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.”
