Who ya gonna call?
IT was more a case of don’t cross the streams than don’t cross the tracks at Waterloo last week, as commuters were greeted with a spooky welcome to promote the new Ghostbusters movie.
The giant head of the Stay Puft marshmallow man had burst through the concourse of the station as a publicity stunt for the remake of the 1980s comedy classic, this time led by an all-female cast including Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wig and directed by Paul Feig ( Bridesmaids, Spy and The Heat).
Dozens of Surrey commuters and passers-by took the opportunity to pose for a selfie picture with the legendary character in the background.
There was lime dripping through the station and even a Ghostbusters shop, not to mention a few Ghostbusters themselves, just in case Stay Puft needed dealing with.
Stuart Williams, deputy managing director and marketing director at Sony Pictures UK, said: “We wanted to deliver more than a pure awareness outdoor campaign and give people the chance to experience Ghostbusters for themselves and be part of the excitement.”
