‘Ghostbusters’ Theme Song to be Re-Released On Vinyl; Will Smell Like Marshmallows
To commemorate the film’s 30th anniversary, Ray Parker, Jr.’s "Ghostbusters" theme song was reissued for April’s Record Store Day on glow-in-the-dark vinyl.
On Oct. 21, the song will be re-released again, but this time it will be on 12-inch white vinyl and will smell like marshmallows.
The 12-inch record comes backed by Run-D.M.C.’s lesser-known “Ghostbusters Rap”. The whole package will include two 12-inch x 12-inch 3D lenticular stills and one 12-inch x 12-inch 3D motion lenticular still, each will depict the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man terrorizing downtown New York. The inner jacket will be texturized to feel like actual marshmallow, and will include a photo collage of the Ghostbusters and Stay Puft "meeting" for the first time. Each of the 3,000 copies will also come with a numbered certificate of authenticity and a six-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figurine.
The whole thing will run you $58.98 and can be pre-ordered through the online Ghostbusters Store (which I just learned was a thing).
Let's relive the song in all of its glory, shall we?
