Matthew Perry launches a Friends-themed clothing line to alleviate the coronavirus.
The actor – who played Chandler Bing in a long-running sitcom – announced on Instagram that he was creating a limited clothing line based on the blockbuster.
In addition to a photo of himself wearing a Friends T-shirt pretending to be on the phone with a banana, Matthew wrote: “What’s that, a limited edition charity T-shirt? For only two weeks I am releasing a clothing collection! The proceeds will support the World Health Organization’s efforts to assist with COVID 19. Link in bio. Banana not included. “
The t-shirt has three images of Chandler dancing, with the words “Could this be a T-shirt already?”
Matthew announced it on Instagram a few weeks after confirming that the long-awaited meeting with friends was scheduled for March 2021.
The actor – who starred alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer on the show – announced it on Twitter last month.
Then he said: “The convention of friends will be postponed to the beginning of March. It looks like a busy year is approaching. And that’s what I like! “
The very high-profile show was originally scheduled for May 27, coinciding with the launch of HBO Max, but the launch had to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Marta Kauffman, the program’s co-creator, then admitted that she hoped to delay the session until the live audience could come.
“We all want this to happen. We just have to wait for it to be safe. It’s a script-free show, but this is how it works – we’re going to need a live audience. Even if we’re socially distanced with this live audience, it’s really a huge part of what they are. “Friends” … We can’t do it without them.
“Everyone is on the inside and we’re just waiting for this time when we feel we are connected to attract a lively audience.”
