As if Bill Murray needed any more street cred, video of the famous comedian giving some quality life advice to a bunch of bros surfaced on Deadspin this morning.
Here’s the background story, from Deadspin:
Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ’s bachelor party. 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. We talked to the waiter to see if we could send him some drinks, to which Bill declined.
One of my buddies then went down and asked if he’d come up and say a few words for EJ and got a “No thanks.” My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it’s not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill fucking Murray walks into the room and gives this speech.
Without trying to rain sh*t on these bros’ story (it’s very, very cool), I’m sure that Bill has given a speech like this before. It’s just too perfect. “You know how funerals are not for the dead, but for the living? Bachelor parties are not for the groom…”
Listen to the whole speech below.
