Life comes at you fast.
With a brilliant ad that appealed to the kid in all of us, Honda enlisted Matthew Broderick himself to revive the iconic character of Ferris Bueller for their Super Bowl ad. In the commercial, Broderick fakes sick for a day of shooting, and hits the town.
With his trusty CR-V and Yello’s 1985 song “Oh Yeah” from the “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” soundtrack playing in the background, Broderick hit up horse races, performed in a parade (though he didn’t sing “Danke Schoen”) and managed to avoid being spotted by his studio boss at a red light.
Honda says that true Bueller fans should be able to spot over two dozen references to the film in the 2.5 minute ad — how many did you find?
