The team behind Friends Singing have brought together television's most endearing characters - Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey - and one of the festive season's most cheery songs - All I Want for Christmas is You, by Mariah Carey.

The slickly edited video takes its cues from numerous episodes across the 10 seasons of Friends, the last show of which aired on May 6, 2004. The mash-up combines the dialogues of the six actors to form the lyrics of the song, and also includes the voices of some of the other characters, including Janice, Gary the policeman and Malcolm the stalker (stocking instead of stalking, geddit?)

Our favourite bit? Chandler's emphatic "All I want", from the one where he's trapped in Rachel's boss Joanna's office. Check it out.

And here's the original track, which has more than 520 million views, and topped Billboard's Holiday 100 list for the week starting December 17 for the 33rd time since the song's release in 1994.
