/// Ferris Bueller Is Back, And He’s Driving a Honda Mom-Wagon

January 30, 2012  |  All Things Digital

The Honda 2012 CR-V isn’t quite the same vehicle as the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. But Matthew Broderick — a.k.a Ferris Bueller – is bringing back his high-school-truant charm in a Super Bowl ad for the car company. The commercial was originally supposed to be kept under wraps until game day, Gawker Media’s car blog Jalopnik spoiled the surprise last Friday. Now Honda put the full ad on YouTube earlythis morning. Jalopnik says Honda hired “The Hangover” writer/director Todd Phillips to create it. In the spot, Broderick reprises his role as Ferris Bueller, calling in sick from work in Los Angeles instead of high school in Chicago. Instead of crooning a karaoke version of Danke Schoen during a parade, this time Broderick gets caught up in a Chinese New Year parade. His CR-V is taken for a joy ride not by garage attendants, but by a valet parker at a posh restaurant. Here’s the spot,  for those of you that would rather just watch it yourself. Maybe…nine times?
