Matthew Perry joins Instagram with the help of one special 'Friend'

Welcome to Instagram, Matthew Perry! 

On Thursday, the 50-year-old "Friends" actor finally made his debut on the social media site, much to the excitement of fans around the world. And while he has yet to post his first photo (we're hoping for a '90s throwback, please!), Mr. Bing has already racked up quite the follower count... 400,000, to be exact. 

Perry was welcomed to Instagram by none other than his former co-star Lisa Kudrow, who shared a throwback of the two from their days on the beloved sitcom. 

"Finally!!! Yay!! Can’t believe my eyes MY EYES," Kudrow wrote. "Welcome to Instagram @mattyperry4 #friendsforlife. "

The actor was the last of the six "Friends" characters to join the social media site. In October, Jennifer Aniston set a Guinness World Record when she joined by accumulating 1 million followers in just 5 hours. In fact, her arrival on the platform caused technical issues for many users.
