1989 Hardees GB2 banner

I have a complete set of the battery powered sirens Hardees gave out as part of their co-promotion of Ghostbusters 2 with Coca-Cola. I’m proud of them as the sirens were quickly pulled from distribution when it was pointed out that the battery cover and the batteries themselves were a bit of a choking hazard for small kids. Having a set of them is a bit of awesome.

However, a lot of the items Hardees produced for GB2 are awfully rare. Hardees was/is by no means as ubiquitous as McDonalds or Burger King, so their GB2 swag remains rare treasure. One example would be the banners each store had to promote themselves as a Ghostbusters 2 HQ – there were produced to match the number of stores, not the number of kids coming to the stores, and so are automatically as rare as the sirens, maybe even moreso.

Linear Ranger sent in some pics of one of these banners that he owns, thanks to the manager of his local Hardees, who was kind enough to save it for them after the promotion. Thanks Ryan!
