'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Superbowl Advert
The original film Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of the most joyous celebrations of adolescence ever made. Now, 26 years after the film was released, Matthew Broderick has come back with a teaser TV advert for the 2012 Superbowl that ties into the original movie? Terrific.
There are tons of hidden objects and Easter eggs in this extended Honda advertisement too, so watch it a few times and leave a comment identifying some of what you've found and how it ties into the original movie. Enjoy.
Oh, and do wait until the end. Really. Then go home.
