LONDON – Nobody told David Schwimmer that life after “Friends” would be like this.
Over a decade on the final of the iconic NBC sitcom, the beloved character Ross Geller is still entertaining people – at least on this British police’s Facebook page.
“Do you know this man?” Blackpool Police asked Tuesday on social media. “We want to talk to him in conjunction with a theft at a Blackpool restaurant on September 20,” the read-out.
The simple question was quickly answered by thousands of people who could quickly identify the man in question. For them the answer was simple: The suspect was clearly Ross.
“I do not think it’s been this guy’s day, his week, his month or even his year,” read a reply, much to many
“The One Where Ross Became a Thief” wrote a fan that gave The event has its own title in the style game.
“Please be careful. He is famous for studying Karate and we believe he has mastered Unagi’s art, the state of total consciousness,” wrote another and referred to the popular episode where Ross makes some dubious comments about sushi and self-defense.
The man in question was the one caught by camera that pinches what appears to be a beer box, desired in connection with a theft that took place in a restaurant last month.
Declared by some as “Facebook Post of the Year”, it answers fast snowballs. From Wednesday, the appeal had raised more than 79,000 shares and more than 120,000 comments.
While some speculated that the flight driver was “stuck in second gear”, others save a thought about the other series’s characters Rachel and Monica, who most definitely would not be impressed by the latest gaffe of accident.
Following an outbreak of joke that demonstrated an encyclopedic knowledge of references in the comment field, Blackpool police issued a follow-up statement:
“Thank you to all of your quick responses. We have investigated this question carefully and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date. We are so sad that it must be like this, “they concluded.
While many comments were centered on Roses most iconic scenes, some people could not resist recalling their favorite “Friends” moment. A user channeling another character, the often inarticulate Joey Tribbiani, wrote:
“Guys this is serious … It was a robbery based on giving and receiving as well as having and sharing. And the stolen objects which they give and share and receive. And through this to have and give and share and receive, we can also share and love and have … and receive. “
This is not the first time a police application If information about social media has taken an unexpected trip. By 2015, Kent’s police force in England was spotted after sharing a sketch of a sought after suspect who should have a striking resemblance to Fred Flintstone. “Yabba dabba is not approaching”, read a warning from time.
Schwimmer representatives did not respond immediately to a request for comments.
