Bill Murray, Pabst Pants


The spirit of Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack lives on.

Bill Murray, a regular on the celebrity pro-am golf circuit, spiced up his usual tournament attire today in the form of some of the loudest pants we've ever seen.

And we've seen a lot of loud pants.

These particular ones were emblazoned with an all-over pattern of blue and white Pabst Blue Ribbon logo and red diamonds, making for a killer photo op for anyone lucky enough to steal a moment of his time at the Murray Brothers Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament in Jacksonville, Fla.

The fashion-eschewing star, who may have worn a tux to the Oscars but did not bother to comb his hair, is pretty known by now for his devil-may-care attire.

Really, we wouldn't have it any other way. It just doesn't matter to him, you know? (And let's not forget his shirt, a red T-shirt with a picture of the Dalai Lama holding a golf club that said "Big Hitter.")

"Bill Murray is in Jacksonville hanging out with @FCNLindsey and he's wearing PBR pants," tweeted Travis Gibson, along with a photo of the Grand Budapest Hotel star posing with NBC 12 weather reporter Lindsey Boetsch.

The Murray Brothers' weekend-long tourney kicked off today with the Pond Charity Golf Classic, which so far has donated $440,000 to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

"People come out, they contribute some money, and you see something wonderful happen like, like that really cool snowmobile that that guy's got to drive in," Murray told NBC 12's First Coast News, referring to one beneficiary, an Army National Guard veteran, who was paralyzed in a car accident and received a new trackchair from the foundation.

"I don't know why he has a snowmobile in Florida," the actor quipped, "but what an amazing wagon he's got to roll around in. And that's some sort of token repayment for what he gave."

Explaining his pants, Murray said, "I've always been partial to Pabst Blue Ribbon. I like that beer, I think it's good. Goes well with bratwurst. And these are the Loudmouth Guys that make these pants. I've never seen one that had a straight-ahead ad on them like this, so it's kind of unusual.

"And you can wear this anywhere. I think Pabst Blue Ribbon crosses all socio-economic lines."
