Vimeo Giuls Sholfer has put together a mash-up of Gotham and Friends, with visuals from Gotham underpinning the theme song from Friends -- and it's kind of oddly perfect.
With a heavy emphasis on the kind of bizarre visuals that make the upbeat song feel oddly discordant, the video above focuses mostly on the show's dangerous villains, playing off the disconnect between the images and the tune. They still find a way to add in some sitcom-appropriate footage, though, and that's what loads up the back half of the video as the names of the actors come across the screen.
