Ferris Bueller is back and he’s selling Hondas. Matthew Broderick reprises his famous role in a 2012 Super Bowl Commercial for the new Honda CR-V.
Broderick revisits some famous scenes from Ferris Bueller but with a few interesting changes.
Instead of Cameron getting lost in a painting at the Chicago Art Institute, Ferris loses himself at the Natural History Museum in the eyes of a walrus. Instead of singing “Danke Schoen” during a parade, he sings a Chinese song during a New Year’s celebration. And instead of going to a baseball game he watches some horse races.
Ferris does almost get caught by his boss (instead of his principle), he does give his keys to a devious valet, and he does utter some of the movie’s most famous lines.
“How can I be expected to work on a day like today,” and “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while. You could miss it.”
Here’s Ferris Bueller’s Super Bowl commercial.
