David Schwimmer spoofs video of doppelganger stealing beer
A robber caught on surveillance video looks so much like David Schwimmer, the actor himself felt the need to provide an alibi!
The robbery happened last month in the British city of Blackpool, and city police posted an image of the suspect from CCTV.
Immediately, people noticed the suspect's striking resemblance to the character "Ross" from the show "Friends."
The original post generated more than 100,000 comments and has been shared more than 65,000 times.
And it got the attention of the actor himself.
Schwimmer posted a spoof video of himself re-enacting the incident, with the comment "Officers, I swear it wasn't me, as you can see I was in New York."
Blackpool Police got in on the joke, too.
They tweeted that they had investigated and could confirm that Schwimmer was in the US that day.
