This could have been a bonus track on Daft Punk's Alive 2007.

I shared this with all my internet friends, delighted at the musical hijinkery.

And then I got the joke.

That is a bad order for things to go in, generally.

Wow, that's a lot more ectoplasm than I expected.

I saw that headline and the lyrics snippet and I immediately wondered if Neil Cicierega had done a Ghostbusters re-mix. Jesus, is his style really that distinctive?

(In additional weirdness, this was the ad on the side of the Youtube page. Tell me that doesn't look like Cicierega cartoonifying himself!)

Why is this starting at the 50 second mark?

This was amazing, but understates the complete freakiness of the original video. Welcome to the neon house! Use our neon telephone! Beware, this house is haunted by Ray Parker, Jr. Don't run too fast through the corridor of bright green doorways! Here's 80s celebrities John Candy, Danny DeVito, Chevy Chase, and more! oh my god we spent our entire budget on neon and coke

but at least we got Columbo

I think the joke of this was allready established in Ghostbusters 2 when the heroes sprayed a man with thier goo until he was happy.

I cannot see Peter MacNicol without hearing "Why am I drippings with goo?" in my head. He's had a long and varied career, I've enjoyed him in many things, and yet that's the line that sticks and nothing he ever does will change that.

I don't see what's so sexually charged about a giant explosion of liquid marshmallow.

The invisible ghost bed part is still too much omg.

...nor is there any reason to read into the fact that the source of said sticky white goo is dressed as a seaman.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Did you choose anything?
Dr. Egon Spengler: No.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to Winston] Did YOU?
Winston Zeddemore: My mind is totally blank.
Dr. Peter Venkman: *I* didn't choose anything...
[long pause, Peter, Egon and Winston all look at Ray]
Dr Ray Stantz: I couldn't help it. It just popped in there.


Nothing to read into at all, move along!

Virals intensify. All-Girl Ghostbusters are a go, male sexuality will be objectified, cats and dogs, living together, mass hysteria!

Tell them about the twinkie.

The phrase "bustin' makes me feel good!" was kind of an in-joke with some friends and I a few years back, so this aligns nicely with my interests.

I always thought "I am the Gatekeeper. Are you the Keymaster?" was about as explicit as they could reasonably get.

I want a new drug.

I'm honestly surprised Neil didn't stick some sort of overt reference to Heuy et al in there. His position on e.g. the use of credit cards for transit is well established.

...and it was at that point, that the green-screen "ghosts" floating around Ray Parker Jr. suddenly became soiled Kleenexes, an image I was unable to shake.

Neil Cicierega is a master at the anti-mashup, taking the bits of songs that are all buildup and no payoff, the least catchy parts, the ones that make you anticipate the catchy, recognizable part, but then he denies you that part. It's an exercise in musical frustration. I'm impressed.
