Bill Murray let loose as he channeled Daffy Duck while singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at the World Series Game 3 on Friday night during the seventh inning stretch.

Sporting Chicago Cubs regalia, he belted out the song before a large stadium crowd, gesturing wildly as he revved up the crowd.

“I said take me out with the crowd!” he yelled toward the stands from the booth at Wrigley Field. “And, in order to sing the right lyric, ‘take me out with the crowd,’ you need to sing it like our greatest American entertainer, Mr. Daffy Duck!”

“So, I want you to spray it and don’t say it,” he said, referencing the Warner Bros. cartoon’s tendency to spit while singing or talking excitedly.

The Ghostbusters star led the crowd into a frenzy before the Cubs prepared to battle back from a 1-0 deficit against the Cleveland Indians.

Stars watching the game took to Twitter to express their thoughts on Murray’s engaging performance.

Murray has been vocal about his Cubs support of late, although he has always been a lifelong fan. The Chicago native recently crashed a White House press briefing to talk up the team’s prowess.

He also saluted the team while accepting the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and shared a childhood photo of him decked out in Cubs gear.

Unfortunately for Murray and other Cubs fans, the team never regained footing, losing 1-0 to the Indians.
