The Ghostbusters, Gangnam-Style

Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ray Parker, Jr., Dan Akroyd, and Ernie Hudson in the video for "Ghostbusters"

Is there any song that sounds catchier right now than the global smash hit “Gangnam Style” by South Korean pop star Psy? How about the Ghostbusters theme song? Ray Parker, Jr.’s 1984 hit was No. 1 for three weeks and has been rattling around in some of our heads ever since. And it happens to go pretty well with the Psy sensation, as the video below rather delightfully proves.

I’m generally against the ever-percolating Ghostbusters 3, but I might change my tune if the producers brought Psy and Ray Parker, Jr. together for real. In the meantime, enjoy.
