Ferris Bueller lives again ... in Super Bowl ad for Honda

Published Jan. 31, 2012

Ferris Bueller is about to get another day off. And predictably, it's Super Bowl Sunday. Matthew Broderick is appearing in viral web teases to the commercial, and of course, everyone except my mom has e-mailed Stuck in the '80s about it.

Well, les jeux sont faits. Translation? Here's the scoop: It's for a Honda commercial, according to

"A source familiar with Honda's operations hinted to us earlier this year that the company was going to do a Ferris Bueller-style ad for the Super Bowl starring none other than Matthew Broderick," the site reports. "The source also added that the spot was going to mimic much of the original film, except this time prominently featuring Hondas. The big jump the two valets do in Cameron's dad's Ferrari? We hear this time it's going to be a Honda CR-V."

Here's the full 10 seconds of glory.
