Ghostbusters Hospital Visit refers to a surprise visit from the cast of Ghostbusters (2016) to a children's hospital. The visit was praised, criticized, and parodied by various circles around the internet.


On August 1st, 2015, the lead cast of the Ghostbusters reboot (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones) made a surprise visit to the Floating Hospital for Children at a Tufts Medical Center facility in Massachusetts.[1] While some outlets applauded the initiative, others criticized the effort as being a tasteless way to promote the movie over cheering up the young patients.


On August 2nd, a 4Chan thread on /tv/ was made to mock the visit[2], featuring the above image with many linking the Ghostbusters visiting a hospital with dying children to 'Spawn Camping'. The thread also inspired the following greentext story:

>be 8
>terminal brain cancer
>make a wish ask me what my dream is
>I want to meet my favourite ghostbuster
>big day comes
>can't wait to meet Bill Murray
>"We managed to get all four of them to come anon, isn't that great?"
>4? But Harold Ramis is dead.
>The door opens and I hear shrill laughter and mumbled ebonics
>Four women shamble in to the room wearing cheap cosplay outfits.
>The largest, a barely human looking sheboon swaggers over to me looking like she thinks she's made my day
>"Who ya gun call lil guy?"
>The rest of them roar with laughter
>I hear a voice screaming "Ay gurls, lemme holla at ya"
>A strange negro runs in to my room and starts whooping.
>The 4 women begin to whoop along with him and chant "PHOTO OP, PHOTO OP"
>A camera flashes as I drift in to the abyss

Following this, a number of photoshops of the various images were created. A WebM file containing many of the photoshops was posted on /tv/ sometime after that, and said video was later mirrored to YouTube.

I can kinda see why people might find this a tad…offputting.

I mean, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt showed up at the hospital my brother works at as Captain America and Starlord, but at least those movies had already come out, y’know? They were just cheering up the kids, not…plugging their movies.
