Bill Murray Crashes Bachelor Party, Gives SpeechBy: Mike Tuttle - May 27, 2014
“Bill Murray has got to be so f***ing sick of being the coolest guy in any given room by now.”
Bill Murray sightings aren’t new. The 63-year old actor has been known to pop in and out of nowhere, doing crazy cool things, and then popping back out again.
Well, he’s at it again.
Through Stephen (no last name) and Deadspin footage, we learn about Murray’s bachelor party appearance this weekend in Charleston, S.C.
“Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ’s bachelor party,” Stephen writes. “At one point during dinner at a steakhouse, one guy goes to the bathroom downstairs and sees Bill Murray sitting with some people with a fishing vest on.”
Let’s pause right there. Bill Murray is wearing a fishing vest. At a steakhouse. Once that sinks in, continue on.
To Stephen’s dismay, Murray declined drinks the bachelor party guests try to send him, as well as a request to come and say a few words to the groom, EJ. However, just a few moments later, Murray appears.
“My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it’s not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill f***ing Murray walks into the room and gives this speech,” Stephen says.
During the speech, in which Murray appears a bit tipsy, and the party-goers seem overwhelmed that this is really happening, the Ghostbusters actor gives advice not to the groom, but the other men in the room, given that “it’s too late for this guy.”
“If you have someone you think is the one,” Murray says, “don’t just think, ‘Let’s make a date, plan a party, get married.’ 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, if you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.”
As if that wasn’t epic enough, after Murray congratulates EJ, he tells everyone to “pick him up over our shoulders,” and helps them to lift the groom in the air.
In the past, Murray has been also seen randomly bartending at SXSW (everyone got tequila, no matter what they ordered) and driving people home in a golf cart after closing time at local bars.
