Police identify David Schwimmer ‘Ross from Friends’ look alike
A post appealing for information went viral after Facebook users noticed the suspect, pictured by CCTV clutching a crate of beer, resembled the sitcom character.
Fans of the show had inundated Blackpool Police with jokes after their appeal went viral. "It's not been his day, his month or even his year," one user joked on Blackpool Police's original Facebook post, which was shared over 113,000 times before being deleted.
The episode which one user dubbed "The One Where Ross Became a Thief" led to Schwimmer posting a video on his Twitter page recreating the getaway.
Police have identified a Ross Geller lookalike whose alleged robbery prompted thousands of online comments and a denial from “Friends” star David Schwimmer himself.
Could we BE any more overwhelmed with the response to our CCTV appeal about a theft at a restaurant in Blackpool? Most importantly, we're now satisfied we've identified the man in the still & our enquiries are very much continuing. Huge thanks for sharing it with your Friends 👍 pic.twitter.com/kzcmJsfi1D
