That One Guy said:I thought of another alternative gag for the second one:
after a few seconds of silence on the tape...we hear Bugs Bunny saying "Eh...what's up, doc?"

The kid from the sixth sense "I see dead people".
coinilius said:I think the Sixth Sense quote could really work - although what about just having someone yelling 'BOO!' as the sound on the tape? Short, simple, has the 'gotcha' moment that is intended.
addiesin said:The boo box from Hook?
'Hook' is too obscure IMO but I must re-watch it sometime.
Luckily using a couple of bits from the outtakes real, some re-grading and a little SoundFX replacement I could get rid of it. I want to remove all pop-culture references like this, unless they are...
A: 100% not removable for continuity reasons (Such as the "ghost" recording I'm trying to re-dub), or...
B: Actually a proper joke that is structured and integrated into the character/plot (Such as the "ghost" recording)
coinilius said:Technically, the ghost recording originally isn't a pop culture reference... you've turned it into a pop culture reference through re-dubbing!
Zamros said:You've called it Ghostbusters 3, are you planning on integrating anything from the previous 2 films into this? Would you make this into more of a sequel/soft-reboot as opposed to just a remake?
addiesin said:I just don't find Rick rolling that funny, it's a nine year old internet joke at this point and isn't really connected to anything in the movie.
vernequeneto said:"Here's Johnny!" from The Shinning would be nice too
TM2YC said:I already discounted that because it's a reference to something that was already a reference from a movie... which is getting a bit meta. However, thinking about it maybe one of the weird lines between Jack, the bartender or the Grady could work?
