NEW YORK: "Friends" star David Schwimmer has made a parody video to make it clear that he was not the person who robbed a shop in Blackpool in the UK.
The city police had issued the CCTV footage of a man, who looked just like the 51-year-old actor, following a theft in Blackpool.
The police had shared the image on Facebook, asking for witnesses to identify the man pictured leaving a restaurant in the town carrying what appeared to be a crate of cans.
The photo went viral on the social media with many people noticing the similarities between Schwimmer and his doppleganger.
In the spoof video, posted on Twitter, the actor reenacted the crime, pretending to steal beer cans from a supermarket.
"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. #itwasntme," Schwimmer wrote in the caption.
Lancashire Police replied to the star, saying: "Thanks for being there for us #appreciatethesupport."
