Justin Trudeau challenges Matthew Perry to a rematch of the fight they had in elementary school

Fight of the year?

Last month, Matthew Perry (I know, I find it hard not calling him Chandler too) appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he proceeded to shared an anecdote that he was 'not at all proud of'.

Matthew Perry, from Friends, and Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, attended the same school. Justin's father, Pierre Trudeau, was prime minister of Canada at the time, and Perry's mother was his press secretary.

On one occasion, Perry and another friend – both older than Trudeau – cornered the younger boy and punched him. 'I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't as good at, so it was pure jealousy, and we beat him up,' Perry told Kimmel. 

'I'm not bragging about this. This is terrible, I was a stupid kid. I didn't want to beat him up. In fact, I think at one point I tried to turn it into love play,' Perry said. 'Well, he is a handsome guy,' responded Kimmel with a laugh.

The clip of Perry on Kimmel has, unsurprisingly, caused a sensation. 


Some users rather cruelly suggested that Perry has seen better days. 


Others, however, leapt to Chandler's defence... well, sort of.

While others drew their own conclusions from the incident. 

Trudeau – safely ensconced in his diplomatic immunity – thought he'd have a little fun on April Fool's Day, taking to Twitter to challenge the actor to a rematch.

Logically, the twitterverse couldn't get enough of the idea of a Perry-Trudeau rematch.

But sadly it doesn't look like we'll be seeing the pair going toe to toe anytime soon: Perry is not keen on facing Trudeau again.

Hmmm, is it really because of the army, Chandler? Or might it be because you've seen the man box?
