At this point, we're not sure if Bill Murray is an actor or just a mythical creature who randomly pops up to spread joy and cheer to those in need. We've seen him show up in engagement photos, at major sporting events, everywhere, really. Recently, Murray popped up at a Baylor University basketball game and serenaded a delighted grandmother who was there celebrating her 94th birthday.

Grandmother Wible's (yes, that is actually her name) grandson, Noah Wible, posted a video of Murray singing "Happy Birthday" to his grandma. It quickly went viral, because, well, it's a video of Bill Murray singing "Happy Birthday" to an adorable 94-year-old woman.

If you're not a Bill Murray fan already, you will be soon. I can't believe this happened. It is Grandmother Wible's 94th Birthday. She doesn't get out much anymore, but wanted to attend her first Baylor basketball game.. On the way to the game she shared with me how excited she was to get out of the house. See about this time last year my Grandfather Wible (her husband) of 73 years passed away and she has been feeling lonely lately. Well little did she know that for her birthday she was going to sit front row, Baylor would win, and she would not only meet Bill Murray, but have him sing Happy Birthday to her. Mr. Murray, you sir, are a legend and here's why. He was bombarded with people asking for pictures all game, his team (Xavier) he came to support lost, and he not only was willing to take a picture with my grandmother but was the one to ask if we could sing Happy Birthday to her. He didn't have to do that, I just asked him if we could take a quick picture. He genuinely wanted to make my Grandmother feel special. He is truly a class act. So Happy Birthday Maryellen Hook Wible, I love you and am thankful I was able to come down to celebrate with you!
