Have you ever done something really questionable and then quoted the Ghostbusters to get away with it? Maybe it was that time you tried to microwave aluminium foil despite warnings from Becky.
And when Becky grasped your shoulder in protest, you screeched back at her, “Back off man, I’m a scientist!” Oh, bless Dr Peter Venkman. He’s been helping rationalise our poor decisions in the name of science since ‘84. Woot. Who you gonna call?
Who you gonna call in these Ghostbusters Shirts?
Alright. Here are three super-duper complicated questions for you.
There’s only one correct answer for all three, and if you get it right, then you’re obviously a true paranormal pundit, a veritable poltergeist pal, and a gargantuan Ghostbusters geek. If you don’t get them right, you probably don’t believe in ghosts, and you’d be better off having a squiz at some alternatives, like these ice-cream t-shirts because, well, who doesn't like getting creamed?
- If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood—who you gonna call?
- If you’re seeing things running through your head—who you gonna call?
- And if there’s something weird, and it don’t look good—who you gonna call?
Your local law enforcement. Duh. (You could also get naked first and hide in the closet before calling the police, too. Why? It’s just strangely disarming to see a naked stranger hiding in a closet. Duh.)
Mmm, you know we’re joking. The rational thing to do is call the police. But, if you’re wearing one of these Slimer’s Slime Time Ghostbusters shirts, and if you’ve had a dose of a freaky ghost, baby. You better call Ghostbusters! Ow.
Threadheads—The Corner Penthouse of Spook Central. We’re Ready To Believe You.
They might brush you off as a liar. Others might call you crazy. And your partner might want to lock you up in the basement for a couple of days while the folks visit. But, you know what?
We’re ready to believe you.
We know that ghosts are real. How else could you explain why our office carpet is in a different spot each morning? It’s definitely, absolutely, indubitably not our office dogs Simba and Nacho.
When you’re not catching us (or our squirrel monkeys) printing t-shirts, you’ll usually find us running around our warehouse trying to catch ghosts in our Ghostbusters totes. It really is a sight to behold. Imagine a dozen good-looking t-shirt artisans running around a warehouse full of direct-to-garment printers screaming, “Don’t Cross The Streams. BY GOD. Don’t Cross The Streams, Ash! It would be bad.”
So, please, step inside the corner penthouse of spook central—the Threadheads Ectoverse, and grab your spine-tingling Ghostbusters hoodies.
We came! We saw! We kicked its ass!
The World’s Favourite Paranormal Removal Company
Ghostbusters is, without objection, the world’s favourite paranormal removal company. In just 38 years, Ghostbusters has cultivated a cult following.
It’s an institution for most of us. And whether you’re 55 or 15, “Who you gonna call?” is an iconic line that’s earned its place in movie history.
The original film (released in 1984) is often lauded as one of the best films of all time. Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures had the following to say: “Ghostbusters—one of Columbia’s most iconic films of all time—[also] basically invented the genre of special effects-driven comedy.” Wowza.
This is all old news, though. If you’re a true fan of Ghostbusters—the type of weirdo who collects spores, moulds, and fungus—you’re not here for the old news. You want the secret facts that nobody knows about.
Here are a few to get your pelvis pinging:
- Slimer, the ghost, was actually called Onion Head.
- The original name for the movie was Ghost Smashers. Ugh.
- Only about three weeks of filming took place in New York City.
What you gonna do in these Ghostbusters T-Shirts? Get Slimed, Of Course.
Call it fate. Call it luck. Call it karma. We believe that everything happens for a reason. And we believe that you found these Ghostbusters t-shirts for a reason.
Because, in the words of Dr Venkman, these tees feel so funky. What else can you do in these Ghostbusters merch aside from getting slimed?
- Walk around your local pet cemetery and talk to the dead parakeets.
- Hide under your parents' bed and scare them (or until you’re scarred for life).
- Fill a water gun with green baby food and spray your neighbour’s child.
