David Schwimmer responds to viral beer theft post with spoof video

American actor David Schwimmer has responded to an appeal by Blackpool Police after beer was stolen from a restaurant, insisting that “it wasn’t me”.


On Tuesday (23 October), Blackpool Police posted an appeal for witnesses on Facebook after a man stole a pack of beer from a local restaurant.

The post has since been shared over 111,000 times and received over 169,000 mostly from fans of US sitcom Friends.

The man in question bears a striking resemblance to one of the show’s main characters, Ross Geller, played by David Schwimmer.

Despite a statement from Blackpool Police stating that the man was not the Friends star, Schwimmer himself has intervened with an ‘alibi’.

He wrote on social media: “Officers, I swear it wasn’t me. As you can see, I was in New York.

“To the hardworking Blackpool Police, good luck with the investigation”.

Police are asking anyone with information on the man’s true identity to email 7798@lancashire.pnn.police.uk quoting log LC-20180920-0670.

Schwimmer starred in Friends for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004 alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
