Watch: Bill Murray serenaded in New Orleans with "Ghostbusters" theme!

It's been talked about and it's been written about almost since the moment it happened in December 2014. Now, thanks to the Internet, fans can get a front-row seat to the moment actor Bill Murray was serenaded with the Ghostbusters theme by New Orleans trombonist Glen David Andrews at the Three Muses on Frenchmen Street!:

The video taken by an audience member at the show was actually uploaded to YouTube back at the time by a user calling himself only "Daniel," but that video resided in relative obscurity -- clocking fewer than 300 views -- until Andrews posted it Saturday morning (April 16) to his Facebook page. Check it out in the embedded video above.

In the two-minute clip, a clearly pleased Murray smiles and claps along as Andrews and his band lay into a trombone-heavy version of Ray Parker Jr.'s call-and-response theme ("Who you gonna call?") from the 1984 film, which is still one of the more crowd-pleasing movies on Murray's lengthy filmography. At one point during the song, and with the crowd rocking along, Murray rises to his feet to show his appreciation.

Seated two chairs to Murray's left, and also apparently enjoying himself, can be seen filmmaker Jon Favreau, who recently directed Murray in Disney's Jungle Book remake.

It was that movie that brought Murray and Favreau to New Orleans for a 2014 recording session with Doctor John and Kermit Ruffins, both of whom appear on the film's soundtrack. While in town, Murray and Favreau -- music fans both -- decided to hit Frenchmen Street, the clubs of which Favreau became acquainted a little more than a year earlier while shooting scenes for his 2014 film Chef in town.

"It was one of the most exciting moments of my career, to be sitting next to Bill Murray with him smiling and them playing Ghostbusters to him from like 10 feet away," Favreau said in a recent interview with Mashable. "Then he leaned over to me and he was like, 'You know, Jon, you really need a theme song.' He really got a kick out of it."
