This week belongs to ghosts busted and unbusted alike, as Paul Feig's widely discussed Ghostbusters reboot is finally set to invade theaters Friday. With the relatively strong reviews already piling up, the haters have turned to other tactics in a futile attempt to halt the film's success. But we aren't here to talk about the haters. That's boring. Instead, we're here to talk about an awesome weather reporter who effortlessly squeezed in 22 Ghostbusters puns during a 60-second forecast recently.
Within the first 15 seconds alone, viral video hero/weather reporter Sian Welby managed to mention Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and the importance of not crossing one's streams. Though the full scope of Welby's punthusiasm is slightly difficult to catch on first viewing, she was kind enough to tweet the total tally so there's no confusion on this pop culture feat:
Amazing. Of course, as anyone with regular internet access can attest, the hype surrounding Feig's Ghostbusters entry is damn near overwhelming. Speaking with Collider earlier this month, the Bridesmaids director poured gasoline on the hype fire by revealing that a seemingly dope extended cut of the film was also on the way.
"We generate a lot of stuff, and I always wanna have all the underpinnings of a big, emotional story, and because of that, it just added a lot of extra scenes that, as you're going through, you know you have to make a lot of choices because I knew I had to bring this down under two hours," Feig said. "You just start weeding and saying, 'What do people want to delve deeper into and what do we wanna just kind of skirt through and get to the fun parts?'" Hint: Every part is a fun part, Paul.
