Movie fans remember the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man as the humungous paranormal squishy villain who tried to destroy the big apple near the end of the original “Ghostbusters” in 1984.


With its signature white sailor cap and blue collar, Mr. Stay Puft is first seen in advertisements as the cheerful mascot of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Corporation. However, after an evil Sumerian god manifests as a menacing 100-foot-tall version of Mr. Stay Puft, well, chaos ensues.


In the latest trailer, Rudd who played the character named Mr. Grooberson, browses a grocery store’s frozen section. Following grabbing a pint of ice cream, Rudd hears a woman scream from a distance.

Rudd becomes distracted in another aisle by a bustling bag of marshmallows on a shelf. He observes suspiciously as a mini-Mr. Stay Puft bursts through the bag and gives him a sweet smile. However, when Rudd reaches out to say hello, the little monster takes a bite at his finger.

Eventually, a gang of tiny marshmallow men are seen running wild in the grocery. Although they are much smaller than the original Mr. Stay Puft, these little mallows share his taste for chaos.
