEVER fails to make me laugh. In my darkest moments I have searched for this on Youtube and it has completely and utterly cheered me up. Many of you will have seen it before and I expect that for a few of you, it will be on your own favourite “moments” list.

It is the Friends episode where Ross gets a spray tan. If you don’t know the episode I mean (but you know what Friends is, surely? Unless you have been living in a disused power station in Siberia?) then you are in for a treat. I won’t give too much away, but I’ll warn you not to watch this on public transport. If you’re anything like me, you’ll laugh out loud uncontrollably and then do a weird pig-snort.

I swear, if you ever go for a spray tan after watching this, you’ll have to bite your tongue not to shout “I’M AN EIGHT?” at the technician.

    “Weird pig snort” is right! I didn’t know proper British models occasionally had those too?!?
    The things you learn on AMR! Priceless. xx

    OMG I love you for posting this Ruth!!! I have never found another person that found that particular episode as funny as I did–I remember the first time I saw it, I almost died laughing. Tears were streaming down my face, I was unsexily guffawing, the whole nine yards. I had never laughed so hard at a show before :P

    When I had my first ever spray tan I was told to turn round when the beep happened. As you can guess a noise came but I wasn’t sure if it was THE beep……I had two sprays to just my front!!!!! I had to go back in the booth and had two on he back!!!!
    Ps my j-crew jumper from the net a porter sale game. Good recommendation. Hope you will be showing it in a vid when it’s jumper time xxx

    OOOh! This is one of my favorite “Ross moment” along with the teeth whitening incident, the bagpipe (the bloopers when Phoebe tries to imitate the sound) and the rap song with Rachel. This show was and will always be brilliant.

    When I watched friends first time, real time, Chandler was my favorite. But the re shows, it’s Ross hand down.

    Another brilliant one is the leather trousers.

    Baby lotion, talc and black leather pants, there is no getting out of that one.

    I love Friends. One moment where I died laughing was when they were trying to get a couch up a flight of stairs and they could barely fit. Every time they would come to a turn in the stairs Ross would yell “Pivot!!!” God it was soooo funny!! I’m getting out my Friends DVDs tonight :D

    Thank you for posting this Ruth! one of my favourite episodes of Friends ever – although ‘The One Where Ross is Fine’ has to be number one!

  17. August 13, 2012 / 5:06 pm

    Thank u, thank u, thank u! I was struggling with a killer deadline and the most horrid writers block. Then I saw this clip and my brain miraculously opened up! Now the only problem is how do I restrain myself from sitting down to watch the entire series on auto loop and actually get some work done!!!!!

    No kidding, I thought about that scene today. We were putting suntan lotion on and I thought of Ross and the spray tan machine. How it would be great if they made those for SPF lotions. :) Not to miss a spot, well, sort of.
