When the original Full House premiered in 1987, it became an instant classic. The material was family friendly, the characters both funny and relatable—we all grew up feeling like a Tanner until the show came to an end in 1995. While reruns would keep the shows spirit alive into the early 2000’s, in 2016, prayers were finally answered as the show announced it would be coming back as ‘Fuller House.’ Fans who grew up with Danny, DJ, Steph, Michelle, Comet and more would finally be reunited with their role-models.
Every episode is filled with life lessons and advice we’ve all learned to appreciate, but the most memorable part of the whole episode is the one we all sing along to: the theme song. We watched the character’s intros change each season as they grew while others were added or taken away, and now we’re watching them all over again—no, I don’t mean in their new series, but even more recent than that.
This past Wednesday, the 9th of April, several members from the original cast posted a video to their social media accounts recreating the famous introduction to the show, which include clips they filmed in their homes. They all wrote the same thing: ‘Full Quarantine. Stay Safe and Stay Home,’ the caption reads, ‘Unlike #FullHouse this will all go away. #fullhousechallenge #wewin.’
The video begins similar to the original—with a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco—and depicts what each member has been getting up to during their time in quarantine. John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Dave Coulier (Joey), Candace Cameron Bure (DJ), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), Andrea Barber (Kimmy) and the creator of both shows Jeff Franklin are all doing something different, which includes everything from sanitizing and cleaning to sleeping in. Lori Laughlin, who played Aunt Becky, wasn’t involved—but as we know, it seems like she’s got some bigger fish to fry at the moment.
In case you’re not into the universe of TikTok, this Full Quarantine video is following a ‘challenge’ users of TikTok have taken upon themselves. Though it’s more of a trend than a challenge, it involves users showing each of their family members doing unnatural, yet hilarious things as a parody to the original show intro, as seen in the TikTok video below.
The Full Quarantine video as well as the TikTok trend offers a pleasant distraction, and a comforting feeling just like the original theme song always will. Sure, celebs can post all they want on their Instagram stories about what they’ve been up to, but are they *this* creative with it? Your move, Friends cast.
