This awesome vintage shirt features the logo from the hit 80s comedy Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Rick Moranis. The shirt reads "Back off man, I'm a ghostbuster," in reference to a line spoken by Murray's character Peter Venkman, where he says, "Back off man, I'm a scientist". The movie was written by Ramis and Aykroyd, who had a personal interest in the supernatural. Aykroyd originally conceived Ghostbusters as a project for him and his fellow Saturday Night Live alumni John Belushi. After Belushi's death, Aykroyd was paired with Ramis and the two rewrote the story.
Ghostbusters was notable for being the first comedy film to employ expensive and complex visual effects.One of the most iconic ghost characters to appear in the move was Slimer. Special effects artist Steve Johnson was hired to sculpt and design the mischievous ghost but he became frustrated when he received a lot of mixed feedback on the design. The night before the project was due Johnson learned that Slimer was intended by the writers to be an homage to Belushi's likeness. With that information, Johnson took at least three grams of cocaine, surrounded himself with Belushi's headshots, and worked through the night. He even claimed that the ghost of John Belushi appeared to him to give him encouragement.
