If this were an episode of ‘Friends’, it would definitely be called ‘The One Where Matthew Perry Joins Instagram’. Because he did. 

The 50-year-old Canadian-American actor and comedian, most famous for his role as Chandler Bing in the 90s sitcom ‘Friends’ has finally joined the Facebook-owned social media website. With 940,000 followers (already?) and zero posts, the most interesting thing about the verified profile -- @mattyperry4 -- right now is the bio: “What is this, my Instagram account?”

Classic Chandler, right?

His arrival to Instagram comes just months after former co-star Jennifer Aniston joined the platform in October 2019. Of course, Perry has followed all of his “friends” there -- David Schwimmer, Courtney Cox, Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc. Other celebrities he follows include Hank Azaria, Kate Hudson, Justin Roiland, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Downey Jr.

Kudrow, in fact, celebrated Perry’s arrival on the website with a throwback photo of the two of them from what looks the earlier seasons of ‘Friends’. She captioned it: “like Finally!!! Yay!! Can’t believe my eyes MY EYES. Welcome to Instagram @mattyperry4.” One can almost read it in Phoebe Buffay’s (Kudrow’s character on the show) voice.

Cox commented on the photo, saying, “Yes Matty!!!” with a heart emoji. Aniston, on the other hand, went with, "Yay Matty! Could you TAKE any longer?” imitating Chandler’s classic pet phrase.

Just a couple of weeks ago on January 24, Cox had shared a throwback photo of the whole ‘Friends’ cast having their final meal during the shoot of the show’s series finale. She captioned it, “‘The Last Supper’ before taping ‘The Last One’ on Jan 23, 2004. #tbt #friends.”

Aniston too, on January 13, shared a photo with Cox and Kudrow, titled, "Hi from the girls across the hall".

To paraphrase the great philosopher Chandler, "Can this BE any more exciting?"
