Have You Seen This? Ghostbusters proton packs vs Luke Skywalker
The internet once again delivers an amazing movie mashup, this time with scenes from Ghostbusters and Return of the Jedi. - photo by Martha Ostergar
THE SEDGWICK HOTEL Sometimes a movie mashup video is so simple and elegant, it makes you angry because you didnt think of it yourself, especially when the movies involved are two staples from your childhood.

YouTube user and childrens musician, Mike Phirman, has angered me thus after I watched a video he posted recently. Its a flawless mashup of a scene in the Sedgewick Hotel from Ghostbusters with one of the final scenes on the Death Star in Return of the Jedi.

You guessed it, the proton stream from the proton packs of Egon, Ray and Venkman become Emperor Palpatines crazy Force lightning that hes using to zap Lukes face off (figuratively). I mean, I aint afraid of no ghost, but a hearty no thank you for Force lightning.

The scene is cut together perfectly, including a like of wryly delivered dialogue from Bill Murray that ends the 26-second video with an apt joke for the mashup.

As an extra treat, please enjoy Ray Parker Jrs original video of the Ghostbusters theme song. If youve seen it before, it is better than you remember with inexplicable celebrity cameos. And if is this your first time watching it, youre welcome.
