About a quarter century after Matthew Broderick debuted in his now cult classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the veteran Broadway actor and Honda have collaborated on a 2 1/2-minute homage to the movie for a Super Bowl commercial touting the 2012 Honda CR-V.
In the 1986 film, a high school wise guy (Bueller played by Broderick) is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of that.
To celebrate the launch of the all-new 2012 CR-V, Honda brought Ferris Bueller's Day Off back. The carmaker has featured Broderick skipping out on a day of acting work and living it up in his all-new CR-V.
As Honda describes: "Think you're a true fan of Ferris Bueller's Day Off? We hid over two dozen references to the movie throughout the commercial. "Some are obvious, some are very subtle subtle. See how many you can find."
