Police in England are searching for a man caught on camera stealing beer who looks an awful lot like Friends cast member David Schwimmer.

The Ross Geller lookalike’s photo was shared by Blackpool police on Facebook Tuesday, with him carrying what appears to be a case of beer.

Officers were hoping someone might recognize the thief and they did, en masse, as Ross. Over 125,000 comments specifically relating the Friends doppelgänger to the character sprung up on the post.

Schwimmer doubled down on the authority’s confirmation that he’s not their their by reenacting the culprit’s candid camera moment in a video shared to Twitter.
