The One Where Ross Becomes A Thief? Social Media Goes Wild With Priceless Reactions As David’s Doppelgänger Was Caught On Cam Stealing

Police on the hunt for a “Friends” character Ross Geller lookalike who is accused of theft from a restaurant in England made a public appeal that went viral.

Police in Blackpool, England, posted an appeal for help in alleged theft of a coat, cellphone and wallet from a restaurant in Blackpool occurred on Sept. 20, and social media users were quick to point out the suspect’s uncanny resemblance to the much-loved sitcom character played by American actor David Schwimmer.

No, that wasn’t actor David Schwimmer stealing beer from a restaurant in Blackpool, England on Oct. 20.

Hilarity ensued when the Blackpool Police Facebook page shared a photo Tuesday of a suspect stealing an armful of beer cans, who looked awfully similar to the “Friends” actor.

“Do you recognize this man?” the post read, accompanied by a photo of the alleged criminal. “We want to speak to him in relation to a theft at a Blackpool restaurant on the 20th September.”

After the post went viral, the actor himself got in on the fun, posting a video of himself sneaking through a grocery store carrying a similar number of beers.
