British police are looking for a shoplifter who resembles Ross Geller, a character from the 1994-2004 TV comedy series Friends.
Facebook users noticed the similarity when police posted surveillance camera footage of a man carrying a carton of cans from a restaurant in Blackpool, northwest England.
The footage was even seen by David Schwimmer, the actor who played Geller. Schwimmer posted a video on Twitter of himself holding a carton of beer in a convenience store and acting suspiciously.
Schwimmer wrote: “Officers, I swear it wasn’t me. As you can see, I was in New York.” He wished police well with the investigation.
Lancashire Police later confirmed that “David Schwimmer was in America on this date.”
Britain’s Daily Star newspaper ran a story about Schwimmer’s look-alike under the headline “I’ll Beer There for You,” a play on the theme song to Friends. (AP)
