Bill Murray is a singularly unconventional celebrity, a charm machine churning out wacky anecdotes that have turned the man into a figure of myth-like awe and disbelief. Telling his stories as eerie, unnatural occurrences around a campfire works well because all the stories about him seem too good to be true. As a spooked-out guy in the Are You Afraid Of The Dark-inspired video below asks, “Bill Murray isn’t real, right?” Bartending just for fun, joining a bachelor party, turning down offers for another Ghostbusters, and having an 800 number rather than an agent—it does make one wonder if Bill Murray is real or simply a phantom who appears briefly to cause mischief and then vanish. Like every good Are You Afraid Of The Dark? story, this spot-on parody leaves viewers wondering where the story ends and reality begins.
