We’ve already covered how American hero Bill Murray will receive The Mark Twain Prize for American humor at the Kennedy Center later this year (it was awarded to Eddie Murphy last year). It’s a high honor in the comedy world.
He’s also fresh off riding a wave of positive reviews for his voiceover role as the bear Baloo in the critically acclaimed Jungle Book reboot from last March, as well as a small role in that recent all-female Ghostbusters reboot that dudes on the internet got way way way too pissed off about (sorry, spoiler alert). But the film legend and Saturday Night Live alum still continues to periodically pop up in headlines from time to time with new Murray-esque shenanigans. Weird pranks and crashing random events — the guy likes to surprise people.
One of those surprises this weekend in Brooklyn will be slinging drinks for patrons.
From Page Six:
The star will sling drinks at 21 Greenpoint, where his son Homer is a partner. The same spot housed Homer’s former eatery, River Styx, which shuttered Aug. 14 after three years.
Just sit back and take a second to let all of that sink in. Imagine going to a bar, ordering your drink of choice, and seeing Bill Murray, the man from Caddyshack, Stripes, and Groundhog Day, behind the bar taking orders and slinging booze. You would get terrifyingly intense goosebumps and your eyeballs would probably pop out of your skull.
A Ghostbuster handing you your shot of Fireball on a Friday night? Damn. If that idea doesn’t excite you, you’re dead inside and probably have no soul. Shame on you..
