Diary: Media buyers cash in on final Friends mail

Some people will stop at nothing to earn a quick buck and none more so than those hard-bitten masters of negotiation, the media buyers.

To remind agencies about the final series of Friends, Channel 4 sent out a mailing of ten different postcards to buyers around town.

But, realising that there are some sad people out there who will pay for anything Friends-related, the postcards did not hang around the offices for long.

On the auction site eBay, alongside signed pictures of David Schwimmer et al and a Joey badge, are full sets of postcards.

At the time of writing, full sets were going for £3 but anyone who pays more than this really does need to get a new set of friends.
