It’s about time that the Mythbusters and the Ghostbusters take their non-existent beef to the streets. Here, the Epic Rap Battles of History team returns to its massive YouTube series and plays out the intricately layered rivalry.

Special credit goes to the Walter Peck name drop—he remains the Ghostbusters franchise’s most underrated character. But I don’t like how the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is interpreted as being from the “ghetto” and then given an aggressively stereotypical African-American rap voice when it’s likely that one of the troupe’s white guys performed the Marshmallow Man’s vocals and added effects.

In general, the notion of comedy rap videos where each lyric needs subtitles and also a diagramming visual should really be over by now. At least these guys can write well.
