Thirty years on from their iconic battle on top of a Manhattan apartment building, much loved ‘heart of the Ghostbusters’ Ray Stantz has admitted that he might be the cause of Donald Trump’s unlikely triumph.
“Okay, so we were up there fighting Gozer the Gozerian,” said Stantz.
“And she says ‘Choose and die,’ and we’re like ‘what?’ but Venkman figured it, he knew that she meant we had to choose the form of our own destruction.
“Well, as I think everyone now knows, the other guys managed to keep their minds blank but, you know, dumb old Ray thought of Stay-Puft Marshmallow man and we had to kick it’s ass all the way back to the third century.”
Mr Stantz leans back in his chair and takes a drag from his cigarette.
“I never told anyone this before, but I also thought of Donald Trump. I don’t know why, the guy just kinda popped into my head.
“You understand? When Gozer the Gozerian said, you know, ‘choose the destructor and die,’ I thought of Donald Trump.
“So I guess because of me, Donald Trump is using the power of some mouldy ancient Babylonian God to bring about the destruction of humankind.”
Asked if he had an idea on how to cope with the rise of Trump, Stantz was quick to respond.
“Yeah I got an idea, we get the Ghostbusters back together, you know?”
“Why? Because we got an evil asshole in New York and who you gonna call.”
