Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig Do a Folk Lady Cover of the Ghostbusters Theme to Crush the Patriarchy

No doubt the burden of being a professionally funny woman is that a lot of people (yes, us) are going to ask you to be funny. This is the cross that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon will have to bear over the next month as they make the press rounds for the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, which premieres July 15. On the Graham Norton Show, director Paul Feig says that McCarthy and Wiig had this way to “really enrage men” with a “folk lady version” of the Ghostbusters theme song. In exchange for this lovely little bit, Feig would get slimed. Everybody wins!
