This cool vintage tee features the logo from the hit 80s comedy Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Rick Moranis. The movie was also written by Ramis and Aykroyd. Aykroyd, who had a personal interest in the supernatural, conceived Ghostbusters as a project for him and his fellow Saturday Night Live alumni John Belushi. But 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, who was sculpted by special effects artist Steve Johnson. Johnson became increasingly frustrated by the mixed feedback he recieved 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.
