TV star Matthew Perry, 51, is launching “Friends” -inspired clothing to raise money to fight the corona.
He says this himself in a post on Instagram, where he poses in a T-shirt inspired by his own character from the hit series.
He holds a banana in his hand, which should look like a telephone.
In the text accompanying the photo, Perry explains that he has designed a limited collection of clothing for income for the World Health Organization, WHO and the fight against the coronavirus.
«I am only selling this collection for two weeks“He writes and adds jokingly”the banana is not included».
People and other major American media are covering the stunt.
Millions of people clicked “like” on the photo and several thousand commented. The 51-year-old has amassed more than 7.3 million followers since hitting Instagram in February this year.
Perry played the role of Chandler Bing in “Friends,” or “Friends for Life,” as it was called in Norwegian. The illustrations on the garments he is now going to sell for charity show Chandler Bing as he dances.
The cult series ended in 2004 after ten years on the air, but is still very popular.
The power giants are struggling to secure their rights. In 2018, Netflix converted the net amount of NOK 850 million.
In February of this year, WarnerMedia bought the “Friends” rights for more than 700 million kronor per year – for five years – to show it on HBO Max.
In March next year, Perry and the other friends will also be on TV again, in a “Friends” reunion on HBO Max. The project has been delayed by the corona pandemic.
By the way, during the day, Perry sails in the wind. He recently proposed to his 29-year-old girlfriend Molly Hurwitz – and got yes.
Otherwise, the star’s life has offered both ups and downs after the “Friends” spot. In 2017, after just three seasons, CBS chose to reject the series “The Odd Couple,” in which Perry both starred and produced.
Looking back: Matthew Perry talks about drug abuse
In 2018 he went on a good health battle. The star, who struggled with substance abuse and had been to rehab several times, was stricken with an ulcer that led to three months in hospital.
