Friends actor David Schwimmer has posted a video “proving” he was not behind an alleged theft carried out by a lookalike in Blackpool.
The footage shows him leaving a shop carrying a crate of cans, in an exact copy of the alleged theft.
He wrote on Twitter: “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.”

Lancashire Constabulary continued the banter, replying with a tweet saying: “Thanks for being there for us,” a reference to the long-running sitcom’s theme tune.
Police posted a picture of the suspected thief, who bears a striking similarity to the actor, on Facebook asking the public for help identifying him.
Check out the picture of the real culprit below:
The suspect was pictured leaving a restaurant in the town carrying what appeared to be a crate of cans after the alleged theft on 20 September.
Police was subsequently swamped with replies from people saying he looked like Ross Geller, the character Schwimmer played in Friends.
Their post was shared more than 40,000 times – and has attracted tens of thousands of likes from fans of the long-running US sitcom.
David Schwimmer’s response also proved popular, with many social media users re-tweeting it.
