Burger King Reunited The Cast Of ‘Jersey Shore’ For A Family Dinner

It’s been more than five years since the final episode of MTV’s Jersey Shore aired. The series followed a group of 20-something Italian-Americans partying their way through New Jersey learning about love and cooking Italian food every night.

To promote the return of their Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, Burger King brought the gang back together (minus Ronnie) for a long-overdue reunion. Instead of a shoreside party house, however, the gang met up at a Burger King to enjoy a bountiful spread of Chicken Parms.

Pauly, Snooki, The Situation, JWoww, Deena, Sammi, and Vinny all updated each other and viewers on their lives five years later — all while enjoying camera-friendly variations of the chicken sandwich.

Even though it was for a Burger King commercial, we’re still pretty stoked to see the gang back together. Jersey Shore, as we can now shamelessly admit nearly half a decade later, has always been a guilty pleasure of ours.

In case that Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel left you feeling a little ho-hum, you may soon get a chance to bum around at 11 am on a workday on the actual big orange couch from the show, thanks to the upcoming Central Perk pop-up in New York City.

In honor of the upcoming Friends 20th anniversary, Warner Bros. has partnered with Eight O’Clock Coffee to bring an actual pop-up replica of Central Perk to Manhattan. The shop will come complete with themed decor, bizarre folk musical performances a la Smelly Cat, and, as we mentioned, chances to take #SofaSelfies on the same plush orange couch the “Friends” sat on.

Speaking of, Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe have not been scheduled to make appearances, but there will be free “Central Perk Roast” coffee on hand and chances to win Friends merchandise, which is kind of or in other words nowhere near as nice.

Central Perk will run from September 17 through October 18, Monday – Friday from 8 am to 8 pm and weekends from 10 am to 8 pm.
