When some of us first heard that Karcher, (US) a global company that manufacturers leading power washers wanted to begin a partnership for marketing Ghostbusters (2016) we were understandably skeptical. After all ever since our employers invented the Proton Pack, vacuum cleaners became cool by association. The solution was there, it was going to take time to put it all together.
Naturally as we’re not the only ones with a vested interested in Ghostbusters, our associates at Sony Pictures Entertainment really liked it. Both companies came together to market Ghostbusters (2016) and Karcher (UK) pressure washers in Europe.
In the meantime we easily promoted Karcher and Ghostbusters through social media. From a “professional services” side we held off on announcing a partnership until now. Continue reading →
*edit* Matthew Jordan of Ghostbusters Wiki replied on our Facebook with the following:
There is a Diamond Select logo on the middle of the display box. However, I’d like more pictures of this too, and none are showing up online -yet-.
I can see it now, I didn’t notice DST’s logo on the box art earlier today.
Italian Ghostbusters news site GhostbustersMania (Facebook) shared the above image on their Facebook page. It appears the “Ghosts in Glowing Slime” are canisters (or Ecto Containment Units) of toy slime with a ghost inside, representative of Ghostbusters.
The term ghost is used loosely here as we could get a Stay-Puft, a Terror Dog, and even a Gozer! Naturally we get our star Slimer along with a library and a cab driver ghost.
This afternoon when I didn’t know I was working I was going through a certain popular auction site. I checked out around 55 pages for Ghostbusters merchandise. I came across an auction for a classic or vintage Ghostbusters T-Shirt (any shirt really) iron on. Continue reading →
I was checking Ghostbusters merchandise for price comparisons. While I was on Ghostbusters Store I saw the above new t-shirts. I hadn’t seen it posted or talked about by ghostheads at that time. Instead of immediately posting here I left a Facebook post with Robin Shelby. If anyone should have one of these, its definitely her. Robin Shelby “earned it.” 🙂
Each of these two Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters “donut” shirts glow in the dark. We’re not sure with Slimer why the artist didn’t just use the image of Slimer (portrayed by Robin Shelby during Ghostbusters II™) that both Sony and Krispy Kreme use on ghostbusters.com and is part of the Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters promotion until October 31, 2014.
Each t-shirt can currently be pre-ordered and will ship before or by October 27, 2014.
Our friends at Krispy Kreme have set up a Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters™ promotional site known as Krispy Skremes. We love that name and maybe wish we had come up with it in a meeting…first. Ok, we didn’t, with a little more time we might have.
Krispy Skremes is a location based site to locate your nearest Krispy Kreme. Using your “P.K.E Meter” and Google maps (Ghostbusters HQ) you can scan for escaped ghosts! Why did the ghosts escape? They’re after Krispy Kreme donuts of course!
If two kinds of official Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters donuts isn’t enough. Or you’d like something a little different in between, Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies has the solution; Ghostbusters cupcakes!
Today I made Ghostbusters Ectoplasm Filled Cupcakes with my friend Jake! I really enjoy making nerdy themed goodies and decorating them. I’m not a pro, but I love baking as a hobby. Please let me know what kind of treat you would like me to make next.
This morning Robin Shelby was at Krispy Kreme’s Burbank, CA location to hang out with California franchise members and together enjoy hopefully delicious 30th Anniversary donuts. Robin Shelby shared her album of pictures and after asking is allowing Ghostbusters Incorporated to share them. A special thanks to Robin Shelby and her husband Sean Spence.
Craig Wilson, a ghosthead took photos of the Krispy Kreme Ghostbusters box and bucket or pail, which he kindly shared with the Ghostbusters community. Special thanks to Craig Wilson and that Krispy Kreme manager.
