JAY-Z 'Moonlight' by Alan Yang
Alan Yang, co-dreator of Master Of None, has said that his video for JAY-Z's Moonlight is "not a slam on Friends... it's more of a glimpse at how far we have come as a culture. And how far we have yet to go."
Yang has said: "I don’t want to be didactic and tell people what to think of the video, but one thing that Jay and I talked about is the importance of making your own stuff. I know that sounds trivial, but it really is just owning and making your own stuff. And that applies to movies, music, TV shows, art, whatever it is you’re making. It’s important to be the author of your own material."
Yang recreated part of the Friends episode 'The One Where No-One's Ready' with a cast of young black actors, all of whom are currently or have recently starred in hit TV shows or movies: Jerrod Carmichael, Issa Rae, Lakeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Tessa Thompson, and Lil Rel Howery. The original idea was to reshoot the whole of the 21 minute episode, and Production designer JC Molina did a brilliant job replicating the set.
Yang has told Vulture: "JC got the original plans from the original set and just literally reproduced it brick by brick, piece of furniture by piece of furniture. Every prop was the same. And I watched that episode so many times, some of those lines are etched in my head — I was telling Lil Rel, I’m never gonna forget the line “glass of fat” — and we had a split-screen monitor of the episode on set. So I made sure every shot was exactly the same as the original."
