Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Takes Over London For 'Ghostbusters'

Someone pulled a Ray Stantz and conjured a previously innocuous image into one of the most fearsome villains in all of comedy: The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
“Ghostbusters” returns to the big screen in the form of a new iteration featuring Paul Feig behind the camera and the likes of Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy donning the headline roles.
And, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the movies isn’t going to be the complete mess many thought it might be following the movie’s various trailers.
And a movie of this size is bound to have some mighty inventive marketing ploys taking over parts of the world.
As we found this week, one of the most astounding is what is taking place in London’s Waterloo station.
As you can see from the cavalcade of social media posts — London is in trouble.

As the Londonist notes, there are a few more brilliant touches around the station, which includes some slime dripping from the ceiling and a nearby shop that caters to every geeky Ghostbusters whim.
Until we get an Ecto-1 or proton pack to call our own, activations like these will have to suffice in calming our inner nerd until the movie opens this weekend.
