Like most people, Bill Murray enjoys belting Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” while driving. A big fan of the singer, Murray told Esquire his admiration for Adele was inspired by his children.

“I became a fan when I was driving my sons to school,” he said. “I had Adele on, and I look in the rearview mirror and all three of my sons are in the back singing. And I’m thinking What the hell touched these guys? So I started singing it myself after I dropped them off.”

Murray even attended Adele’s concert at Radio City Music Hall last November and noted that Adele’s surprisingly filthy stage banter is “really funny.”

“She sings these songs and people are just bathing themselves in tears. They’re just crying and weeping over the way she sings the songs,” he said. “And then she goes [impersonating Adele], ‘So glad that you’re still here. I mean, I had the s—s last night, and it was like all over my sheets, all over me panties and me jammies.’It’s like, ‘What?’ This is the way she talks in between songs. People are just gobsmacked by it, because you don’t see it coming.”
