LONDON (CBSNEWS) – A U.K. police force has received thousands of comedic responses after posting an image from a security camera showing a man strongly resembling “Friends” character Ross Geller stealing beer from a restaurant.
Police in Blackpool, in northern England, shared the photo of the man on Tuesday, which shows the David Schwimmer lookalike clutching a crate of beer.
Blackpool Police shared the image on their Facebook page and were inundated with comedy responses inspired by some of the iconic lines from the 90s TV program.
“It hasn’t been his day, his week, his month or even his beer…,” joked one contributor.
“How did he manage to take that unnoticed?” asked Tommy Dunsmuir. “Was someone on a break?”
The police department seemed to enjoy the jokes from Facebook users, taking the time to clear the name of the actor. “Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses,” they said. “We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date.”
