Updated with an extended version of the spot: Some famous ride are crashing the Golden Globes this year. Back in November, a few spotters were buzzing that filming was taking place on the streets of Los Angeles with a very familiar 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance and its distinctive siren. And now, the reason for the mystery appearance of the Ghostbusters‘ Ecto-1 is revealed! As part of its new “famous rides” campaign, Walmart is rolling out a new series of TV spots to promote its grocery pickup service.
Joining the Ecto-1 is an all-star lineup of star cars from multiple studios, including the DMC-12 Delorean Time Machine from Back to the Future, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the Wagon Queen Family Truckster from National Lampoon’s Vacation, the Mutt Cutts Shaggin’ Wagon from Dumb and Dumber, Transformers’ Bumblebee, Scooby-Doo‘s Mystery Machine, a Jurassic Park Ford Explorer (complete with baby Raptors), the Batmobile from Justice League, Lightning McQueen from Disney•Pixar’s Cars, the Flintstones’ Flint-Mobile, Disney’s Cinderella’s Carriage and a pretty cool Easter Egg as well.
There’s a few different versions of the spot, but the extended, 1:31 version is the best. Watch for the very last vehicle to turn into the Walmart parking lot at the end—that’s Walmart founder Sam Walton’s iconic 1979 Ford F-150 Custom pick-up truck—a truck so loved that Mattel immortalized it as a Hot Wheels vehicle that’s been reissued several times over the years.
