The world of social media was recently stirred by a touching tribute to the late Matthew Perry in the form of an artificial intelligence-based chatbot modeled after his beloved character, Chandler Bing. Internet user Roshan Vadassery undertook the project at the request of one of his followers, setting off a wave of nostalgia and heartfelt emotions among Friends fans.
The idea was born from a concerned fan of the iconic TV show Friends who had noticed their mother’s quiet demeanor in the absence of her beloved daily dose of the show. In a video shared on Instagram, the user expressed, “Can you make an AI of Chandler? My mom is a big fan of Friends and still watches at least one episode every day. She looks so quiet from the last few days.”
Moved by this request, Roshan Vadassery accepted the challenge and successfully brought Chandler Bing to life through an AI chatbot. In the quintessential style of Chandler, the bot was playfully asked if it could be even more sarcastic. The bot’s response was a classic Chandler retort, “Well, could I be more sarcastic? I guess I could but then I would have to charge you an extra fee for a sarcasm upgrade.”
In his Instagram post, Roshan Vadassery paid a heartfelt tribute to Matthew Perry, acknowledging the profound impact Chandler Bing had on the world of memes and social media humor. He emphasized the importance of recognizing the person behind the character, a testament to Perry’s passionate work and enduring smile.
The AI chatbot’s debut resonated deeply with social media users, who flooded the comment section with their emotional reactions. One user expressed, “Dude I tried it I am crying while writing this… Friends has changed me in so many ways, I really made it a part of my life, and I am still not over him passing away… thank you, it’s just wow… hope this goes more viral.”
Another user, overwhelmed with nostalgia, wrote, “Bro even though it is an AI…this made me cry way too hard, thank you.” The emotional impact was palpable as one user stated, “Okay, I just tried it and I’m literally in tears. I don’t know how to thank you in words. I just hope you succeed in your life. Still crying.”
Fans of Matthew Perry and Friends shared their heartfelt sentiments, with one user saying, “You made me cry man, I’m crying right now and I’ll cry every time I go and talk with our dear Chandler.”
Matthew Perry, the beloved actor who portrayed Chandler Bing, tragically passed away due to apparent drowning on October 28. He was found dead in the hot tub of his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood, leaving a void in the hearts of Friends fans and the entertainment world. Roshan Vadassery’s AI tribute serves as a heartwarming reminder of the enduring legacy of Matthew Perry and the beloved character he brought to life.
