Video: Ghostbusters Return

I can’t believe that nobody has ever done this before, a “Ghostbusters” parody in which the boys zap and trap “good” apparitions that weren’t haunting or terrorizes anyone. In this case, a man’s dead wife and little daughter. The concept seems too obvious. But I like that this Funny or Die exclusive, directed by “Wet Hot American Summer” cinematographer Ben Weinstein and starring the comedy group Chubby Skinny Kids, doesn’t go for the easy movie mash-up route. This isn’t “Ghostbusters” meets “Ghost Dad.” They don’t go after Sam Wheat from “Ghost” or — oh yeah, “Family Guy” already did that gag.

Okay, but that one didn’t have this exchange: “Who you gonna call?” “F*ck you!”

Watch the parody after the jump.
