The day is coming when celebrities won't have to leave the comfort of their homes in order to make public appearances, as Bill Murray's Hologram demonstrated on David Letterman's show. Referencing the recent performance by Tupac's hologram at the 2012 Coachella music festival, Bill Murray discusses the benefits of having a virtual reality doppelganger to help alleviate the tasks of being a pop culture celebrity.

The hologram appeared next to Bill Murray and began interacting with Paul Shaffer. Holding a banjo, virtual reality Bill Murray looked eerily authentic despite the black and white display. In a comical turn of events, the hologram reappeared to show a less flattering activity.

It is eerie and impressive to see this real-life interaction with virtual reality subjects.
