British police are searching for a beer thief, and the only information they have to work with is the fact that he looks like Ross Geller from “Friends”.
The robber in the surveillance video looks like David Schwimmer, even the actor himself felt the need to provide an alibi.
The robbery took place last month in the British city of Blackpool, and the city police posted an image of the suspect.
Immediately, people noticed the suspect’s striking resemblance to the character “Ross” from the show “Friends”.
The original post generated more than 100,000 comments and has been shared more than 65,000 times, and it got the attention of the actor himself.
Wednesday, Schwimmer posted a spoof video of himself re-enaction the incident with comment “Officers, I swear it wasn’t me, as you can see I was in New York.”
He also included the hashtag “It wasn’t me”.
Blackpool Police got in on the joke, too. They tweeted that they had investigated and could confirm that Schwimmer was in the United States that day.
