The new Ghostbusters, like Ray Parker Jr., ain’t afraid of no ghosts.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones paid homage to Parker’s original Ghostbusters theme song for the by recording their own vocal track that ranges from scary to Irish to silent.

McKinnon runs through myriad accents for her parts, while McCarthy mostly acts as if a specter is staring at her while she tries to convince us she’s not scared. Wiig mostly mimes out the lyrics in a killer charades performance.
