Actor Lookalike Steals Beer – level 1

14-11-2018 15:00

In England, a man steals beer. A security camera films him. People see the video. They put it online. They say that this man looks like David Schwimmer.

Schwimmer is a TV actor. He is famous for his role in ‘Friends’. He goes on Twitter. He wants to clear his name. He says that it is not him stealing the beer. He says that he is in New York when this man is in England. He wishes the police good luck in finding the thief.

Difficult words: lookalike (someone who looks like you), clear one’s name (say that you did not commit a crime), thief (a person who steals – takes something from a shop without paying for it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
