This week, the following teaser ad was released to the Internets. It features Matthew Broderick reprising his role as Ferris Bueller. Check it out:
A source familiar with Honda’s operations hinted to us earlier this year that the company was going to do a Ferris Bueller-style ad for the Super Bowl starring none other than Matthew Broderick.
The source also added that the spot was going to mimic much of the original film, except this time prominently featuring Hondas. The big jump the two valets do in Cameron’s dad’s Ferrari? We hear this time it’s going to be a Honda CR-V.
Honda is pouring a lot of money into this ad and, according to our source, hired The Hangover writer/director Todd Phillips to put it all together.
Hmm. On one hand: ugh, ads. On the other hand: Ferris Bueller!
Not being a football fan, I’m happy there will be at least one thing to look forward to during the game other than the drinking of beer and eating of fried foods (as you know, I’ve already written off the halftime show). Time will tell on this one.
