I'm pretty sure Stay Puft Marshmallows do not actually exist. However, if they did, a giant avatar of an ancient god taking the form of your product's mascot and laying waste to a city block would indeed be possibly the greatest product placement imaginable.

Is it still product placement if the product doesn't actually exist?
I a sad way no, since there is no Stay Puft Marshmallow company(even if you wish there was right now)
However this did spawn some toys by kenner, so this is more of a product introduction along with the placement so it works.
as a kid seeing this in the theater for the first time, i immediately thought it was ET when you see his face in between the buildings.
The last scene would have bumped the movie to a hard R.

My brother had a GIANT painting of this over his bed that my aunt did for him. I still have no idea why.
"Nobody steps on a church in my town!" remains one of my favorite lines from this movie. Probably because Venkman sounds pretty hard when he says it, like, That's it, I'm going to fuck you right up. As challenges go, it's a good one.
I loved that flick.
"Sorry Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought."
