Viral Video: Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters!
Well, at least that’s who the New York Public Library called to help save them from budget cuts.
It’s stuff like this that brightens our day just a little bit – when people stop being so serious, just for a few minutes, and have some good ol’ fun. This is when creativity flourishes – and when a day spent at the library turns into one you may never forget.
The New York Public Library is in trouble – it’s facing a budget cut of close to $37 million. In an effort to raise funds and support for the famous institution, the library started the Don’t Close the Book campaign to keep its best branches and services alive. But, they needed more help.
So, who did they call? Ghostbusters!
Watch above as the popular New York improv group, Improv Everywhere, joins forces with the library to scare away ghosts and bring laughter to library patrons. What a creative and awesome way to remind us all that a day without the New York Public Library would be a scary one.
Man, what we would’ve done to be there! (P.S. we’re sorry if the Ghostbusters theme song gets stuck in your head all day!). (New York Times)
