THE ONE WHERE TOMORROW NIGHT IS THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT
Tomorrow night on The Chris Gethard Show, I will reveal which one of the F•R•I•E•N•D•S* has agreed to be my Vice Presidential running mate.
(*My definition of “one of the F•R•I•E•N•D•S” is “any person who ever appeared on the hit NBC television show Friends.”)
Some answers to a few questions I’ve been getting:
— This person will not be appearing live on the show, but will be revealed via prerecorded message.
— It is a human being. (Some people were predicting that it was either Marcel the capuchin monkey from Season One, or the Duck and/or Chick that lived with FRIEND Chandler and FRIEND Joey.)
— Yes, it is someone with actual dialogue on the show. There was valid speculation that it was a background player, but I can confirm that this person was not an extra.
— Also, this person is old enough to be president. (ie it is not Season 10 guest star FRIEND Dakota Fanning.) Obviously, I’m not going to pick a running mate who is ineligible to become President should something happen to me.
There is currently a non-scientific Facebook poll for people to make their guesses and predictions as to who it might be. You can vote for as many candidates as you please, and there are currently 54 possible VPs who have not even received a single vote. I won’t comment on how accurate or inaccurate the voting trends are, but as statistician Curtis Retherford noted, “it’s more likely to be FRIEND Ursula than FRIEND Phoebe” according the current results.
Feel free to ask me any other questions, and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.
