Ferris Bueller, you're my hero. So are you Honda. And Matthew Broderick. And whoever else is responsible for this Super Bowl commercial for the new Honda CRV. (See? I even remember the model being advertised. That's an effective ad.)
Ferris, Matthew and Honda teased us a week ago with a short version of their Super Bowl commercial. We're left to assume this is the complete one. Is there more than one? Not sure. I can only hope so. It's the only reason I plan on tuning in on Sunday.
As for rumors that a real Ferris Bueller sequel is on the way, well, the script is ready and waiting for someone in Hollywood to take notice. Screenwriter Rick Rapier completed it years ago, and I still have a copy of it right here at my desk. About a year ago, we released the first 12 pages of the script. Earlier on, we released other scenes. (Here's one scene not many people have seen yet.) I know people have their doubts about the viability of a Ferris Bueller sequel, but all I can say is that I love what I see before me. At the very least, it should become a Web series. Give Rick a ring, Hollywood!
