Not only are we not afraid of no ghosts, we’re also far from fearful when it comes to funked-up tunes celebrating the forthcoming, female-led Ghostbusters flick. The same of which can be said for Portland, Oregon YouTubers The Doubleclicks, whose latest tackling of an iconic tune is sure to Uptown Funk you up.
You may remember The Doubleclicks from their fantastic cello cover of the Doctor Who theme song. But in this latest video of theirs, a slightly more disco-centric, funked-up take on cover songs takes center stage, as the Ghostbusters’ theme is mashed-up with the likes of Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” perhaps the earwormiest song of the year thus far (which is perfect, considering how slippery and evasive those wee tricky ghosts can be).
“We got all excited about the female-led Ghostbusters movie. (And NOTHING will squash our enthusiasm),” so, Angela of The Doubleclicks explained, “we arranged the song for vocals and bass,” with a resulting super-funkified theme. Girl Ghostbusters can no doubt get down, and we’re fairly certain this adorable ditty will get them ripe and ready to save the neighborhood from those pesky paranormals.
So put on your night vision goggles, grab the closest paranormal extermination tools, and start gettin’ down to the groove like you’re Slimer and the whole of the Sedgewick Hotel is your dance party playground. You can also download the tune for free on their Bandcamp page.
