What Did Bill Murray Really Whisper to Scarlett Johansson in ‘Lost in Translation’?


Remember the emotional ending of Lost in Translation, when, with "Just Like Honey" pounding away in the background, Bill Murray whispered … something amazing into Scarlett Johansson's ear as they wished each other farewell? Ever wanted to spoil that scene forever? Then check out the exhaustive efforts of YouTube user vid22dotcom! With background sound removed and digital processing software employed, those solemn final words are revealed: "I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us, okay?"

Is it real? Is it a fake? The extent of postproduction dubbing and Foley work that goes into most movies makes us think that this might be wrong, but even if it's a fraud, it's a convincing fraud, and we totally respect that. What do you think Bill Murray whispered? Let us know in the comments!
