Bill Murray is everywhere and nowhere at once. Bill Murray is the ghost in the machine. Bill Murray is crashing your bachelor party.

The actor, long known for randomly showing up to tend bar or slide into home plate, was apparently hanging out in Charleston, S.C., this weekend, in the same restaurant as a bachelor party. A reader told 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.”

He then proceeds to give some valuable advice to all the groom-to-be’s friends. Has Murray been secretly filming all the event-crashing he’s done for some new reality show? Would watch.
