Ghostbusters Challenge/JavaScript Challenge


I thought of this stupid little snippet of JS that has been cracking me up all day. I wanted to create a snippet of JS code that would emulate the line from the Ghostbusters theme song: "If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters"

So this is what I came up with:

let somethingStrange = 1;
let neighborhood = 1;

function whoYouGonnaCall() {
if (somethingStrange === neighborhood) {
whoYouGonnaCall = 'Gohstbusters';
} else {
console.log('I ain\'t afraid of no ghost');


This prints Ghostbusters to the console.

I thought this would be a great learning exercise for me and others to learn something from other JS devs. I know there are more experienced JS devs out there who can put together a more creative JS snippet that expresses this same line in a different way, and I would love if you would take a crack at it.

Please show us how you would use JS to express:
"If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Gostbusters"

Rules are:
1.) it has to work.
2.) it would be great if you explained why you chose the snippet you chose
3.) Please share an explanation of it's result.
