Friends fan finds 'literal plot hole' when watching show on widescreen TV
Top 20 Friends Mistakes That Were Kept in the Show

A woman said she found "a literal plot hole" in Friends thanks to her widescreen TV.

Posting on TikTok, a user called Riley hit pause on an episode of the popular show in which you can see Joey returning home to his apartment, and pointed out a huge hole in the wall of the set.

"I love when you can tell something was shot with a camera that had no intention of ever being put on a widescreen TV," Riley said.

"I'm watching Friends, and look at this," she said, pointing to the right of Joey's door.

"Look at that giant hole in the side of Joey and Chandler's apartment!"
