Bill Murray strikes again.
Known for his public shenanigans, actor Bill Murray gave an impromptu musical performance in New York City’s Washington Square Park on Wednesday afternoon.
In videos captured by filmmaker and influencer Nicolas Heller, Murray recited “Dog” by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and performed a rousing rendition of “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story, aided by a binder of laminated pages. He also talked to a dog who seemed a little too starstruck to respond.
Accompanied by cellist Jan Vogler, violinist Mira Wang, and pianist Vanessa Perez, Murray was going strong until his performance was cut short by the police. “The cops say we have to turn off the microphones,” Murray said. “Let’s rip this place apart!”
