Actor shows up at event hosted by random stranger.

An LA citizen named Joe, who is a huge Bill Murray fan, decided to host an ice cream social in honour of the actor.

Conveniently, Joe owns CVT Soft Serve, an authentic ice cream van.

Joe told Gawker, “I heard through the grapevine that Bill Murray was shooting a movie in my neighborhood last night. I decided to throw a "Bill Murray Ice Cream Social" near set with the hope that he'd show up. How often do you get to meet your idol? I invited the entire neighborhood and the cast and crew of the film for free ice cream. Long story short, the guest of honor made it to the party and the rest is history. Like my dad always says "You'll never dance with the pretty girl unless you ask."

The 63-year-old actor has become known for mingling with mere mortals.

He previously crashed a bachelor party in South Carolina, photo-bombed a newly wed couple's photo shoot, started working behind a bar in Shangri-La and joined a random kickball game in New York.
