See 'Ghostbusters' director Paul Feig get slimed

Director of the "Ghostbusters" reboot gets covered in ectoplasm while sitting in the infamous red chair on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show." Somebody save some for Egon.

Whether you can't wait to see the new "Ghostbusters" movie or you've spent an inordinate amount of time disliking the movie's trailer on YouTube, you'll want to check out this clip from the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show."

The British talk show gathered together the four female leads of the "Ghostbusters" reboot, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Norton had a special surprise in store for them during the show's infamous "Red Chair Story" segment, in which members of the audience sit down to tell an interesting story before being booted off in some unceremonious fashion.

This time, the lucky folks who sat down in the chair got slimed after finishing their story, and Norton surprised the actors with a special appearance by "Ghostbusters" director Paul Feig, who also wrote the new movie with "Parks and Recreation" and "The Heat" screenwriter Katie Dippold.

In the clip posted Friday, Feig tells Norton and his guests that he's willing to get slimed if McCarthy and Wiig sing the female folk cover of the iconic "Ghostbusters" theme song that they created while making the movie. "Since we're all in the business of ruining men's childhoods," he added.

The entire episode is scheduled to air tonight in Great Britain on BBC One and hopefully sometime soon on BBC America. "Ghostbusters" opens worldwide in July.
