TV star Matthew Perry (51) is launching “Friends” clothing to come and raise money to fight the corona.
He says this himself in a post on Instagram, where he stands in a T-shirt inspired by his own character in the popular series.
In his hand he holds a banana, which should look like a phone.
In the accompanying text, Perry explains that he designed a limited collection of clothing for income for the World Health Organization, WHO, and the work against the coronavirus.
«I will only sell this collection for two weeks“, He writes and adds that joking”the banana is not included».
America’s people and other major media cover the stunt.
Several million have clicked “like” on the picture, and several thousand have commented. The 51-year-old has gathered over 7.3 million followers since he came on 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 pictures on the clothes he is now going to sell for a good cause, Chandler Bing shows as he dances.
The cult series ended in 2004 after ten years on the air, but is still very popular.
The power giants have fought to secure their rights. In 2018, Netflix flipped the net amount of NOK 850 million.
In February this year, WarnerMedia bought the “Friends” rights for over 700 million kroner a year – for five years – to be shown on HBO Max.
In March next year, Perry and the other friends will also appear on television again, at a “Friends” reunion on HBO Max. The project has been delayed due to the corona pandemic.
Incidentally, Perry sails in daytime tails. He recently proposed to his 29-year-old girlfriend Molly Hurwitz – and got yes.
Otherwise, the star’s life has offered both good and bad things after the “Friends” dot. In 2017, after only three seasons, CBS chose to reject the “The Odd Couple” series, in which Perry played the lead role and was a producer.
Looking back: Matthew Perry talks about drug abuse
In 2018, he went on a very health slam. The star, who has struggled with substance abuse and has been to rehab several times, was hit by a stomach ache that led to three months in hospital.
