Jay-Z's buzzy "Moonlight" video has spread its wings beyond Tidal, the streaming service where it premiered one week ago.

The cast of "Friends" (extra quotation marks intended around that one) features Issa Rae ("Insecure") as Rachel, Tiffany Haddish ("Girls Trip") as Phoebe, Tessa Thompson ("Dear White People") as Monica, Lil Rel Howery ("Get Out") as Joey, Lakeith Stanfield ("Atlanta") as Chandler and Jerrod Carmichael ("The Carmichael Show") as Ross.

"Moonlight" was directed by "Master of None" co-creator Alan Yang, who said Jay-Z "felt like he wanted to cry" after reading Yang's concept for the video, which is more of a short film.

As previously reported, the video remakes the season 3 episode, "The One Where No One's Ready", and shows Carmichael asking Buress what he thinks of the updated version of the sitcom, which he claims is "something subversive" that could "turn culture on its head". "I'm just happy that the show is still part of the cultural zeitgeist after all these years".

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the showrunner admitted that while he was yet to watch the clip because he "doesn't have Tidal", he was glad the 90s classic inspired Hov's latest project.
