I am a big Friends fan and I've watched it many times. Recently I kept noticing that Friends has a lot of product placement embedded into the show. For example:

  • Be Your Own Windkeeper Book
  • Porsche Cars
  • Pottery Barn
  • Macy's
  • Bloomingdales
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Gucci
  • Waxeen

I am not sure if Friends producers were paid to promote these brands or it was just for the purpose of the show.

There are few things that I thought it were advertising but were not, Gandalf the party guy for instance, I thought they were promoting for a party business but apparently it is just a fictional name.

Can anyone list the brands that appear in Friends?

    It is common for TV shows to contain product placement, but I don't think, that there is a complete list of all products, which have been placed in Friends.

  • List questions are not encouraged here...especially as this one is trivia at best.

  • "Be Your Own Windkeeper" isn't a real book.

There is a website that lists with pictures everytime a branded product is seen in friends, check it out Here. I have no affiliation with this site. I would list them all out here but there are more than 90 which seems gratuitous for an answer.

  • The lists totally lacks beer brands which can be seen on the fridge in Joey&Chandler's apparment.

  • many thanks, it has many of the brands, yet there are still many other brands they talked about without having an image for
