The mystery behind Matthew Broderick's Ferris Bueller Super Bowl ad was short-lived, as Honda has released the extended commercial.
Although the teaser clip that circulated last week told viewers they'd have to wait until Sunday to see what Broderick was up to, we should know by now that the Internet waits for no official release date.
Broderick, 49, plays himself in the clip, but with plenty of "Bueller" references. (Such as the hotel's parking attendant saying in a Ben Stein-esque deadpan, "Broderick?...Broderick?")
After calling in sick, Broderick takes off in the 2012 Honda CR-V (instead of Cameron's dad's 1961 Ferrari) for a day on the town, hitting up the beach, a parade and the Natural History museum as Yello's "Oh Yeah" plays in the background.
Honda explains in the clip's description on YouTube that they "hid over two dozen references to the movie throughout the commercial. Some are obvious, some are VERY subtle. See how many you can find."
How many "Bueller" references did you spot? Was it as good as you hoped?
Hello, i feel that i saw you visited my weblog thus i came to go back the prefer?.I'm trying to in finding issues to improve my website!I suppose its good enough to make use of some of your ideas!!
must look at this chanel 2011 for promotion code
Cute to see Bueller again....Matthew's acting was not the greatest though–he is capable of much better. I had never heard of the accident he was in where he killed others. Tragic.
Seriously folks. Just relax and have a good time. it's all in fun. If you don't like it don't watch it!
Mathew is always cool, funny, smart and unassuming. His role in Biloxi Blues was brilliant comedy – Ho Yo Ho Sir! – classic.
Great Commercial, love it!
its hysterical .. total Mathew Brodrick..
I love the ad, but to me there are a few things missing. Where are Cameron and Sloan? Ben Stein should have played the valet. Even if we can't have the actor who played the principal, what about the secretary? She was hilarious. I still loved it, but felt there were a few more things that could have been done to make it even better!
I'm just happy they didn't base it on the Ferris Bueller series. Am I the only one that remembers that piece of carp? I think it single-handidly killed the chance for a sequel.
A kinda cool response video to ferris and Honda – http://cmftv.com/yihUfh
Loved it! Great references. Well done. Brought back great memories.
Lol, the?s aren't affiliated with ted or the other trolls. Just some of us who like the anonymity of posting that way. The trolls sometimes post as that as well but then again the trolls post as everyone at one point or another.
To all of you responding to "Ted",
First off, "Ted" is what's known as a troll. A troll is someone who makes comments on sites like this one for the sole purpose of getting as many reactions to the ridiculous comments the troll posts. On this particular blog "Ted" has a little crew of trolls. They use various screen names and often share the "?" screen name. They also use certain words and certain spellings of words such as "lesbeans" which some times can clue you in that it is this particular troll crew commenting. I really don't mind them. Sometimes they actually make me laugh.
I LOVE the nostalgia!!!
Shut up about this accident in Ireland. People get killed in accidents all the time. It is tragic and yes I would be livid If it happened to my family. But it was decades ago. I wouldn't dare sit up and ruin someone's life by constantly reminding them that they killed my deceased loved ones. It doesn't bring them back. Lighten up. Life is for the living!
It's very good, but I liked the Audi twilight mock ad better
I know your aunt and she was chasing around after horsefaced SJP. She wanted to take a ride on that nag.
That was a excellent commercial. Kudos to the marketing team that put it together for Matthew agreeing to reprise one of our favorite character roles. Looking forward to Sunday and watching it on the big screen.
I think Ted is meeeeeeean and needs to put his phone up before the teacher catches him playing on it.
♪My Little Horseface♪♪My Little Horseface♪
Instead of a Honda he should jump on the back of his wife and ride off into the sunset.
Official LOL of the day!
I spilled my coffee thanks! lol haha....
