We’ve got so much time for David Sch­wim­mer

WEÕRE CALL­ING it The One Where Ross Stole Some Beer. Last week, David Sch­wim­mer – fa­mous for play­ing Ross in Friends – had the per­fect re­sponse to the ac­cu­sa­tion that he re­sem­bled an al­leged thief.

Af­ter the sus­pect was caught clutch­ing a crate of beer on CCTV, po­lice in Black­pool posted an image of the man on­line. Thou­sands of Face­book users pointed out he bore an un­canny re­sem­blance to David’s char­ac­ter, Ross Geller. Cue the Friends ref­er­ences on­line, with one so­cial me­dia user quip­ping: ‘Shouldn’t he be at work… or is he on a break?’, while an­other wrote: ‘PIVOT’. Even Dum­fries Po­lice got in­volved, warn­ing civil­ians to ‘keep away… he is known to have stud­ied karate and we be­lieve he has mas­tered the art of Un­agi, the state of to­tal aware­ness’.

David then posted a par­ody video on his so­cial me­dia to dis­pel the ru­mours, show­ing him car­ry­ing a crate of beer as he ner­vously shuf­fled past the cam­era. ‘Of­fi­cers, I swear it wasn’t me,’ he wrote along­side the video. ‘As you can see, I was in New York. To the hard­work­ing Black­pool Po­lice, good luck with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. #It­was­ntme.’

Po­lice later de­nied that the sus­pect was David. Which can mean only one thing: it was Russ.

David Sch­wim­mer, not to be con­fused with Ross, Russ, the Hol­i­day Ar­madillo, or a Black­pool thief!
