Matthew Perry was honored at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade with a subtle, but sweet, tribute during a performance outside the iconic superstore.
Singer-songwriter Jax performed a cover of Jet’s Are You Gonna Be My Girl atop a Toys ‘R’ Us float while wearing a grey sweater emblazoned with a shot from a famous scene in Friends.
The image showed Courteney Cox’s Monica wearing a turkey on her head alongside a shocked Chandler Bing, played by the late actor.
The beloved star was found dead in his hot tub on October 28, aged 54. His cause of death has been deferred, pending the results of a toxicology report.

Eagle-eyed viewers were quick to pick up on the tribute, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Love Jax’s special Friends Thanksgiving tribute t-shirt. Matthew Perry, this one’s for you.’
Another said: ‘Jax wearing a hoodie with Matthew Perry has my heart melting.’
‘Jax I loved your tribute to Matthew Perry #ChandlerBing,’ wrote a third, while a fourth added: ‘Jax this shirt is amazing. Great tribute to Matthew Perry.’
The image was a scene from season five of the seminal 90s sitcom, titled The One With All The Thanksgivings, which saw the group sharing stories about their worst Thanksgivings.
In a flashback scene Monica tries to humiliate Chandler by seducing him into taking off his clothes as pay back for once branding her ‘fat’.
But her plans are thwarted when she accidentally drops a knife and nearly severs his toe.
In the present day Chandler is upset that his weight jibe nearly cost him a digit and storms out, with Monica later placing a turkey on her head, complete with a fez and a pair of sunglasses in an attempt to break the ice with him.
A slew of tributes have been paid the the actor in the wake of his tragic passing, with the cast of Friends sharing staggered posts on Instagram earlier this month.
Courteney, 59, reflected on the start of her character’s onscreen romance with Matthew, by sharing a clip of them in bed in London – when their first tryst was revealed – and a fun outtake.
She wrote: ‘I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day.
Viewers quickly picked up on the sweet gesture and praised Jax for recognizing Matthew
