His iconic Friends character was known for his comical complaints and rants.

And Matthew Perry seemed inspired by Chandler Bing on Wednesday when he took to Instagram to complain about a common outdoor annoyance.

The 54-year-old film and television star, who had previously gone silent on the platform for nearly six months, returned with a photo of what looked like a portion of his backyard to get something off his chest.

He called out to Elon Musk, latecomer co-founder of Tesla and the owner of X (recently renamed from Twitter), to help him find a technological solution to his lawn issues.

‘Why can Elon Musk send a woman to the moon and not be able to invent a silent leaf blower?’¬†

In his photo, Matthew shared what looked like a lawn-care worker caring for some of his plants and soil in a more sparsely filled area on the outskirts of his property, just above a white wall.

The photo showed off a gorgeous green section of lawn, along with towering trees and bushes that helped provide some privacy for the actor.

Surprisingly, Matthew’s landscaper didn’t the dreaded leaf blower, though it may have been neighboring properties that were pumping out the deafening noise.

The comic star got plenty of agreement from his fans and followers, who chimed in in the comments.

One celebrity pal, Academy Award winner Allison Janney, was on the same page.

‘Seriously!!! ūüôĆūüŹĽ ,’ she wrote, adding an emoji of upraised hands.

Matthew’s post also referenced one of Chandler’s classic lines on Friends. It wasn’t clear if he remembered the reference, but his fans certainly did.

In one episode, Chandler told Joey (Matt LeBlanc) that he ‘got her machine,’ to which Joey replied: ‘Her answering machine?’

But others were simply shocked that he had returned to Instagram at all, and that loud leaf blowers were the first thing he felt like posting about.

‘My man literally posted after almost 6 months just to complain about the sound of the leaf blower!!! Just Matthew Perry Things ūüėā,’ they wrote.

‘EVERYONE SHUT UP MATTHEW PERRY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM,’ enthused one fan.

Some also took digs at the actor for his seemingly petty complaint, especially because of its privilege, as he wasn’t doing any of the lawn work himself.

‘Because he has people cleaning his lawn ūüėā,’ commented another person.¬†

Elon Musk may not have been the best choice to engineer a new quiet leaf blower.

Although Musk is listed as a co-founder of Tesla ‚ÄĒ which he is also the CEO and former chairman of ‚ÄĒ the company was incorporated in 2003, a year before he became an angel investor with an investment of $6.5 million.

Call for helP: Elon Musk may have been an odd choice to solve his issue. Though he's called a co-founder of Tesla, he was a latecomer angel investor, and ad revenue at X (formerly Twitter) has decreased every month in the year since he bought it; seen in October 2022 in NYC

It was only after a settlement was reached to resolve a 2009 lawsuit by one of the original two co-founders, ousted CEO Martin Eberhard, that Musk was allowed to call himself a co-founder of the company.

Last year, he acquired Twitter for $44 billion, after he tried to back out of an initial deal and then relented when sued by Twitter.

Since his takeover, Musk has laid off a large portion of the social network’s employees and renamed it X.

According to third-party data provided to Reuters, US ad revenue at Twitter has declined every month in the year since Musk took control of the service.
