Bueller...Bueller... Another Day Off for Broderick in Super Bowl Ad


The face is familiar (maybe with a wrinkle of two). The antics are definitely familiar.

Twenty-six years after skipping school, Ferris Bueller is about to take another day off: in particular, Super Bowl Sunday.

More accurately, it's Matthew Broderick's day off. Broderick played Bueller in the iconic 1986 movie. The one-minute spot is a very expensive 21st century stunt for Honda to promote its newly redesigned CR-V (so sadly, no convertible). But the commercial does offer some familiar elements: a roller-coaster ride and singing in a parade.

The commercial will be splashed across a bazillion television screens this Sunday when the New England Patriots meet the New York Giants in the Superbowl.
