Breaking News: Keith Morrison, AKA Matthew Perry’s Stepdad, Emerges from Under His Rock!
In a stunning turn of events, Keith Morrison, renowned Dateline correspondent and stepfather extraordinaire to the legendary Matthew Perry, has finally broken his silence after what feels like eons of hibernation.
For the uninitiated, Keith and Matthew’s mom, Suzanne, have been on this wild ride called marriage since 1981, and rumor has it they’ve even managed to raise four kids without breaking too many dishes.
In a move that shocked everyone who thought Keith only spoke in dramatic voiceovers, he took to Twitter this week with a plea that sounded less like a Dateline exclusive and more like a late-night infomercial.
“I know this isn’t my usual gig. But hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, and I’m here to pitch you a deal sweeter than a Dateline mystery. Support Matthew’s foundation, and you might just save the world. No pressure, though,” Keith declared, probably in his signature suspenseful tone.
Accompanying this unexpected tweet was a link to the Matthew Perry Foundation’s website, where you can apparently contribute to the cause of making the world a better place—one witty comment at a time.
The Matthew Perry Foundation, not to be confused with a secret society of sarcastic actors, is Matthew’s brainchild dedicated to helping those wrestling with the beast known as addiction. It’s like Batman’s lair, but instead of gadgets, it’s filled with good vibes and a mission to kick addiction’s butt.
According to Keith, “This is not the sort of thing I commonly do, this pitch. But this year is different. And tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. Do what you can; he would have been grateful.” Translation: Do it for Matthew, and maybe Keith will finally take a break from narrating ominous stories for a day.
Matthew’s family, in an exclusive statement to ET (because apparently, everyone has exclusives these days), emphasized the importance of honoring Matthew’s legacy. They’re so committed to this mission that they’ve unleashed the Matthew Perry Foundation upon the world like a comedic superhero squad.
“It is important to us as a family to honor Matthew’s legacy. The potential that the Matthew Perry Foundation has to help those suffering with this disease is something we are proud to bring to the world.” Because nothing says “legacy” like a foundation armed with humor and the power to heal.
So, dear readers, grab your popcorn, settle into your favorite armchair, and let the saga of Matthew Perry’s Foundation unfold. It’s not your typical Dateline episode, but who said charity couldn’t use a little comedic twist?
