It's the day every Friends fan has been waiting for. No, not the day it's announced that there's going to be a Friends movie. This is way more important — we finally know who Ugly Naked Guy is!
You remember him, right? He's the ugly naked guy who lives opposite Monica's apartment. He's the ugly naked guy who Monica and her pals think is dead so they make a long stick to poke at his ugly naked guy body to check he's okay. Turns out he's not dead. His ugly naked guy body is just asleep.
That episode — The One With The Giant Poking Device — happened in season three. And UNG also showed up in season five's The One Where Everybody Finds Out. He's mentioned in a whole heap of other episodes but these two are the only ones where you see a little slither of his nudie body. So we've always wondered who the real man behind the naked neighbor is. Lucky for us, Huffington Post did their research and figured out it's a gentleman called Jon Haugen, despite IMDb stating that the character was played by Michael Haggerty. But he actually plays the janitor Mr. Treeger, aka Joey's dance partner.
So here's your guy. Your ugly naked guy, who by the way is neither ugly nor naked...
After they hunted him down (not with a giant poking device hopefully…) Jon told the site: "There's only one Ugly Naked Guy, man, and that was me. I wasn't really expecting them to call me back for me to do it again. It was the best time in my life."
He also revealed that he wasn't really naked in the scene where he's hanging out with a nude Ross, played by David Schwimmer.
"We were just in boxer shorts and they made it look like we were naked."
The sorcery of television never fails to blow the mind…
