Ghostbusters-July16-Waterloo-(5)-web

There’s certainly something strange in the neighbourhood if your ‘hood is Waterloo – to celebrate the launch of the scarily funny reimagining of Ghostbusters, Waterloo station became an epicentre of supernatural activity overnight.

Before Stay Puft exploded through the floor of the station, and slime started trickling down the CCTV cameras, AdGates had already welcomed 350,766* lost souls into the station in the week preceding the arrival of the big marshmallow monster. That’s 10,233,328* confirmed sightings of paranormal activity per week.

According to this Screen Daily article, Ghostbusters had an opening weekend of £4.4m, which just goes to show that a lot of people ain’t afraid of no ghost.

Yahoo Movies UK shot this excellent footage of Waterloo in all its wraithlike glory.

To find out how AdGates can strike fear in the heart of every other kind of out-of-home format in the rail environment – who you gonna call? Us hopefully!
