SAPULPA, Oklahoma – During a radio interview this morning, Hollywood actor Bill Murray took a moment to praise Sapulpa, Oklahoma residents – a small town near Tulsa – who had helped him with a mechanical issue with his rental car as he passed through the city recently:
“We were just leaving the city limits of Sapulpa, Oklahoma when I noticed that we had a flat tire so I pulled over to the side of the road and we were about to call the car company but then just a minute or two later there were two, maybe three cars that pulled over behind us and offered to put the spare on. So I let them. I mean, I was just so impressed that people could be that friendly to pull over so quickly and offer to help a complete stranger. You have to understand that this is something that would’ve never happened in L.A.!” Murray said with a laugh.
He added later, “And they had no idea who I was before they pulled over. So yeah, that’s my story about Sapulpa. It’s nice to know that there are still places like this in America.”
