I was strolling through my Facebook feed when one of my friend’s posted the trailer for the upcoming movie, Table 19. Usually I just flick past stuff like that, but I found myself watching it. And I got to say it looks hilarious, can’t wait to see it.
The movie stars Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow, June Squibb, Stephen Merchant, and other people I don’t know who are all invited to a wedding begrudgingly and who the hosts hoped would not show up. They’re seated at the worst table at the wedding, and they seem to form a gang and get a long. It’s an odd assortment of people, but the way they bond (in the trailer), looks great.
I woke up early this morning and for some reason had the urge to check Twitter. It was as if the gods were telling me something amazing had happened. And I saw that Taylor Swift had brought out Lisa Kudrow (as Phoebe Buffay) on her latest show of the 1989 World Tour to play “Smelly Cat.”
I don’t know how long this clip will last on Youtube (they’re bound to pull it down), but Taylor Swift introduces Kudrow as a “singer [who] has only performed in coffee houses before…this is Phoebe Buffay.” Phoebe finally made it!
They then proceeded to recreate this scene from Friends:
Now, I’m happy to report, “smelly cat” is a top trending topic on Twitter and Facebook. It’s crazy to think after like twenty years, people still remember Phoebe and her songs.

I found a clip of the whole performance:
