Why Domino’s Pizza Remade ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ [Opinion]

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is back on our screens thanks to Domino’s Pizza. Fans of the cult 1980’s movie can enjoy the delivery pizza company’s remake of one of the movie’s most famous scenes as it airs on TV in the U.S. from Monday, March 20.

The ad’s early reception has also been very positive. Domino’s Pizza has been credited with “hitting a lot of the beats of the original,” while Adweek states it “is a pretty faithful remake.”

The remake shows Joe Keery (star of Stranger Things) take on the mad race first run by Matthew Broderick in the 1986 movie. In the original, Broderick raced to home to avoid trouble for skipping school. In the Domino’s Pizza advert, Keery races home to meet a Domino’s delivery driver on his doorstep, pizza boxes in hand.
