I am a huge fan of the TV show Friends. When I’m having a rough day, I throw in a DVD of one of my favorite seasons and watch some of my favorite episodes. The show’s relatable humor gets me smiling every time and brightens my day. At 32 years old, I feel for the characters and their crazy antics. Even if you haven’t watched Friends, you’ve probably heard of some of the jokes. The show will always have a place in pop culture and, thanks to streaming services, will likely always be available to get a few laughs.
Matthew Perry, the actor who plays the humorous Chandler Bing, has decided to open up the Could this BE any more of a Matthew Perry mech store? which has a number of branded products all portraying Chandler and jokes from the character. Hats, hoodies, mugs, and shirts are labeled with images of Chandler’s well-known dance and sayings. Hats are for sale that say “What is this, a baseball cap?” and hoodies are imprinted with “Could this BE any more of a sweatshirt?”
He’s not just reliving the glory days, though. Perry is donating proceeds to the World Health Organization’s COVID response fund. The goal of this response fund is to “ensure that a billion more people have universal health coverage, to protect a billion more people from health emergencies, and provide a further billion people with better health and well-being.”
Chandler is probably my favorite character on Friends. He’s funny, out of touch with women, and is a… wait, what’s his job? Anyway, Perry’s wonderful move to help the WHO with the COVID response fund makes the actor just as much of a favorite in my book.