I remember when they had that wreck in Ireland and it was an ACCIDENT. They were in a rental car and forgot about the left side of the road rule in the UK. No one was drunk and he did apologize to the family and pay their bills. People forget that he shattered a leg in the wreck and still has problems with it to this day. Grey almost quit acting after the accident and her career never recovered from the hiatus she took. The family of the victims were more angry at the court system than at Broderick, along with being mad at the highway people because that stretch of road was dangerous even to those who drove it every day.
They "forgot" about driving on the correct side of the road and this makes it an "accident!"
R U kidding me? If you are too frickin stupid to know how to drive on the correct side of the road then you have NO BUSINESS driving in another country. He was NOTHING but a negligent, reckless driver. I am certain that YOU do not speak for the family, or even know the TRUE facts.
For those of you knocking the "foreign cars", most of them are made in strange places like Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, etc. The workers are U.S. and that is enough to not care what name is on the finished product. Now, on the other hand, Ford sends a lot of their manufacturing off-shore to Mexico and other places. I guess that would make Honda more American-made than Ford.
I'm still waiting for the Angry Republicans(TM) to post bile about liberals, Obama, and to post sadness over the lack of extreme religion in politics.
I thought the commercial was funny, witty, and interesting.
Lighten up, peeps. Your underwear is showing.
I think he is a t urd knocker. A lesbean one.
I like it. But I already drive a Honda!
The sad thing is that if Matthew Broderick had killed himself and Jennifer Gery in this head-on collision, it would have made NATIONAL NEWS and the sheep of the world would have wept and mourned in the streets. BUT, because it was two "nobodys" who died in the crash, it was hushed up and Broderick's life went on. Money talks.
F Honda and their crappy cars. Foreign cars have ruined this economy and the dummies who continue to buy them are anti-American fools.
It is pretty ironic that someone who KILLED TWO PEOPLE due to reckless driving is starring in an auto advertisement. How pathetic that all you sheep worship a killer who's celebrity status got his crimes covered over.
Excellent job, they did it justice. Too bad it wasn't an American car that went into this, it may end up selling a few and it would be even better if those were Chryslers or GM's (even Ford's, I suppose). I could easily picture the Chevy Equinox giving that CRV a good sized wedgie for style, quality, and fuel efficiency.
Look for a clarrient being played by someone behind his boss when they are stopped at the light.
Actually, it is YOU who have issues. Whether you deliberately murder someone or you murder them due to your negligence, it is still murder. I wish it had been your loved ones he had killed. Then we would see how easily you would have gotten over it and have remained a fan.
Save Ferriis!Charlie had a great part in that movie.
why didn;t they put jennifer and charlie in the ad.....now that would be.........ohh yeah.........
Can you only remember how GREAT this movie was? Mathew was not only a great one, but can you even remember and appreciate how Alan performed? This new ad brings it all back... A lot of folks can't see genius when stares right into their eyes, I have never seen so much talent and flash back packed into a 60 second spot! This add not only deserves this years's Lion, but it freakin deserves the freakin T-Rex award of the century... Wake up you xenophobic pathetic pieces of worthless salami, this is greatness looking right at you. The world needs a break, let some artists bring it a little closer. It's too bad this add couldn't keep it under wrap until the BIG event...
Oh my hell that was hilarious!!! I love the way this was put together, perfect
He seems so slow like he had a stroke or is heavily medicated? He used to be fast and sharp now he seems like he's been living under Prozac and Valium or something. I guess I would too if I had to wake up next to Secretariat every day. Can a her horse-face fit into that CR-V?
Awesome commercial! For those people who thought it was dumb or stupid; if you're not a product of the 80's and don't know who Ferris Bueller is, go watch today's "reality BS" and shut the hell up. Have a nice day :)
Bueller, Bueller, Bueller
0h Ferris you're still a righteous dude.
What happened to Matthew Broderick? When I saw Ferris Beuller's Day Off back in the day, I thought Broderick was the coolest human being on the face of the Earth. Ever since, he just looks like a nerd. Every movie he's in he plays a geek, a weakling, a patsy. I thought he was just being type-cast, but now that I see this, I see that he does not have the ability be cool anymore. Ferris Beuller is officially dead.
