TriviaEdit

  • The marshmallows that rained down on Central Park West were two hundred pounds of shaving cream released by Chuck Gaspar's physical effects team from a giant plastic bag attached to a crane. It was mixed in 500 gallon batches. [1] [2]
  • The explosion was reshot several times. Each time, the explosion was toned down. The final explosion was still big enough that no one should have survived it in realistic terms (but that was part of the joke). [3]

Michael Gross says: "We reshot the final explosion several times, toning it down each time because it was just too big. It's still too big, actually. In reality, nothing on the rooftop could have survived that explosion. But I guess if an audience can believe a hundred-foot marshmallow man, they can accept an oversized explosion."
