Legendary comic Bill Murray, as well known for his movies as he is for his tendency to photobomb random people, outdid himself this weekend when he showed up at a bachelor party, unannounced, to give a speech. According to Deadspin, a group of Boston College grads were celebrating the upcoming marriage of groom EJ in Charleston, when one of them spotted Murray at the steakhouse where they were dining. The man approached Murray, asking him to "say a few words" for the groom, but Murray demurred.

He must have changed his mind, however, as Murray appeared later on with some advice -- not for EJ, but for all of his single friends:


"Here’s what I recommend to you. If you have someone you think is the one, don’t just sort-of-think...let’s make a date, let’s plan this and make a party and get married. Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world to places that are hard to get to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK… you’re still in love with that person? Get married at the airport.”

Of course it's worth remembering that, though they are wise words, Murray may not be the best guy to get your relationship advice from.
