Celebrities visiting a hospital has been a cool thing to do for a while now: Christian Bale and Chris Pratt have been known to stop by to cheer up kids. The latest feel-good story comes with the new cast of Ghostbusters, who stopped by Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston yesterday.

The new Ghostbusters film is currently shooting in Boston, and Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones dropped by in full costume to bring some cheer to children at the hospital. One of the really interesting things about these pictures is those horizontal bars: they’re reflective! It’ll be interesting to see if that plays a part in the film.

...why?

I mean, just from a practical standpoint, the film isn’t out yet, the promotion for it has barely begun and the children in this hospital are hardly going to have been stalking Paul Feig’s twitter account for cast photos, so how exactly are the children supposed to relate to or be excited by four random people turning up and saying they’re Ghostbusters, despite not bearing any resemblance to any pop culture representation of the Ghostbusters that those children will have been exposed to. It’s not like Chris Evans or Robert Downey Jr. showing up after their films are out as recognisable characters.

Don’t get me wrong, visiting sick children is a worthy activity, I just don’t see the point in them doing it in costume aside from generating publicity shots. “Hey kids, we’re the Ghostbusters” “No you’re not” “Well we will be, at some point next year, in a film you’re probably not going to see” “Um...ok”
