Watch Jay-Z's Full 'Moonlight' Short Film

Earlier in August, Jay Z unveiled a remake of hit sitcom Friends for his Moonlight music video which features an all-black cast and now Friends creator David Crane has revealed exactly what he makes of it. Somehow, seven minutes is enough for Master of None director Alan Yang to imagine Friends with an entirely African American cast, before utterly subverting the concept.

Of course, there's a far-deeper message about race relations, cultural appropriation and intellectual property not-too-buried among the music and laughs. The short ends with a nod to the feature-length "Moonlight" and the now-infamous Academy Awards' snafu that initially named "La La Land" last year's Best Picture.

It stars Jerrod Carmichael as Ross, Issa Rae as Rachel, Tessa Thompson as Monica, Tiffany Haddish as Phoebe, LaKeith Stanfield as Chandler, and Lil Rey Howery as Joey.

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. The video has now been released to YouTube, and you should definitely take six minutes out of your day to watch it.
