1984 Ghostbusters TV Commercial Outtakes Have Surfaced, and It's SO Refreshing.

The world is in a state of mass hysteria right now, and we're not talking about dogs and cats living together. It just seems like around every turn, 2020 has a new surprise to challenge our sanity; and while we're NOT getting "GB3" this year, at least we get some feel good content for our eyes and ears- a look behind-the-scenes for an absolute classic 20th century pop culture moment.

The video, uploaded by The Official Ghostbusters YouTube Channel on May 31(sorry for catching it late, we were preparing to launch the site) shows Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis going through the motions and having their way at tonal inflection and delivery for the "We're Ready To Believe You" commercial from the 1984 classic movie. It would seem that the concept of the world "being distracted" is true, because somehow this video has less than 10,000 views. That seems like a crime.

I'm an easter egg and trivia guy, so I won't spoil it but you'll probably love this video if you're into factoids mainly because there are a couple different versions of their lines peppered throughout this 5min montage. I can also stand to watch movie outtakes for days on end with zero shame.

Honestly, I don't know about you but I just really needed to see something like this so I figured it couldn't hurt to share, whether you've seen this or not. It definitely deserves more attention and hopefully it helps you a bit.

Oh, and in-case you were wondering. Yes we have Ghostbusters homage merch on the site.
