Despite Friends being on our screens for over a decade, totting up an incredible 236 episodes and basically being unavoidable on daytime TV, we all somehow managed to miss one weird moment.
In everyone’s defence though it wasn’t one of the stars like Chandler, Ross or Rachel, instead it was a background extra who somehow managed to steal a scene without even saying a line, Mashable reports.

The extra, who was spotted by comedian Nick Turner, appears to be chewing on something, which would be fine if her character was eating and not clearly drinking coffee.
We can only guess that the milk Gunther used was out of date and maybe a bit chunky?
Thankfully people on Twitter put together their collective noggins and brainstormed some theories to explain the chomping.
One thought maybe the extra was simply washing something down…
she is washing down a donut/cookie/muffin/bagel

A valid theory although there doesn’t seem to be any food or plates on the table so unless she hid the pastry in her mouth then we doubt this is the case.
Others had a better theory…
this is the first good theory.

Or of course it could have just been a tired and underpaid extra who wasn’t really thinking about the scene and messed up.
It wouldn’t be the first time a Friends actor dropped the ball, remember the one where when Matt LeBlanc fell to pieces after a Matthew Perry gag?
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
