Inspired by a Twitter argument between friends Dan Van Winkle and Kev Kage over whether the new Ghostbusters theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott is any good, I replaced the music in the first new Ghostbusters trailer with the 1962 novelty song classic “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett.
The original Ghostbusters theme song would also be shit if it weren’t the original Ghostbusters theme song.

.@realkevkage @Dan_Van_Winkle Guys. What if — hear me out — they just use Monster Mash as the new Ghostbusters song?

For comparison, here are the original versions of “Monster Mash” and “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)”, as well as the unaltered Ghostbusters trailer.
