Party crashers are lame. They show up uninvited, eat your food, flirt with your guests, and get drunk on your dime. Not cool.
If however you’ve got someone like Bill Murray crashing your party, you’ve got nothing to complain about. Instead, you can be sure you’ll be bragging about it as the absolute highlight of your shindig.
That’s the situation one groom-to-be found himself in over Memorial Day weekend when the actor/comedian walked in on his party and offered some first-class advice on finding the one. The groom’s friend caught the whole thing on video and explained to The Concourse how it all came together:
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 f***ing Murray walks into the room and gives this speech.
The aforementioned speech was addressed to everyone except the groom because as Murray explained: “You know how they say funerals are not for the dead, they’re for the living? Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they’re for the unmarried.”
And with that he led into one of the greatest, most sage advice we’ve ever heard on making sure the person you’re with is the person you should stay with forever. Check out the newsclip above and the original video below.
