Great to see Bill being so positive about Ghostbusters lately.

Excellent. But now I want to see all of the original cast's reactions. :P

I always enjoy Dan's salesman talk, hopefully he will also be involved in the pre-release marketing hype.

I can't imagine they sat down with Murray just for this one little clip.

Behind-the-scenes promo chat or audio commentary for the Bluray perhaps?

It's amusing but Murray's "it's like the original, right?" felt off. Like he's just unsure. I don't feel this clip screams original GB to me or anything, but from the clips we've seen it's at least trying. Humor is not just in your face. Maybe not subtle but it has that sarcastic tone. Still every clip makes me more interested in seeing it which is not something I can say about every movie.

Even if he is just playing along, it’s still a big deal that he’s participating. This clip and saying positive things in interviews about the movie are a 180 from what we saw years ago.

There’s a segment of the population who’s first question is about Bill Murray every time Ghostbusters is brought up. Putting this out there as a sort of stamp of approval could resonate with those people.

Given how it's edited and how marketing works, we don't know for sure his comment was a real-time reaction to the specific mini puft clip. He might have watched a wider section of the movie and they pulled the line which works best as a Murray endorsement.

Hm, that could be. A little underhanded but certainly not the worst thing ever. Just give me the equivalent of some shlubby exterminators being sarcastic and dry with their humor and wit while busting spooks. That's all I ask.
