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.
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.
I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?

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

@JustinTrudeau I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal)

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