Imagine calling the Ghostbusters during the coronavirus pandemic. I’m willing to bet your call would go straight to voicemail. Just like the call, I attempted to make too my favorite Mexican restaurant.
I wonder what would the Ghostbusters outgoing voicemail message sound like during the coronavirus pandemic? Maybe something like this: sorry, but the Ghostbusters are not in right now because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, we will return as soon there is an all-clear from the government. In the event you see a real-life ghost or that gecko from those Geico commercials, we recommend you run in the other direction. Thanks for calling the Ghostbusters where no problem is unsolvable except during the era of social distancing.
As it turns out the highly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife is biting the proverbial coronavirus dust as Sony Pictures announced it was being pushed back from this summer to March of 2021.
