Someone Pretended To Be Ross Geller After Getting A Text From A Stranger

Hello, this is Ross Geller at your service.

Posted on

If there's one thing Ross Geller would want you to know about him...it's that he's A FREAKIN' PALEONTOLOGIST.

Seriously, guys, he really wants you to know how much he knows about dinosaurs.

So when Reddit user 3XyoureOut got a text from a stranger who was trying to get in contact with someone named Ross, they knew what they had to do: pretend to be Ross Geller, iconic paleontologist.

First, "The New Ross Geller" talked about his rollerblading dilemma and his hatred for Gunther...

...then "Ross" tried to guess which of his five friends he was talking to, because certainly this couldn't be someone named "Sasha"...

(We'll excuse "Ross" for getting the name of Joey's show wrong.)

...then he explained to Sasha that he can't help her cheat because he's not about to lose Rachel again...

...and, finally, "Ross" told Sasha to watch Friends.

Somebody sent me the boy from my class's phone number, and I mixed up a few of the numbers. And that's just the number I ended up with ... I was like, wait, 'This is the wrong number.'
He did not have any of the answers.

BuzzFeed has reached out to "The New Ross Geller"... but they're probably too busy trying to trick Monica into believing that they're watching TV when they're really not.

IMPORTANT ROSS UPDATE

BuzzFeed spoke with 26-year-old Brian Loushin, the texting "Ross Geller," who says the idea to respond as Ross came to him right away.

I was honestly expecting it to flop immediately, and definitely after I asked to meet her at Central Perk. That seemed so obvious to me because even if you have only seen a few shows you would probably know that place. She didn't respond very quickly after I told her to meet at Central Perk so I tried to bait the hook again and she bit.

As for whether or not Brian will text Sasha in the future, he says he's "messed with her enough."

Well done, new Ross. Well done.
