VIDEO: Has anyone spotted Slimer from Ghostbusters flying around Dublin?

How cool is this?

Here's something you don't see every day.


Slimer - that's right, the Slimer from Ghostbusters - has been spotted sliming his way around various spots in Dublin, including the GPO...

In case you don't know who or what Slimer is, then 1) what's wrong with you? And 2) he's the kind-of-slightly lovable green ghoul from the 1984 comedy classic who, well, likes to slime people.

Here, check out this brilliant Bill Murray scene from Ghostbusters to get the idea:

Slimer hasn't done much film work since Ghostbusters, mind you. We heard he auditioned for the role of Neo in The Matrix, but Keanu Reeves won out for being "considerably less slimey".


Makes sense when you think about it.

Slimer's actually in Dublin to give everyone a heads up about one of the coolest events taking place anywhere in Ireland next week.

On Wednesday 4 November and Thursday 5 November, the Jameson Cult Film Club returns to a top secret location and, in case you hadn't figured it out yet, they're showing Ghostbusters.

We can't wait for the event and you don't have to wait either, because JOE readers can come along too. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets is click here.


What's almost as cool as Slimer flying around Dublin is that there's also a genuine, real, working Ghostbusters phoneline that you can actually phone to hear Janine on reception duties. Plus, whoever leaves the best message will win tickets to the event as well.

Who you gonna call?

1800-555-623, of course.
