Chinese guy recreated his life to live out his 'Friends' dream

There's obsessed and then there's Chinese Gunther.
Chinese Friends

Broken-hearted after a breakup, a Chinese man named Gunther (yep, that's right) did what a lot of people do: curled up at home and binge-watched "Friends." He'd never seen the show before and in China where TV shows are controlled by the government, it was unlike anything he'd ever seen. To him, it was life-changing.

Gunther decided to quit his job and open up his own Central Perk. He even decorated his apartment to look just like Joey and Chander's place. Now, he's married and the father of a cute little kid named...Joey.
