Police in Blackpool are looking for a man who stole beer from a restaurant, and social media posters are having a field day since the man bears a strong resemblance to David Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller on "Friends," the BBC reported..
Blackpool police posted the image of the man last Saturday on its Facebook page, which elicited memes and videos of some of Schwimmer's more memorable quotes from the situation comedy that ran from 1994 to 2004.
Police quickly confirmed that the thief was not Schwimmer.
“Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses,” the police department commented on its Facebook post. “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.”
Schwimmer also took to social media using the hashtag #itwasntme, re-creating the scene in Blackpool with a video of his own.
"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," Schwimmer tweeted.
