Bill Murray, After Years of Lobbying, Finally Appeared on Parks and Recreation Last Night


Amy Poehler has been publicly lobbying Bill Murray to play the mayor of Pawnee since 2011, and in last night's penultimate episode of Parks and Rec, she finally got her wish. There was just one problem: The mayor was dead, so Murray got his big Parks and Rec introduction lying in state like Lenin.

Fortunately, Mayor Gunderson also recorded a posthumous video message, which afforded Murray a short opportunity to do his Bill Murray thing. On his deathbed, the mayor received total consciousness, which is nice.
