5 Reasons Why Bill Murray Is a Boss
Hey, we know Bill Murray‘s fan bandwagon looks like a train from India at this point, but we’d be fools not to wish the man a happy birthday. On September 21st, a lil’ baby Bill casually stepped into our world, winked at the nurse, and gave some skin to the doctor … literally. To celebrate, we’ve pulled the 5 bestest Bill Murray videos for your viewing pleasure. The best part? He might just show up at your house to watch them with you. True story.
1. He Can Be Served Straight Up OR Remixed
In a lot of ways it’s gotta be tough being a comedian or comedic actor. No one wants to ever take you seriously. Now imagine Bill Murray. Yeah, see? You laughed. His deadpan / dry humor is so convincing that he leaves one wondering uh… is he serious? You feel like the joke is ALWAYS on you. Despite that gift, Bill has managed to carve out a couple lauded dramatic roles. His biggest test might come as FDR in Hyde Park on Hudson, which will hit theaters on December 7th in the midst of Oscar nominee hopeful season.
2. He Has Enough Awesome Performances To Create a Top 10 List
And this is just a sliver of his greatest moments. You could hit triple digits if you counted all the incredible instances ‘off-camera’ that somehow got captured by the press. Now consider all the crap we don’t get to see. You could fill a California’s worth of Bill Murray mansions filled to the brim with what the French call, ‘Le funny.’
3. He’s Not Above Slow-Mo Walks Down Hallways with Strangers
A wise man once said, “Slow motion for me. Slow motion for me. Slow motion for me.” That man is Juvenile. Thanks to Wes Anderson, Bill Murray’s been involved in some beautifully, snail-like saunters towards the camera. But what separates Bill is he’s a man of the people, the common folk. If Arnie can become the Governator, Bill’s got a shot at President of Earth (in 2016).
4. He’s the Perfect Christmas Gift
It’s disgusting how much I love Scrooged. Sickening. Repulsive. Thanks to AMC’s ‘Scrooged’ marathons, there have been nights where I’ll watch it three times in a row. I still get worried and panic-stricken when he’s about to *SPOILER ALERT* burn alive inside his coffin. Sorry to take a detour to Debbie Downer-ville, but it had to be said. Also, I get teary-eyed when the lil’ mute kid speaks. My only issue with the AMC version is we don’t get to see nips on that large-breasted dancer.
5. He Makes The People Come Together… Yeah
Yes, that’s a reference to Madonna’s techno smash hit, Music. Damn proud of it. Of course, music isn’t the only medium dedicated to paying tribute to Murray. There’s graffiti art, canvas paintings, murals – a thousand years from now, our great granchildren’s great grandchildren’s great granchildren’s holograms will bask in awe and wonder as the rubble is cleared away and mankind has nearly been wiped from existence to discover the Museum of Bill Murray still standing. Price of Admission? Infinity.
Happy Birthday, big guy. You’re welcome to join me on my bar crawl in Hoboken tomorrow – think of it as golf for lushes.
