And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without talking of ‘FRIENDS’ and not mentioning its title song would be incomplete, hence one of the users said: “I’ll be there for you”. The post went viral and received a ton lot of comments, within just a few hours of it getting posted. Each comment hit a chord in the minds of the fans of the show.
