Bill Murray has become the urban equivalent of Bigfoot -- a mythical figure who generates sightings anywhere people are too drunk to totally trust their memory. Instead of being half-human, half-ape, Bill Murray exists somewhere between celebrities and the rest of us. He's in movies like a celebrity, but he doesn't have a publicist, or barricade himself inside of a mansion. But his forays out into the real world prove that he's not quite normal people either ...
What Bill Murray Gets Away With
#5. True Bill Murray Story If It Was Some Dude Named Fred
-As reported by New York Magazine's Grub Street.
"It seems that after a gallery opening in Chelsea, Fred Murray told friends he wanted to go to a dive bar, but they convinced him to hang with the cool kids at BEast instead ... He wasn't allowed to stay
ed for some time, because he was sporting a leather vest over a plaid shirt.
As he left, Fred Murray was heard calling his friends "a bunch of dicks" as they pointed and laughed at his ridiculous vest from inside the bar."
#4. True Bill Murray Story If It Was Some Dude With Similar Hygiene
- As told to The Chive.
"About 15 minutes later we get a knock on the door... IT'S BILL , SOME OLD GUY I'VE NEVER MET
MURRAY! We were all shocked annoyed of course but at that point we were already pretty trashed so the party just kept going. He was super nice they all fit right in dressed like a hobo. His girl was really cute, and as far as I remember, from Amsterdam. She she sang a bunch of random French songs while we made wanking gestures behind her back!
At some point he bought us all a round of some weird green drink and wouldn't tell us what it was so naturally nobody would go near it, except Steve the Drunk who
. I later found out it was Chartreuse some French liqueur made by monks. Apparently you are supposed to sip it like an idiot I just shot it down. The high point was when Bill and I sang a duet of an Elvis song called, "Marie's the Name." Random I know, but so was the night. We were all drinking and dancing and screaming our asses off. We tried not to make him feel uncomfortable though of course later we all joked about picking the Ghostbusters theme. Amazingly, they stuck around the entire night, about 4 hours. As you can imagine it was all pretty surreal. Something I will never ever forget....Viva Bill Murray!
They're probably still trying to rinse the hobo semen out of Steve's corpse."
