Giant Marshmallow Man – level 2

15-07-2016 07:00

A giant marshmallow is bursting its way through the floor of a London station. There is also green slime hanging from the ceiling. All of this is to promote the new Ghostbusters movie.

Some people got a picture of the Marshmallow Man, some took pictures with him, and some were just a little too shocked.

The Marshmallow Man is 2.9 metres high and 2.8 metres wide.

Difficult words: burst (break open), slime (a thick and slippery liquid, something a little like mud), promote (advertise, make more popular).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
