Hi-C Ecto Cooler Could Be Making A Comeback!

The 2010s are the new '90s, what with all the TV reunions and series reboots/revivals, and '90s movies being rereleased in cinemas for new (and old) generations to enjoy.


I ain't afraid of no fizz!

And with all the '90s nostalgia brimming on the Internet, it was only a matter of time until classic '90s food and drink items returned to grocery shelves. First, Surge made a highly-anticipated comeback in 2014, selling out on Amazon almost immediately and causing the Internet lost its mind that a drink from people's childhoods was resurfacing all these years later.

That's why the possible revival of Hi-C's hugely popular Ecto Cooler is driving millennials wild. Already a Facebook trending topic, the Twitter account Resurrect EctoCooler dropped a bombshell for fans of tasty green drinks everywhere!:


Created as a tie-in for the Ghostbusters franchise, the drink's timing for this revival and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot featuring an all-female team of Ghost Busters is quite interesting.

There's now a can of Ecto Cooler available for auction on eBay, with the drink currently going for a whopping $233.50 (at time of posting)!

As of right now, it seems to only be available via eBay, but with all the hullabaloo spreading from a can being sold on eBay, it's only a matter of time before we see the tasty drink on shelves once again. I mean, Coca-Cola did reregister Ecto Cooler's trademark in September 2015, after all!

Let's hope this time, it's released in the UK! In other news, Twinkies are finally available in the UK!

Theme song lyrics to the UK version of Fun House, via Game Shows Wiki:

It's Wacky!
It's Fun!
It's Cr-a-a-a-zy!
It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,
It's a race,
It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!

Dan Aykroyd Reveals '#Ghostbusters 3' is in the Works! | #Ghostbusters3 | #GhostbustersIII

Two years after the all-female reboot of the beloved 1980s franchise arrived, original star Dan Aykroyd is now promising that a true Ghostbusters 3, starring the three surviving OG ‘busters, is on its way. Many thought the death of Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler, in 2014 had put paid to a proper reunion, but Aykroyd’s comments suggest that we can look forward to him teaming up with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson in the near future.


While speaking on The Big Interview With Dan Rather, the man fans know as Dr. Ray Stantz, the heart of the Ghostbusters agreed with Rather’s wording that he was talking about making a “full-blown third Ghostbusters,” with an unknown writer already currently working on the script. Obviously, Aykroyd wouldn’t let on to anything about story details, but he did tease that it’ll try and recapture what worked so well about the original films while giving it a “21st century” twist.

“I think we got a story that’s gonna work. It’s being written by a really goo…
