Ecto-Cooler is Back! Wait. No It Ain’t.

Nobody likes a tease. Not unless they do eventually give you the carrot. (That’s a reference to the proverbial “carrot on a stick”, not some phallic reference. Sheesh, you people and your dirty minds!) Hi-C announced that the Ecto-Cooler would be making a return just in time for the new GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE film set to open this coming weekend—only the product won’t be returning to store shelves. Huh? Hi-C said on Twitter: “Guess who escaped from the vault for an exclusive commemorative drop just in time for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, in theaters Nov. 19th? While this won’t be available for purchase, show us the [green heart emoji] @DrinkHiC & @Ghostbusters & you may get slimed! #Ghostbusters: Afterlife #EctoCooler” Now what in the blue hell does that mean?

Oh, well. There’s a cute little video that takes us back, ever so briefly, to 1989, the last time the REAL Ghostbusters were seen in theaters. Still don’t know what it has to do with not releasing Ecto-Cooler, but whatever.

The product I’d really love to see make a comeback for the new film is the Slimer Sundae from Hardee’s. Any of you try one of those back in the day?
