Ghostbusters: the afterlife finally premiered last Friday, raising over $ 44 million in its first weekend, far more than critics and his studio, Sony, had predicted. This does not mean that the film is better than what the reviews say, sure, but that’s not why I brought you here today. We have to talk about a certain set of toys… And above all their packaging.

This pack of two figures contains a big spoiler for the end of Ghostbusters: the afterlife, so be warned. However, if you are worried about being spoiled, these toys are already in store, so stay out of Target or watch the movie ASAP.

The family that breaks up together!

If you haven’t watched the movie and don’t mind being spoiled, the Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) figure is indeed packed next to the ghost of her grandfather Egon Spengler (the late Harold Ramis, recreated in CG) who arrives at the end of the film to lend a helping hand to his undead Ghostbusters companions to defeat… you can probably guess who. This raises all kinds of troubling questions about the eschatology of the Ghostbusters universe, but the infinitely more troubling idea is the suggestion that the Spengler family go their separate ways, as the verb “bust” has multiple meanings and the former on the Urban dictionary is extremely inappropriate for a father-granddaughter duo.

Obviously, toy maker Hasbro means “the family that ghostbusts together ”, but you don’t have to have your mind firmly stuck in the gutter to be taken aback after reading the line. Certainly, someone in the massive line of people who were needed to get that box of toys off the store shelves would have said, “Uh, you know bust also means ‘to orgasm’, right? not ? There are the people who wrote the copy of the package, the designers who had to incorporate the text on the package, the marketing people who had to look at both the copy and the design of the final package. , then whatever the leaders needed to approve it. It’s a parcel people, and you tell me that nobody thought, “This force be misinterpreted, given that half of the porn on the internet seems to be about incest scenarios these days and also ghost hunters has already canonically specified that bustin ‘makes people feel good. Apparently not.

Ghostbusters: the afterlife is currently in theaters.
