We all know Bill Murray can show up in some random situations while most fans of his are waiting for his latest film St. Vincent to hit theaters later this year. But coming out of nowhere is an off-kilter sci-film from 1984: Nothing Lasts Forever. Saturday Night Live writer Tom Schiller directed the movie that features Murray as the conductor of a bus to the moon. The film was screened once for a group in Seattle and shelved due to a poor response. Never to see life on VHS or DVD, it has now made its way onto YouTube.

Slate reports Nothing Lasts Forever follows a young man named Adam, played by Zach Galligan (Gremlins), an aspiring artist who moves to New York only to find that the Port Authority has seemingly taken over and turned the city into a totalitarian state. Adam is forced to work as a night watchman at the entrance of the Holland Tunnel, where Dan Aykroyd cameos as his boss. Soon Adam finds himself trying to prove his worth as an artist, but ends up on a bus to the moon, on which Murray plays the conductor, to find his true love.

The film is almost entirely in black-and white with a few jumps to color and even has a few musical numbers. Watch the film above.
