Matthew Broderick Reprises His Role as Ferris Bueller in Super Bowl Commercial; Watch a Teaser for the Spot Now

     January 26, 2012

Some of life’s greatest nuggets of wisdom come from the Philosophy of John Hughes.  One of the writer-director’s best works (and one of my all-time favorite movies) is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It’s one of the most re-watchable movies in history, and Matthew Broderick gives a spot-on performance as the coolest teenager to grace the screen. Who didn’t want to be Ferris Bueller growing up?

For a commercial during the upcoming Super Bowl, Broderick is apparently reprising his role as Bueller. I have no idea what the product is, but I’m beyond excited to see the full spot. A 10-second teaser has been released and I guarantee that it’ll put a giant smile on your face. Hit the jump to check it out, and watch the full commercial during Super Bowl XLVI on February 5th. [Update: Jalopink reports that the ad is actually for Honda and the company hired Todd Phillips (The Hangover) to put the ambitious piece together. The spot will mimic much of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, except it will (obviously) feature some Hondas.]
