Bill Murray could stand on a stage and read a phone book and we would still find it mesmerizing, but he really pulled out all the stops when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night.

The show is coming from the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, this week and Murray, 64, dressed for the occasion. Wearing a cowboy hat and matching boots along with a red dress, fringed cardigan and a crossbody tote, the Oscar nominee arrived onstage atop a horse – riding sidesaddle, no less.

“He’s a one-man festival on his own, and he’s with us for no other reason than to bring joy to our lives,” Kimmel said as he introduced the star, whose rode out accompanied by a Mariachi band.

“What a cute outfit,” Kimmel remarked. “You look very pretty, very beautiful.”

Enjoy the video above and pay special attention to Murray’s legs. Like the rest of him, they’re pretty remarkable.
