The stars of Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” reboot have endured an unbelievable amount of online rage for more than a year, and on Friday they struck back in the best possible way — with a song. Not just any song, mind you, but an a cappella version of the “Ghostbusters” theme.
Appearing on “The Graham Norton Show,” Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones were surprised by Feig, who popped up in the red chair for the “That’s All We’ve Got Time For” segment. But instead of telling the traditional humorous story, the director made a request.
“Since we’re all in the business of ruining men’s childhoods,” he said, “Kristen and Melissa came up with this way to really enrage men, which they thought would be to do the ‘folk-lady’ version of ‘Ghostbusters,’ so I would like them to perform that for you.”
They agreed, but only if Feig would allow himself to be doused with bright-green slime. The result is both funny and terrible, reminiscent of Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer’s performances as Marty and Bobbi Culp on “Saturday Night Live.”
Unfortunately, however, the “folk-lady” rendition probably won’t make it onto the “Ghostbusters” soundtrack.
