GBNJ (Bad) Advertising Department

Written By Richard Roy, Would Be Commercial Artist

Pretty recently (as in today) we came across through social media (Facebook if you were going to wonder) one of those links to a social media type site, (thanks to Ghostbusters UK colleague Amanda) that featured stock photos meant for advertising…something. The writer felt those 50 ads could never be used. Anyone could see (even cybernetic movie stars) they were basically pointless. One has a description dealing with ghosts cheeseburgers. I thought that might be fun to use. I brought it to Tom Gebhardt‘s attention. If you’ve seen any of  GBNJ’s social media attention, it made sense.

That was basically it until around lunch time. Under the same post, (Ghostbusters UK colleague Alexander) posted a few links to “bizarre stock photos” that come from Vision Advertising‘s web site. They didn’t create them. Now we can’t get sued. Some are certainly worse or cheesy than others. I came across one that I thought might temporarily work for our totally FREE on-line advertising.

Please all give a huge warm welcome to legend Peter Mosen! (IMDB) Peter has built four Ghostbuster vehicles since the release of Ghostbusters. A 1966 Cadillac Ambulance, (ECTO 1 N.Y. license plate) and an actual 1959 Cadillac Ambulance. (Ecto 1 CA. & N.Y. plates) His 1966 Cadillac Ambulance (ECTO 1A CA. plate, vehicle now somewhere in Argentina) was reworked on. Peter’s fourth and present ECTO, a 2000 Chevy Impala (ECTO 1A N.Y. plates).

Three of these have been used to promote the GHOSTBUSTERS™ franchise for Columbia Pictures, a Sony Pictures company for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. Peter Mosen has won awards for over 22 Costume competitions since 1978, including Best Villian in the ReCreation Class for his Klingon Warrior at the 1984 World Sci-Fi Con in Los Angeles. Others include C3PO & R2D2, Cylon & Daggit, Darth Vader and Alien.

On Sept. 30, 1987, The Entertainment Department at Universal Studios Tour awarded Peter the “Rookie Of The Year” status for their Character Strollers.

In Ghostbusters II (1989), Peter appears as the date of the Slimed Restaurant Patron played by Judy Ovitz. Peter was a Ghostbusters superfan who used to do promotional work as a Ghostbuster, complete with his own Ecto-1 replica, for Columbia Pictures and NOW Comics back in the 1980s. He was profiled in The Real Ghostbusters Magazine, Fall 1990 issue.

Peter Mosen is the Godfather of Ghostbusters props!

This is an honor and a privilege to have him at our GBNJ table at Expo Martial Arts Comic Con 9.
