Friends Blooper From 'Pivot' Scene Is Even More Iconic Than The Real Thing

Any true Friends fan will know that one of the most hilarious moments of the whole series is indisputably the 'pivot' scene.

You know, that moment in season 5 episode, "The One with the Cop", where Ross Geller can be seen screaming 'PIVOT' at Rachel Green and Chandler Bing again and again, as they attempt to move a much-too-large and much-too-heavy sofa up a very small New York flight of stairs, and into his new apartment?

The scene has been hailed iconic by fans the world over, and the vast majority of us have undoubtedly yelled the same Ross Geller catchphrase in tribute, when moving into a new apartment.

But it turns out it wasn't just us crying with laughter whilst watching, as an unearthed clip has revealed the actors were in stitches while filming, too.

In a resurfaced clip, which is now on YouTube, we can see Ross actor David Schwimmer reminiscing about the hilarious day on set.

"I think it's the hardest I've laughed in my life. Period," he says.

What follows next is a clip of the 'pivot' scene, which shows David asking to pause mid-filming as he bursts out laughing.

It comes after Matthew Perry's character Chandler retorts: "Shut up, shut up, shut up!" at Ross' rather repetitive instructions.

Before long, all three of the cast members, David, Matthew and Jennifer Anniston are laughing their heads off.

Through laughter, David carries on yelling 'pivot' at the top of his voice, while Jen and Matthew's cackling gets louder and louder.

Giggling can also be heard from the studio as the group attempt to continue.

But eventually David has to signal to the director to cut the scene early, as he can barely breathe from all the hilarity.

He's left literally panting at the end of the clip.

We think we might enjoy this blooper more than the actual 'pivot' scene, you know...
