Actor Matthew Perry, most widely known for his role as Chandler in the 90s hit sitcom Friends, is releasing limited-edition Friends-themed merchandise to support the World Health Organisation’s efforts against COVID-19.   

Perry’s merch line includes mugs, baseball caps, sweatshirts, and t-shirts that bear Chandler’s witticisms or a picture of his signature dance moves.  

The 51-year-old actor took to Instagram to post a photo of himself wearing a shirt with his character dancing as he pretended to talk to a banana for comedic effect. The shirt also reads one of Chandler’s famous catchphrases, “Could this BE any more of a t-shirt?” 

“What is this, a limited edition t-shirt for charity?” For two weeks only, I’m releasing an apparel collection! Proceeds will support the World Health Organization’s COVID 19 relief efforts. Link in bio. Bana

Matthew Perry also posted photos of his fiancé, Molly Hurwitz wearing another one of his shirts and a baseball cap from his merch line. The baseball cap reads, “What is this, a baseball cap?”  

Though best known for his role in Friends and other movies such as The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and 17 Again (2009), Perry is also a well-known for his efforts in the not-for-profit community, particularly in helping to rehabilitate men suffering from alcohol and drug abuse.  

Perry, whose battles with alcoholism and drug abuse have been public knowledge for many years, once converted his Malibu, California home into Perry House, a sober-living facility for men that offered meditation and a 12-step workshop.  

In 2015, Perry received the Phoenix Rising Award from the nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation organization Phoenix House.
