To the not insignificant portion of Topless Roboteers who hate the rising popularity of nerd burlesque — this isn’t going to help. Epic Win burlesque — the troop that did that disturbing Batman burlesque show from a while back (disturbing in that there was a sexy reenactment of Barbara Gordon’s paralyzation at the hands of the Joker from The Killing Joke) did a Ghostbusters-themed burlesque show a little over a week ago. And while that meant a sexy Janine (awesome), a sexy Gozer (fine), and a sexy Dana in Gatekeeper dress (also fine), there was also… a “sexy” Slimer.
Yes, I am cruel enough to post a video of sexy Slimer shaking her ectoplasm and force you to head over to Asylum for pics of the other girls, including Sexy Stay-Puft. You’ll never look at the scene where the Ghostbusters are covered in sticky white goo the same way ever again. Thanks to Mr. Poopoopachu for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
