A shoplifting, David Schwimmer look-a-like has been sentenced to watch every single episode of ‘Friends’ in one sitting, including ‘The One Where They Were On A Break’, ‘The One Where Joey Has A Sandwich’, ‘The One About The Ghastly Migraine’ and ‘The One About The Thing’.

The man, who bears a strong resemblance to Schwimmer’s character Ross Gellar from the 90’s TV show ‘Friends’, was caught on CCTV stealing beer from an off-licence in Blackpool in October.

While the total amount of beer stolen is still unknown it still angered residence of Blackpool and dampened the enjoyment of at least 3 god awful stag/hen do’s that were taking place in the seaside town that weekend.

The case gained notoriety around the globe as the grainy footage went viral and turned out to be far more amusing than the sitcom ever actually was. The thief spoke exclusively to the Rochdale Herald on Tuesday morning where he released the following statement: “Please kill me.”

The 1990’s sitcom is about 6 acquaintances with excruciating personality flaws and lazy stereotypes that do very little around the town of New York and ran for what felt like 75 years.
