Bill Murray Singing Bob Dylan’s ‘Shelter From the Storm’ Is the Best

Bill Murray Sings Shelter From the Storm St Vincent

If you heard that there was a clip of Bill Murray singing a Bob Dylan song making the rounds on the internet, you’d probably assume he crashed some bachelor party or presidential dinner to do his drunken karaoke version of “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35.” Not quite: The clip instead features a rather low-key Murray in camo shorts and a buttoned-down shirt, smoking a cigarette, watering his plant and singing along to the underrated ’70s Dylan cut “Shelter From the Storm,” playing on his Walkman.

The video isn’t a slice-of-life from Murray’s surprisingly sedate home existence, but rather a clip from (or at least advertising) his new movie St. Vincent, in which the traditionally comedic actor plays a military veteran who befriends a 12-year-old boy. It looks promising enough, but if the entire movie was just Murray mumbling along to the entirety of Blood on the Tracks, that’d still be an easy enough sell for us. Watch the clip above, and find a trailer for St. Vincent — which hits theaters on October 24 — below.
