Do you have a friend or loved one who is just about to pop? Better place your order because there is no better newborn gift than this…

Ah, the miracle of life. We live on a dying overpopulated planet and the cockroaches that we all are just keep duplicating, and duplicating with reckless abandon even though the resources that we have are getting… Wow, only two sentences in and I’m already veering to a completely different article topic. Maybe we should start over?

Ah, the miracle of life. Having a baby is usually one of the most joyous times in a person’s life. It’s about bringing another human into the world that will (hopefully) be loved, and cherished, and taught to be a great person. Cause for celebration!

When a friend or loved one has a child, it is customary to get a congratulatory gift for the occasion. And if you are a mischievious prankster troll like me, you may think of getting them this:

Wait for it…

Why you ask? Who is Vigo the Carpathian?

Vigo the Carpathian is the main villain in Ghostbusters II. The character was a brutal conquerer and powerful magician from the 1500s. Upon his death he professed “I’ll be back,” just before he was murdered.

No, not this guy…

In the modern-day events of the film, Vigo is mostly seen as a creepy lifesize portrait that resides as a feature in the Manhattan Museum of Art. The haunted painting does has some powers, and uses those to posses the museum’s curator so that he can do Vigo’s bidding. What bidding is that? That would be kidnapping a baby so that Vigo can take human form and rule again.

As I recap the plot I am reminded just how hokey the movie is, albeit enjoyable. But just because the film is a little wacky doesn’t mean that Vigo is not a great villain. Perfectly cast, costumed and painted, the image of actor Wilhelm von Homburg in the painting still scares me to this day.

Here’s a clip from the film:
