DIRECTV has launched its “GOATbusters” national campaign featuring baseball legends Alex Rodriguez, David Ortiz, Ken Griffey Jr. and Randy Johnson, highlighting the company’s streaming product, DIRECTV STREAM.

Launching just in time for baseball season, the foursome comes together to combat supernatural forces and other would-be foes through the 2022 MLB season, just like the Ghostbusters.

The campaign builds on the first iteration of DIRECTV’s “Get Your TV Together” ad series--also from TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles--which shows how entertainment and sports come together on DIRECTV.

The new work contains nods to fan-favorite elements form the Ghostbusters movie franchise, with MLB mascots reimagined as ghosts, new baseball bat-style proton pack weaponry and the GOATs’ choice of transportation, a Ghostbusters Ecto-1 replica car.

In this :30 spot directed by Jim Jenkins of O Positive, we see GOATbusters Rodriguez, Ortiz, Griffy Jr and Johnson take on a huge MLB ghost mascot who towers over a stadium.
