What if Bill Murray just showed up in your Karaoke room? (9 Photos)

theCHIVE EXCLUSIVE: If you're a fan of Bill Murray, you're going to love this story.
One of our users named Mike (pictured above) is a very lucky man. I was sent these photo after he and his friends went out to have a few drinks at their local Karaoke bar, Karaoke One 7 in NYC. Shortly after their arrival, Mike noticed that a couple women had just walked into the place with a man that looked a lot like… Bill Murray?! The crew went out to confirm that the man, was in fact, Bill Murray himself. Mike's friend even mustered the courage to invite Bill to chill in their room, but they just laughed it off. There's no way that was going to happen.

I'll let Mike take it from here:

"About 15 minutes later we get a knock on the door... IT'S BILL F@#KING MURRAY! We were all shocked of course but at that point we were already pretty trashed so the party just kept going. He was super nice and they all fit right in. His girl was really cute, and as far as i remember, from Amsterdam. She sang a bunch of random French songs!
At some point he bought us all a round of some weird green drink and wouldn't tell us what it was. I later found out it was Chartreuse some French liqueur made by monks. Apparently you are supposed to sip it ... like an idiot I just shot it down.
The high point was when Bill and I sang a duet of an Elvis song called, "Marie's the Name." Random I know, but so was the night. We were all drinking and dancing and screaming our asses off.
We tried not to make him feel uncomfortable though of course later we all joked about picking the Ghostbusters theme. Amazingly, they stuck around the entire night, about 4 hours. As you can imagine it was all pretty surreal. Something I will never ever forget…Viva Bill Murray!"

    […] Like in 2008 when Murray jumped out of an airplane with the U.S. Army Parachute team The Golden Knights as part of Chicago’s 50th Air & Water Show.  Or how about the Green Bay Packer fan who was playfully pushed by Murray at a Bears/Packers game back in January? Unusual, but not that strange? How about crashing a fraternity party in Scotland? Back in 2006 USA Today reported that then 56-year old actor showed up at a large house party with 22-year old college student Lykke Stavnef.  Murray reportedly drank booze from a coffee cup and then  helped keep the party going by washing some dirty dishes gathering in the kitchen sink. Earlier this year a group of young New Yorkers partying at a popular karaoke bar were stunned when Murray walked into a bar and accepted their invitation to party with them. The photos of this unexpected evening must be seen to be believed. […]
