You can't keep anything from us, Bill Murray!

Ah, the wonders of technology. First it gives us the remote control, then the Roomba — and now, it’s been used to solve one of the most impenetrable riddles in all of modern cinema.

Yes, film fans, we’re talking about just what exactly Bill Murray whispers to Scarlett Johansson at the end of Lost in Translation. Thanks to YouTube user Vid22 and the magic of digital audio processing, no longer must we be tormented by this mystery.

As Slashfilm‘s Peter Sciretta reports, Translation director Sofia Coppola has always maintained that Murray’s whisper was unscripted, and that only he and Johansson knew what was said — and good luck getting it out of either of them. Well, now the secret’s just a YouTube video away!

There. Aren’t you glad you found out?
