Bill Murray appears in bizarre Ghostbusters baseball TV commercial

May 20th, 2014 by Saxon Comments

American Minor League Baseball team the Toledo Mud Hens are to sport Ghostbusters jerseys on May 30th, as part of a special themed game – but look who’s promoting this! 

Yes in one of the strangest TV commercials of all time Dr Peter Venkman himself, Bill Murray, seems to be channeling the spirit of famed American baseball broadcaster Harry Carray with his odd performance.  Check out the video below if you’re ready to believe us.

The teams themed jerseys honor the 30th anniversary of the film, and are timely considering the death of Ghostbusters writer and star Harold Ramis.  The Mud Hens are known for their themed nights which have included a “Star Wars” night, and a “Seinfield” night.

While Murrays performance is frankly bizarre its nice to see that he’s still willing to be involved, no matter in how small a capacity, with the Ghostbusters franchise.  Perhaps he may yet return for the third movie?
