Bill Murray, the undeniable King of Whimsy and Lord of Mystery, took to Reddit for a decidedly candid AMA in promotion of Rock the Kasbah, his new film also starring Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, and Danny McBride. Though Bill the God was inevitably asked many of the same questions we've likely heard and/or read a million times throughout his decades-strong career, the certified legend made the best of the territory by enjoying "a bit of tequila" while dropping gems like this party-crashing story involving a less-than-enthused Andy Warhol:
Well, we crashed a famous party called the subway party to celebrate the premiere of Tommy, in the 70s. It was Gilda Radner, Belushi, Harold Ramis, Joe Flaherty, Brian Doyle Murray, and we were all plus 1, probably. It was biggest party ever in NYC at the time. You couldn't get into this party. It was an inner circle thing. It was at an enclosed subway stop, it was a roar. It was a scream. If you made an airport movie with everyone on the plane is a celebrity, it was like that times 10. We were doing a show in the restaurant cabaret, the guys catering were the same guys who gave us left over french fries, we went into the backdoor to the subway with everyone. Everyone saying hi, hello. And we felt like we didn't belong at all. It was so fantastic. I have compassion when people say dumb stuff to me. I said to Andy Warhol "I love the soup can" and he looked at me like "You don't belong here." What a time that was.
What a time, indeed. Elsewhere, Bill the God admitted he’s quite the fan of Flavor of Love, would really enjoy being invisible, and revealed that the "best" and "worst" things about "being Bill Murray" are actually one and the same:
The worst thing about it, they're one in the same: You wish you could walk down the street and look at things and watch things uninterrupted. The shock of being recognized brings you out of this place where you're just trying to take it in. Its an obligation and you're reminded you have to show up. It's a coin with two sides. As much as I don't like the one side, the other side is what might save me.
Some users made note of Bill the God's less-than-perfect wording throughout the AMA, with one person taking on the task of actually creating a BillMurrayTranslator account. While many speculate that the sometimes convoluted responses were merely the result of a shoddy "Siri-like dictation device," Bill appeared to offer a different theory when signing off for the evening:
EDIT: This was a blast. Really fun guys. Enjoyed this immensely. We had a bit of tequila. Whatever. See the movie. Talk soon.
