“Matthew’s Day Off” 2012 Superbowl Commercial!

This Superbowl ad was leaked early with a teaser and it caused the internet to explode with so much speculation on there being a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off sequel that Honda decided to release the whole trailer to appease the fans.

It was a good choice because:

1) Now I want to buy a Honda vehicle.
2) It’s awesome to see Matthew Broderick engaging again in Ferris Bueller shenanigans.

See if you can catch some of the Easter Eggs from the film that were thrown into the commercial!

  1. I predict the complaint will be this is disrespectful to the memory of John Hughes. Let the games begin.

    And uhh, they really couldn’t get that Cameron guy to do this?
