Convicts Zap Gruesome Viruses In Ghostbusters COVID Clip

This ‘Ghostbusters’-themed video was made by several inmates at a Russian prison showing them bopping in a playing field and zapping gruesome green viruses in the courtyard.

The fun video, which also shows the inmates displaying some fancy footwork to the famous Ray Parker Jr ‘Ghostbusters’ theme song, was filmed at Prison 2 in the city of Yekaterinburg in the western Russian region of Sverdlovsk Oblast.

According to local media, the video was shot and edited by several unnamed convicts who attend a filmmaking class in the correctional facility.

In the footage, the inmates are seen ‘suiting up’ in full PPE before showing off their dance skills on a playing field.

The ‘virus busters’ use sanitizer in the form of the Ghostbusters’ proton packs to zap animated green viruses floating around the prison grounds.

At one point, the convicts even managed to save a team of prison guards from one particularly evasive green bug.

The video ends with them bombing a huddle of viruses before walking off into the distance.
