Matthew Broderick’s Day Off

Broderick 560x226

The folks at Honda have recreated the classic, Ferris Buehler’s Day Off, for their Super Bowl Ad featuring the Honda CR-V. It’s a nice bit of nostalgia, directed by Todd Phillips of The Hangover. I guess they saw his work on Hangover 2 and figured he’d be the perfect guy to attempt to recreate a hit movie. In the extended version below Matthew Broderick calls in sick to his job, and then embarks on a day of fun in his CR-V, which may seem a bit familiar. They even used the Day Bow Bow song :

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. See how many you can find. #dayoff
