Watch a J-pop Cover of the Ghostbusters Theme; Pray for J-pop Covers of Every Movie Theme

After suffering through the Hot Topic tedium of the new Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott cover of Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters theme last week, the music gods (ghosts?) have gifted us with a perfect palate cleanser. Sony Pictures Japan has released a cover of the theme starring comedians Tomochika, Oniyakko Tsubaki, Naomi Watanabe, and Shizuyo Tamasaki, which comes complete with its own music video. It’s all part of the Ghostbusters ad campaign, so it includes a few clips from the movie’s trailer, but really this video deserves to be treated as an art object in its own right, as a visually stunning epic about four brave heroes and the two break-dancing ghosts that tried to bring them down. We smell a franchise.
