Yesterday I woke up to new Ecto Cooler news. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, February 18, 2016) Last night as I was exiting the internet for the night their was some clarification and an update about the seeming evolution of Hi-C Ecto-Cooler.
The mystery can from the eBay seller naturally received attention about the auction. As I was preparing this post I saw it (the auction, not my site 😉 was trending on Facebook. Since it could be about me 😀 I saw my post among the feed. That’s cool.
Nearing bedtime the seller’s auction was back up with added information. Apparently the can belonged to a friend who use to work in a marketing company. However, not in a long time. From an outside point of view I could see why some related company might still send that person a product sample for upcoming marketing. My issue with the seller is if s/he had explained that from the beginning, sites likes mine could have talked more positively, etc about new Ecto-Cooler then speculating about how real this is.
What gave the seller credibility (at least with the item) is a source I can trust. That would be the ghosthead and Hi-C Ecto Cooler advocate who oversees Resurrect EctoCooler, (Facebook) a social media community organization to bring back Coke’s most beloved soft drink.

Resurrect EctoCooler posted the above photos sorta teasing and letting ghostheads know Tetra Pak, a “leading food processing and packaging company” is sending a sample of new Ecto Cooler. Hopefully they’ll do the same for Matt at Dinosaur Dracula and more well known Ghostbusters sites that aren’t run by me. 🙂
Now it seems the chances of Coca~Cola/Hi-C bringing back Ecto Cooler have increased. We may see it in both cans and old school boxes.
