There's A Thief On The Loose Who Looks Weirdly like Ross Geller

Diply 24 Oct 2018

Before I get going here, let me just say that stealing isn't cool. Don't do it.

With that out there, can we talk about how much it would suck if you robbed a store and they happened to get footage of you — and then that footage went viral?

That's what happened to this David Schwimmer (aka Ross Geller) look-alike, and it's hilarious.

When you think of David Schwimmer, obviously your first thought is Ross Geller from Friends, right?

I don't even know why I'm asking. Of course it is.

What else would it be? Melman from Madagascar? I think not.

But to David's credit, the movie is pretty great and good for some laughs.

But still, we're all about Ross Geller around here.

Now, I'm sure you all know by now that Ross is a pretty controversial topic in today's social climate.

He's basically everybody's least favorite friend, and for good reason, honestly.

He's needlessly dramatic about everything, treats his friends super rudely, and don't even get me started on him and Rachel.

He's super problematic. If you want to get into it, slide into my DMs or something and we can chat.

Anyway, Ross definitely has one of those "faces."

Do you know what I'm talking about? Like, the guy isn't all that unattractive or anything, but he has a look about him that you'd recognize anywhere.

In the past, he's been compared to various creatures, like this cat.

As a sidenote, I feel really bad for this cat.

As a side-sidenote, he also looks a lot like Adam Driver.

So now do you get what I'm talking about when I say he just has one of those "faces?"

He can't help it, it's just the way things are.

Anyway, we're here to talk about this alleged thief who is wanted by the U.K. police.

Blackpool Police released a photo of a man wanted in relation to a theft that occurred at a restaurant back in September.

This thief also happens to have one of those "faces."

It wasn't long before people pointed out that this man looks suspiciously like Ross Geller.

And I mean...yeah. He really does.

I bet the thief's hair is both really greasy and really crunchy looking at the same time, too.

Just scrolling through the comments on the post, and I'm not even joking when I say that I've never seen a comment section so lit before.

People really came through with the Friends references.

We need more content like this on Facebook.

The comment section on literally any other post on my feed is full of trolls and angry keyboard warriors.

And I know what you're thinking.

Maybe this alleged thief isn't just a Ross Geller look-alike. Maybe he IS Ross Geller.Does David Schwimmer love to pinch in his spare time? Has his Friends money run out?

Load Comments

The answer would be no, no it has not.

Facebook | Blackpool Police

The Blackpool police officially confirmed that David was in fact in America on the date that the theft occurred.

Why am I disappointed right now?

Load Comments

I just want to know why, if you clearly look like a famous face from the '90s, would you ever risk putting yourself out there like this?

GIPHY

And all for what? A case of cans?

Some people think that this might be the best news story to come out of 2018, and they're not wrong.

Go ahead, try and find a better one. I dare you.

David Schwimmer, being the hilarious man that he is, took to Twitter to confirm that he's innocent, and was clearly in New York.

Okay, maybe he's not the worst friend.
