Raw footage from 1982 of Bill Murray doing takes for "Wired In," a never aired series on modern technological trends and innovations: "People have hands - I think that watches should have hands."

Raw footage of Bill Murray and his brother Brian Doyle-Murray at the 1976 Superbowl: Bill pretends to be a goofy Cowboys fan while Brian interviews him, confusing some fans.

Videos are in Java but switchable to Quicktime.

The first link killed my browser (Safari 4 on 10.5), Firefox doesn't seem to like it much either but it's better behaved.

"Wired In"? Some kind of a TV magazine show? Nobody'll ever go for a title like that.

Had to go to the YouTube link to see the vid...the original just was a test pattern.

"I'll try to stay ahead of your shadow here." Bill Murray is a consummate professional who knows how to work with a cameraman.

Is that a man or a lady reading the paper in the background? My first thought was lady but on further inspection I'm not so sure.

The video I linked to is 10 minutes longer than the youtube version, though it's pretty much more of the same. Personally, I could watch footage of Mr. Murray reading from the Bible & be entertained.

The test pattern ends after 45 seconds & the footage begins. Patience, virtue, etc.

No he isn't - he's so foul-mouthed they had to bleep out all of his lines in the movie.

It's sort of interesting to see him develop the material, and see how little difference there seems to be between his persona and his personality.

This looks kinda like when someone thinks you're funny and every time you go out with them they ask you to say something funny on the spot. Slightly pained, slowly refined to mediocrity, captured for all posterity.
