Bill Murray‘s contributions to TV and film are countless, but in the past decade and a half, he’s somehow captured the zeitgeist of “going viral” and has become more myth than man.

Whether funny, absurd or just sweet, here are seven of the Bill Murray-est moments of all time in honor of his birthday today (September 21.)
