The True Identity Of Ugly Naked Guy From Friends Has Finally Been Revealed
Welcome to the stage...UGLY NAKED GUY.
Sometimes in TV shows, there are small and unexpected things that steadily grow to become the stuff of legend. Take Glenn Coco from Mean Girls or Ugly Naked Guy from Friends - both minor, uncredited characters that are inexplicably probably also up there as some of your all time favourites.
But while his identity has been a secret for all these years, the internet has once again proved its worth in revealing who Ugly Naked Guy really is to us once and for all.
Yep, while he was referenced over and over on the show, UNG actually only appeared on Friends twice and his face was never shown, leaving one journalist to wonder, who really is Ugly Naked Guy?
A year of investigation later (seriously, this guy got paid to do this) and he's back with an answer: Ugly Naked Guy is actually an actor called Jon Haugen.
You've got HuffPost reporter Todd van Luling to thank for this revelation and finally tracking Jon down on a phone call, he tells him: “You want to let the world know who the real Ugly Naked Guy is, huh? There’s only one Ugly Naked Guy, man, and that was me."
While he remembers his time on the show fondly, we're guessing most of you will know him best for the time he played dead and the Friends gang poked him with some chopsticks to see if he was alive or not.
“It wasn’t painful. The hard part was holding my breath,” Haugen says, recalling his iconic moment.
“It was, like, almost two o’clock in the morning when we were filming that part and I was real tired because we had rehearsed all day. It was the last scene and I had to make sure I was perfect to get everybody out of there to go home.”
So is Jon - aka UNG - up for a reunion show?
The answer is a big fat yes, and he adds: “I was hoping they would bring me back and we’d do some more. Maybe we can create a buzz and get everybody back together.”
But what do you reckon - want to see this happen? Drop us a tweet to @MTVUK to let us know, please and thanks.
