A Cappella Cover Of "The Real Ghostbusters" Theme Tune

How better to celebrate Halloween than with two of the best movies ever, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II?

In their latest addition to their "Saturday Morning A Capella" playlist, YouTube channel Triforcefilms has unveiled an a capella version of the TheReal Ghostbusters theme song!

In the video clip, Mr. Dooves records himself singing humming 13 different parts (which you can see individually), while the theme song's familiar opening titles plays in the centre of the screen. It's one of those videos you can watch multiple times, yet continue to notice new things!:



If you need a refresher, here's the original theme song, in all its nostalgic glory, plus a few more spooktacular Ghostbusters treats. Happy Halloween!:

Ghostbusters Facts You Might Not Know

With Halloween coming up and the reboot on the horizon, it's the perfect time to revisit the supernaturally funny classic, Ghostbusters! Cinefix has put together seven facts you might not know, but even if you do, it's more than enough excuse to bust out the DVD/Blu-ray and change your ringtone to Ray Parker Jr.!:



The rare Ghostbusters facts featured in the video are:

Even though Sigourney Weaver is a big deal, she had to audition for the role of Dana Barrett/Zuul the Gatekeeper in Ghostbusters! Though Sigourney's a big star, Ivan Reitman and the team wanted to be sure that she would be able to do a comedy movie. Sigourney agreed to the audition and performed the scene in which a possessed Dana hovers over her bed! As soon as Ivan realised Sigourney would be willing to bark like a Dog, she got the part!

The role of Louis Tully was originally written for John Candy. John and Harold Ramis worked on Stripes and SCTV together, and Harold wanted John to be apart of Ghostbusters
