It's amusing but Murray's "it's like the original, right?" felt off. Like he's just unsure. I don't feel this clip screams original GB to me or anything, but from the clips we've seen it's at least trying. Humor is not just in your face. Maybe not subtle but it has that sarcastic tone. Still every clip makes me more interested in seeing it which is not something I can say about every movie.

Even if he is just playing along, it’s still a big deal that he’s participating. This clip and saying positive things in interviews about the movie are a 180 from what we saw years ago.

There’s a segment of the population who’s first question is about Bill Murray every time Ghostbusters is brought up. Putting this out there as a sort of stamp of approval could resonate with those people.

Given how it's edited and how marketing works, we don't know for sure his comment was a real-time reaction to the specific mini puft clip. He might have watched a wider section of the movie and they pulled the line which works best as a Murray endorsement.

I feel like it was the feud with Harold Ramis that made Murray so coy about Ghostbusters for all that time. Unfortunately that was just too sad and ugly for either of them or anyone associated with them to talk about publicly. But reading about the feud now, and how it didn't end until right before Ramis died, it seems clear this would've been the biggest impediment to Murray doing another Ghostbusters.

Ramis and Bill Murray had been friends and collaborators since the ’70s and worked on Caddyshack, Meatballs, and Ghostbusters together, but their friendship fell apart on the set of Groundhog Day. Star Murray and director Ramis had such intense creative disagreements that one day Ramis grabbed Murray by the shirt collar and threw him against a wall. After that, Murray didn’t speak to Ramis for over 20 years. Stiel says her father “did his best to be diplomatic about the whole thing” and “tried not to take it personally” since Murray had been going through some personal problems at the time, but to little avail. The falling out got under his skin — Stiel says that her dad told her he felt alternately “heartbroken, confused, and yet unsurprised by the rejection.” Just before Ramis died, Murray showed up unannounced at his old friend’s house at 7 a.m. with a box of doughnuts and a police escort. Ramis had pretty much lost his ability to speak by that point, so Murray did most of the talking. They didn’t rehash the events from the set of Groundhog Day, choosing instead to hang out for a couple of hours, laugh, and make amends.
