After his odd Ghostbusters themed baseball game TV commercial a few weeks ago (here), legendary, well, legend Bill Murray has continued his reign of randomness by showing up at a bachelor party in a South Carolina steakhouse to offer some marriage advice!
‘You know how funerals are not for the dead, they’re for the living? Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they’re for the uncommitted,’ he told the unmarried men. He then explained how to figure out if the person you’re with is right for you.
‘If you have someone that you think is The One, don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, “Okay, let’s pick a date. Let’s plan this and make a party and get married,”‘ he said. ‘Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.’
He then picked up the groom and hoisted him over his shoulder while the men cheered. Check out the full video below…
But should we be surprised at this? After all Murray is known for his wildly eccentric behaviour, and we at FTN love him for it. Heres a top five list of Mad Murray Moments:
1 - Bill Seybot recounts one story when he left his laptop open at a Starbucks while he left to get a drink. When he returned, Billy Murray was sitting in front of the screen, using the computer. Stunned, Seybot says that he simply let Murray continue whatever it was he was doing before standing up, saying, ‘No one will ever believe you’ and walked off
2 - On another occasion a group of friends were in New York City karaoke bar, One 7, when in walked Bill Murray with a female friend. They invited the Ghostbusters actor into their booth, but he politely declined. Fifteen minutes later he walked in and bought drinks for everyone and proceeded to sing an Elvis song and then just as promptly as he arrived, left.
3 - In 2010, Bill Murray was at Austin’s SXSW festival with members of the Wu-Tang clan. He arrived at the city’s Shangri-La bar and insisted on bartending. However no matter what they ordered he would only pour them tequila and lots of it.
4 - In 2006, Bill Murray was in St. Andrews, Scotland, for a golf tournament when he went out drinking. He bumped into Swedish student Lykke Stavnef, who invited him to a party. However, instead of dancing away the night, Murray decided to clean up all the students apartment’s dirty plates.
5 – One New Yorker claims that he and his little brother were in Little Italy in the Bronx when they noticed Bill Murray in the same restaurant as them. He was eating pasta and had a bag of unopened chips next to him. One of the brothers was aware of Murray’s unusual reputation for strange behavior so walked up to him, opened his chips, began to eat them and said, ‘No one will ever believe you!’ and walked away. Murray broke into raucous laughter and walked over to the men and gave them both a big hug.
