For the second year in a row, Conan O’Brien is taking his show on the road to San Diego to attend Comic Con International: San Diego, otherwise known as SDCC. Last year Conan partnered with Funko, the company behind all of the Pop! Vinyl figures that have been taking the world by storm. Featuring characters from a wide variety of pop culture icons, the figures this year honoring the late night talk show host feature Conan dressed as a number of notable characters from upcoming films, including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ghostbusters, Justice League, and Suicide Squad.

Character news and speculation after the jump!

Okay, really? If you clicked on this in the hope we’d actually have a trailer for Ghostbusters 3 I pity you. Obviously you’re not really interested in Ghostbusters at all or you’d know that movie is held in pre-production hell at the whims of Bill Murray.
But I got something better, a fan-made trailer for a Ghostbuster‘s flick where they battle the boogeyman. The acting is pretty awful but I’d love to see your best Murray or Dan Akroyd impressions. I’m sure they’re pathetic no matter what you tell yourself when you’re practicing in front of the mirror. I do have to hand it to the dude playing Harold Ramis’ Egon, he’s got some serious balls to be sporting that pompadour.
So why are we sharing this? Well, apart from the acting and really sad writing, their effects and props are stellar. Costumes, PKE meters and the ECTO-1 are fantastic. If you’re an aspiring screenwriter/director and want to tackle the next Ghostbusters, who you gonna call? Umm…these kids. Sorry, that sounded a lot less lame in my head.
Watch below and take particular note of the creepy boogeyman shown for a split second at the end of the trailer. A villain worthy of your nightmares.
