Bleacher Report: “Actor Bill Murray, who is in Jacksonville, Fla. playing in a golf tournament, showed off some incredible PBR pants Thursday morning”
Throughout my life, I’ve been asked a lot of great, thought-provoking questions. One of my favorite questions to answer normally reads as follows:
“If you could switch places with anyone else in the world, who would it be?”
I love this question for one reason, and one reason alone: it’s BAR NONE the easiest metaphorical question I’ve ever responded to in my entire life; it’s not even close, really.
THE answer is Bill Murray. Hands down; no one even comes close. Sure, I at least entertained a few other names—Robin Thicke, Tom Brady, Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake; however, choosing anyone other than Bill Murray is nothing short of blasphemous.
For starters, the guy won an Emmy for Saturday Night Live and has earned a Best Actor nomination for Lost in Translation; not to mention he starred in some of the greatest comedic masterpieces of our time—Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day.
Furthermore, even when Bill Murray isn’t the star of the show, he still is. Just look at Space Jam or Zombieland for God sakes. Space Jam (although one of the greatest cinematic endeavors of all time) wouldn’t have had the impact it did without Murray’s contributions; specifically, the scene where he drops arguably the greatest line in cinematic history. Additionally, I don’t even think Zombieland (although Woody Harrelson is the man) would’ve even made the box office if it wasn’t for Murray’s 3-minute cameo. It was arguably one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever watched.
Furthermore, although Murray hasn’t been the cinematic bulldozer he once was, the guy still manages to make the front page of TMZ every other week for, well, just being the ABSOLUTE MAN. For instance, those PBR pants are downright diabolical. I can’t even fathom the amount of pussy Murray was swimming in at that tournament.
In closing, Bill Murray (when it’s all said and done) might be the coolest human being of all time. He’s easily in the lead right now, at least. I mean, God deserved a pay-raise after he threw that guy on Earth because it was BY FAR his best work yet. Keep cooking em’ up God and we’ll keep appreciating them. Death, taxes, Bill Murray being the fucking man…
