'Ghostbusters' release will smell like marshmallows

Story highlights

  • A limited edition vinyl of "The Ghostbusters" theme will have a scented package
  • The collectible's item will smell like marshmallows, in honor of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man
  • The anniversary of "Ghostbusters" comes alongside news of a new installment
The 30th anniversary of "The Ghostbusters" just became sweeter.
In honor of the movie's landmark anniversary this past June, Legacy Recordings is releasing a limited edition vinyl of Ray Parker Jr.'s theme song that comes wrapped in a marshmallow-scented jacket.
Yes, you might still have the "Ghostbusters" soundtrack on a cassette somewhere, but does it smell like marshmallows? That's the important question.
(Obviously, the sugar-scented product is to jog your visual memory of the adorable-but-terrifying Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.)
For those who can't resist the call of a collectible's item that smells like candy, they'll also get Run-DMC's "Ghostbusters" rap on the 12" single.
With a new, rebooted "Ghostbusters" movie on the way, it'll be interesting to see whether either of those classic tracks makes it in to writer/director Paul Feig's new film.
The "Bridesmaids" helmer announced last week that he was working on a third "Ghostbusters" installment that would include some "hilarious women," and confirmed that the project won't be a sequel.
"My favorite thing to do is work with funny women. I was like, what if it was an all-female cast? If they were all women? Suddenly, my mind kind of exploded: that would be really fun," Feig told Entertainment Weekly after his announcement. "And then I thought, well, what if we just make it new? It's not coming into the world that existed before. ... I wanted to come into our world where there's talk of ghosts but they're not really credible, and so what would happen in our world if this happened today?"
