This is The One Where Matthew Perry May Have Traumatized the Neighborhood Children...and Made it Impossible for You to Look at Friends' Chandler Bing the Same Way Again...

The 45-year-old actor, who stars on CBS' new comedy The Odd Couple, recalled on Conan on Wednesday a bizarre and embarrassing event he says happened to him around 1995, months after the hit sitcom debuted on NBC and made him a star.

He said that on one Saturday morning, when he was on "the friendship show," he and his co-stars and the cast of ER, which also aired on NBC, posed for a photo shoot with a group of swimsuit models. He said he returned home early that afternoon.

"I was a little, because of the proximity, a little, how do I say it, randy," he said. "I was horny. There was no woman in my life at the time, so I decided I was gonna take care of my little problem by watching some porn."

So he sat at home and watched an adult movie for about half an hour.

"Parts of it were really interesting," he joked. "So, I'm watching this film and then on comes a scene with like, 20 women, doing unspeakable things to each other on the TV, right, and everything, you know, ends and I wrap up everything and it's all finished..."

"Mission accomplished," host Conan O'Brien said.

"Mission accomplished," Perry replies. "And I don't know about you but once you're done, you're done. You need that movie to come right off. That movie has to be off."

He said he tried to use the remote control to turn off the power but nothing happened.

"And I don't want to stand up and go across the room, 'cause I wanna go to sleep," he told O'Brien.

Turning the volume down was his second choice. But he could still hear the movie.

"And then I remember that the night before, I'd gone out to my backyard with a glass of wine and listened to music," he told O'Brien. "And then I realized that for the last hour, I've been blasting a porno out of my outdoor speakers."

Here's a possible reenactment of the collective response from any neighbors who may have heard it:
