Enjoy the Ghostbusters Alternative Takes


If you are a fan of the Ghostbusters you probably remember the in-film commercial starring Egon, Ray and Venkman. What you might not know is that this commercial has multiple takes and even variations on dialogue (including the Ghostbusters name). It is exciting to see how they change the tone and words, even if you do not see a lot of big “what if” moments in this video. I think hearing the name variations (Ghoststoppers and Ghostblasters) alone is worth giving this a watch.

Do you think a name can change people’s reception to a film? Would you have watched Ghostbusters if it was called, Ghoststoppers or Ghostblasters?
