“No one will believe you”

“No one will believe you” said by Bill Murray after stealing a fan’s french fry and vanishing into a crowd, or that’s as the story goes. It’s Bill Murray’s birthday today! Happy Birthday, Bill! From SNL to Ghostbusters, Bill Murray has been making us laugh for decades.  And he is a wild card that very few people can predict his next move. And he has a tendency to pop up unexpectedly in public. Like at a White House Press conference as pictured above to talk about the Cubs (Hey check out Big Jim’s ranking of Bill Murray movies too).

Bestlifeonline.com has one list of some of the most hilarious Bill Murray encounters. Something about Bill that exudes comedy and warmth. He is the type of guy who steals the show and is the life of the party and you WANT to hang out with him as much as possible. Bill Murray is a wild card that everyone loves and lets him get away with just about anything. He can ruffle your hair, steal your fries and walk away and make you feel great about it.

CLEVELAND, OH – NOVEMBER 02: Actor Bill Murray attends Game Seven of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field on November 2, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

And Bill Murray is not one to shy away from fans. As a matter of fact, he loves to pop up unexpected at events/gatherings/shops/birthdays and absolutely shock and delight everyone. These stories, or “Bill Murray Stories” have become a fun game where reality and fantasy often blur together. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell who actually saw Bill Murray and which ones are too crazy to be real. From birthday parties to bachelor parties to poetry readings, anything is game for Bill.

Here are some of the most unforgettable Bill Murray “sightings”

  • 1. Let's get married

    In 2014, Bill Murray noticed a couple taking engagement photos and decided to try to get them all to laugh while taking the photos. And of course, they got him to join in for an unforgettable photo moment.


  • 2. Wu-Tang Bill

    In 2010, while attending the SXSW festival, Bill Murray and his pals, The Wu-Tang Clan, bartended at a bar called the Shangri-La. Bill served tequila only. And much like many Bill appearances, never happened again. 

  • 3. Slow Down Bill

    A group of young filmmakers, instead of asking Bill for an autograph, asked him to walk down a hallway with them. In slow motion. Too good.

  • 4. Wait..is that Bill Murray?

    Yep, Bill Murray during a rain delay of his co-owned minor league team, Charleston RiverDogs, ran around on a tarp to entertain the crowd.

  • 5. No one will ever believe you

    This line has become famous as part of a story. Which, since there is no video or photographic evidence, we can believe it or not. The story is that a man while eating fries had a fry stolen, by Bill Murray. Before he can be confronted Bill says No one will ever believe you.” and then he crossed over 7th avenue and vanished into a crowd of people. 

  • 6. Bill goes Local!

    In Southfield, Michigan, there is a story about Bill Murray at Walmart. Not just any story, Bill was riding around Walmart on a bicycle, dressed in an old firefighter uniform yelling “You’re on FIRE!” No photographic evidence for this and the story also adds at the end the “No one will believe you” which makes me think, it may have joined the side of fantasy.
