Netflix has greenlit a Christmas special hosted by Bill Murray, cementing (or maybe just confirming once more) his transformation into a human meme rivaled by no one, except for maybe Drake. Summer is cool and all, but don't you want to fast-forward to December, when there will be an instant-streaming variety show look the holiday hosted by Bill Murray wearing reindeer antlers and looking wistfully out a window while a piano plays in the background in a nod to Lost in Translation? Wouldn't you do the winter all over again in exchange for this wondrous piece of entertainment--which is reportedly being directed by Sofia Coppola? Why does it have to be so beautiful out today when our souls are so icy? Watch the teaser for A Very Murray Christmas below, and tide yourself over before Yule tidings with The Dissolve's wonderfully comprehensive look at Murray's career.
