Bill Murray, the Great Interrupter of Building Sites

  • SHARES

So you’ve hired an architect, spent months planning, followed by contractor hires and them bringing in their crews to start the labored process of getting a new building built. Despite all the stress, everything is going along just fine, but then the worst possible thing happens, the thing you’d hoped to avoid during this whole difficult endeavor that’s sure to delay everything: Bill Murray shows up and starts reading poetry to the construction workers. Found by way of A Daily Dose, this video shows Murray during the building of the Poets House‘s new home in Battery Park, where the actor had apparently popped in for a tour (one assumes he’s a donor) and decided to share a little verse:

The building was finished late last summer, but the video was just recently put up, so either the edit took a while or they just forgot they had a very funny clip of Murray. Either way, enjoy.
