Looking for a particular Ghostbusters TV ad

I'm trying to find a TV ad for the latest Ghostbusters movie, that featured Melissa McCarthy's character referencing the YouTube controversy. My google is failing.

Any assistance appreciated. I'm positive I saw this on TV shortly before or right after the movie released. Hope me, Metafilter.

Is it possible it wasn't a trailer, but just a clip showed during a promo segment on another show? I know the ad-lib bit you're talking about, and I've just watched a bunch of trailers, but I can't find a trailer that has it in it, just articles referencing the line.

Response by poster: Possible, but I could have sworn it was an ad. watched a ton of the ads on youtube and couldn't find it.

I can think of two instances of this in the movie (Wiig's character reading an "Ain't no bitches gonna bust no ghosts" YouTube comment, and McCarthy later saying something about how you shouldn't read comments idiots post online in the middle of the night), and I seem to remember seeing both in ads at some point, too. I can't track down any ads featuring either quote, though. (But thanks for the excuse to rewatch a bunch of ads and get my Holtzmann fix, lol!)
