Debuting at number 68 on June 16, , the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot on August 11, , staying there for three weeks, and at number two on the UK Singles Chart on September 16, , staying there for three weeks. According to Parker, he was approached by the film's producers to create a theme song for the film, though he only had a few days to do so and the film's title seemed impossible to include in any lyrics. However, when watching television late at night, Parker saw a cheap commercial for a local service that reminded him that the film had a similar commercial featured for the fictional business. Lindsey Buckingham claims to have been approached to write the Ghostbusters theme based on his successful contribution to Harold Ramis's National Lampoon's Vacation the song " Holiday Road ". He turned down the opportunity as he did not want to be known as a soundtrack artist. The music video for the song was directed by Ivan Reitman , the same director as the Ghostbusters film, and produced by Jeffrey Abelson. It features a young woman, played by actress Cindy Harrell,   who is haunted by a ghost portrayed by Parker, roaming a nearly all-black house interior with vibrant neon designs outlining the sparse architectural and industrial features until the woman finally calls the service. Chase appears again after Garr, but chokes on his cigarette when he tries to exclaim "Ghostbusters! The video concludes with Parker and the stars of the film, in full Ghostbuster costume, dancing down the streets of New York City. The crew closed down Times Square to film the scene, although a sizable crowd can still be seen in the background.
