Do Not Do This at Home (Or in the Library Either!)

"Ghostbusters" Scene (Sort of) Reenacted at New York Landmark

New York Public Library visitors got quite the surprise when comedy troupe, Improv Everywhere, dressed up as the "Ghostbusters" gang and reenacted a scene from the famed movie about a trio of down-on-their-luck guys who turn to supernatural-seeking in order to make some money. Check out the clip below:

The pranksters were easily recognizable in their specter-exterminating gear in the hallowed literary halls of the Library's Rose Main Reading Room, chasing around actors draped in Halloween-costumey white sheets. Observers' expressions -- those who dared to peek up from their books and laptops -- ranged from giddily amused to frightened to the typical New York "seen it all" blase.

And let's be honest: This is just a video of four guys in pajamas chasing around a couple of guys wearing sheets while a knockoff version of Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters" theme plays in the background. Pure cheese.

Face it: Everyone is just plain better off on a Ghost Hunters of Asheville tour!
