While most artists who contributed to the new Ghostbusters soundtrack were content to let the actors handle all the fighting, 5 Seconds of Summer want a turn at taking out some ghosts. The band released its music video for “Girls Talk Boys” today (July 21) and in it they get to tussling with some spooky monsters.
The Australian band contributed their upbeat pop/rock track to the movie’s soundtrack, and for the video they become a slightly homemade version of Ghostbusters. The video cuts between the guys walking eerie corridors and busting through doors to clips from the movie.
The villains 5 Seconds of Summer fight are more of the dollar store Halloween mask variety. Add to that cheesy graphics like “Pow” to add emphasis to the group’s masterful skills and viewers are left with a trumped up version of a homemade movie. But it’s all in good fun.
Ghostbusters hit theaters July 15th.
