Matt LeBlanc Goes Meme-Viral In Ireland After Friends Reunion, Fans Turn Him Into Internet's Favorite Uncle

"Friends: The Reunion" is still making a buzz as Matt LeBlanc becomes everyone's favorite old-timer. His appearance on the show earns him the attention of the Irish public on Twitter. 

The actor, who once played Joey Tribianni on the hit sitcom is now dubbed "your Irish da'" or everyone's uncle. Even Scottish netizens joined the bandwagon as they claim the actor to be one of them.

Based on this article by Cnet, the shot of him seated with his arms crossed and his legs spread apart stretched in front of him gave the Irish viewers a whiplash. The cherry on top was his stripped, short-sleeve button-down shirt which he matches with a relaxed, slightly glazed-looking smile that gives off "your Da' sitting on the couch during a quick stop at your grans" type vibe.
