David Schwimmer Responds To Police Hunt For Look-Alike
This past Tuesday, Police in Blackpool, UK posted on Facebook looking for information about a thief caught on camera stealing a case of beer.
Do you recognize this man? About that... Before it was deleted today, the post had over 170,000 comments, and most of them were Friends references. As the post was reaching viral levels, the Blackpool police took to the comments to assure the public that David Schwimmer was not involved:
"Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses. We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date. We're so sorry it has to be this way." - Blackpool Police
The piece de resistance in this fun little look-alike scandal? David Schwimmer himself responded.
Yep, that's a video of Schwimmer sneaking through a NY grocery store with a case of beer. We're honestly quite impressed by his commitment to the role. Note his dark clothing, fluffed hair, and disheveled pack of beers, quite similar to that in the police photo. He's even got the vaguely concerned expression down. #itwasntme
Pivoting and sandwiches aside, the actual thief himself may want to lay low for a while. We have a feeling people will recognize him.
