Honda's Ferris Bueller Super Bowl Commercial Debuts
01.30.12 by Chris
In the 1986 movie, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) played hooky and went on a joyride in a Ferrari 250GT California Spyder. Now, 26 years later, a middle-aged Bueller calls in sick to work and goes for a joyride in a... Honda CR-V?
A week ahead of the Big Game, Honda's released its Super Bowl commercial, "Matthew's Day Off," in which Broderick reenacts scenes from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. While we appreciate Honda and Broderick trying to re-spark the magic from the John Hughes classic, something about Ferris Bueller being a spokesman for Honda seems, well, off.
But you know what doesn't get old even after 26 years? That infectious "Oh Yeah" song.
