Remembering Harold Ramis

Movie fans are mourning the loss of a true comedic genius, the late Harold Ramis. The list of films Ramis either wrote, directed or acted in is legendary.  Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Meatballs and, of course, his classic role as Egon Spangler in Ghostbusters.  As the tributes poor in from his friends and colleagues, check out this fantastic story from a California comedian named Jerry Brandt.

“When I was 8 years old, my mom rented Ghostbusters for a friend and I to watch during a sleepover. My imagination was so captured that, the next morning, I noticed the marshmallows in my cereal and decided to reenact the Stay-Puff Marshmallow scene.

My friend and I built the marshmallow man, placed him on a paper towel, then lit him up using a match. This brilliant plan resulted in the paper towel catching fire, being dropped on the carpet and immediately catching that on fire. Luckily a glass of water was close at hand and I doused the fire before anything besides the living room carpet was damaged.

All of this is to say that Harold Ramis’ movies inspired my imagination and creativity (if not my common sense) from a young age and I am saddened to hear about his passing. Thanks for all the memories Mr. Ramis, you will be missed.”
