IF there’s a single episode of Friends we’ll happily watch time and time again, it’s got to be the one with Ross’ leather trousers.
But while we always hoped that a talcum-powder disaster of this scale only existed on television, one relatable mum has filmed herself struggling to get into a pair of latex pants with equally hilarious results.

Mummy blogger Laura – known online as Knee Deep in Life – tested out a pair of latex trousers made popular by the Kardashians on her YouTube channel last week.
After going viral for her parody of THAT Beginning Boutique bikini advert, Laura was inundated with requests from her 385,000 Facebook followers to give a pair of Kardashian-inspired skin-tight trousers from China a try.
And let’s just say, her attempts to wiggle her way into the skin-tight pants were reminiscent of Ross’ cringeworthy dilemma back in season five of Friends.
But while Ross somehow manages to get the trousers on in the first place (albeit off camera), Laura starts by slathering her legs in talcum powder.

Like the true multi-tasking mum she is, Laura combines getting her children ready to leave the house with her furious fashion efforts.
After struggling to get the latex design to go over her knees, the mum actually starts POURING talcum powder into the legs in a last-ditch attempt to hoist them up over her bum.
And just when you think she’s succeeded in finally getting the trousers on, an ominous ripping noise tells a different story.

For just one moment, you think she might actually get these trousers on…[/caption]
… that is, until a horrible ripping noise leaves her bum well and truly exposed[/caption]
That’s right, the internet star has officially one-upped Ross by ripping the latex trousers in two and leaving her bum totally exposed. Awkward.
Racking up an impressive 5.9 million views on Facebook, Laura’s fans have flooded the comments with praise.
One wrote : “Absolutely love this lady, she shows us all what life is really like. No filters, no professional make-up, real life mum problems.”
Another added: “This is every woman who isn’t a size 0 trying to get themselves into a pair of skinny jeans. Absolutely howling.”
Meanwhile, others couldn’t help but reference THAT classic Ross Geller scene.
“It’s formed a paste!!”, one joked.
A second chimed in with: “I can’t be the only person that about the Friends episode with Ross’ leather pants…”
