Ghostbusters – but with Mr Blobby instead of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man
We’re eternally grateful to the very talented Matt Highton for improving our internet experience with his inventive and very funny edits, such as opening credits of iconic shows recreated using stock footage.
For example, here’s his version of the Buffy credits.

His latest reimagining sees what might have happened in that memorable scene in the original Ghostbusters film, had Ray thought of Mr Blobby instead of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
Here’s how people reacted when the video landed on Twitter.
The most painful element of this is I recognise specific bits of blobby audio. The bit where he goes "blobby blobby blobby buh-blobby" is seared into my memory. https://t.co/absW1rBeIQ

This is perfection.

This is false from Ray. Blobby has only ever been about destruction. Blobby in destruction manifest. https://t.co/f6A7RBT6by

I predict the Americans will *totally* not get this, but in the UK it works better than the original! https://t.co/Ngbtwa84v2

Of course, the presence of Blobby in the Ghostbusters universe makes one other thing inevitable.
"Hello? Who is this?"
