Bill Murray. It was a cinderella story. At Google.
About a week out, we were told of a potential event with Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer, on tour promoting Rock The Kasbah (click the link to find showtimes near you). Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel and Kate Hudson also star. Nothing for the shoot confirmed. Hopes were high and we got our stuff together.
We’ve shot at Google hundreds of times in the past 4 years. Most recently, the cast of “Straight Outta Compton”, Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clark, Julianne Moore and Ellen Page. Richard Dawkins, Al Di Meola, Amanda Palmer, The Beach Boys, You can see some of them here. We were ready to add Bill Murray to the list.
Two days out, we got the GO.
Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer and a live Google audience in “Tunis”, the showcase room at Google HQ in Mountain View, California.
Bill Murray hands out beer and popcorn, talks about being a caddy (“be invisible”) tells a joke and talks about stoner vegans (“eating healthy may be important one day”). Bill and Mitch also talks about Rock The Kasbah, released to theaters this week. Bill Murray does “Bill Murray” and goes deep.
Enough spoilers. Let’s go to the videotape…or in this case, H.264.[youtube_video] watch?v=g8w8njfGgls&list=PLkt79SJLMSCkKQ3OWs_qQ2_n8-IUi-Gis&index=1 [/youtube_video]
