At the Central Perk pop-up shop in New York City on Tuesday, Danny Wilde (left) and Phil Solem (right) — aka The Rembrandts — gathered for a special Friends performance in honor of the 20th anniversary of the show's premiere.

Two decades after co-writing the show's legendary theme song, "I'll Be There For You," they were introduced to the crowd by none other than James Michael Tyler, who played Central Perk manager Gunther.
