    Courtney Cox recreated the scene this Thanksgiving to wish her fans a happy holiday. The actress started the video by wishing her fans Thanksgiving and snapping out, remembering that she recreated the scene three years ago. However, when she calms down, Courtney puts a turkey on her head with glasses with a ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ text flashing in orange.

    In a 2016 interview, the director, Kevin S. Bright, confirmed that they did not use a real turkey on Courtney and Matt’s heads due to health hazards.

    He told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s meat, it would need to be refrigerated between takes, and it’s going to be under hot lights — you’re going to put that on Courteney Cox’s head? I don’t really think so.”