I thought it was a very charming commercial, and (surprise) Matthew Broderick is a middle-aged family man. It's not 1987, and last I heard, aging wasn't a crime. If only Alan Ruck had made a cameo!
I was hoping to see Alan Ruck, too!! Oh, well- it was still nicely done. :o)
Gays are going to end the Humanity.
Actually, you PeterD will be responsible for ending the "Humanity" as you phrase it. Read a book and educate your vacant mind!
I get it !!!!! "I could be the Walrus, I'd still have to bum rides off of people." LOL, very well done.
I was very disappointed to find out it wasn't a teaser for a Ferris Bueller sequel! I thought him as an older Ferris calling out to work would have been awesome!
I was hoping it was a lead in to Ferris Bueller takes a day off of work too and boy it would have been awesome. Good times back then
BEST SUPER BOWL AD OF THE YEAR!!!
No wonder this country is such sad shape. The number of nasty, cynical and just plain ignorant comments about a light, funny commercial is pathetic. There are a lot of miserable people in the world. Geez!
Awesome commercial! I think it's funny and original.
Actually, it is not "original." It is drawing heavily from scenes in a movie. I take it you haven't seen the movie.
Hoooray living in the past! If I was him I'd wanna relive the good ol' days pre-horse marriage.
Like he cares what people like you have to say...He is well respected in the industry, has a solid family life and he's laughing all the way to the bank.
Hey cool.. guess what? I don't care what you have to say either.
Now go back to watching some useless reality crap like Jersey Shore because it sounds like you have the mentality of the bunch
Was that Abe Froman I saw in the background?
The sausage king of chi-town, brah?
I think this was a great idea for a commercial, but the execution is terribly flawed. I feel bad that this is what has become of the mighty Ferris Bueller. An overweight, balding middle-aged man who drives around with a stuffed panda in a bland SUV. What happened to his hot girlfriend? his million friends? where's his Ferrari? Ugh, I wish I'd never seen this.
Was he suppose to discover the Fountain of Youth or something? Sheesh you don't get the ad.
That's almost as silly as asking "where's the death star" in VW's darth vader ad.
Loved it. Thought it was brilliant advertising.
Best positive comment!
Yep, loved it here too.
Why is the murderer still in the spotlight? The mother and daughter he killed while driving around drunk with Jennifer Grey in Ireland are a pile of bones thanks to him.
Man you have issues.
That happened in 1987 it is now 2012.
He met with the family in 2003 to make amends. Sheesh you don't even know what murder is.
He wasn't drunk. All else aside, if that were the case do you seriously believe Honda would use him in their superbowl ad?
You're an idiot.
Why don't you people read a little before you make statements. First of all the family of the victims was distraught over the fact that he only got a small fine. He was facing a 5 year sentence but was obviously let go due to his Hollywood status. And most importantly, why are you so quick to defend him? Are you that brainwashed by Hollywood and the limelight? If it was your family members killed would you be so quick to forgive him?
You speak the truth. People do not like when their little tin God's are shattered. This is why so many negative comments. This man IS a murderer. I was a fan before reading about how Matthew Broderick killed two people by driving like an idiot. Its the way he dealt with it afterwards by not admitting full blame then wanting to forget about it cause HE had been through enough. He should be spending the rest of his life in prison for the lives he took.
FlamingoKid: At least there are some people out there like you with a brain capable of thinking, instead of these dimwit losers defending him because they mindlessly stare at their TV's night after night and silently worship these fake icons.
You say that as if they would have contributed something to society. Everyone knows Irish people are the trailer trash of Western Europe...you'd have to go all the way to France to find a people more useless.
Probably did the world a favor.
Hope he will get his lesbean wife some hay and oats. I bet she gets tired of just munching on carpet.
Hope you get a life.
What a sad a pathetic little life you must lead.
Is Ted your Dad? I hear "stupid" is hereditary.
Another closeted gay actor hasbean with a fake marriage to a lesbean. hougft we were rid of that gayfer.
You are an angry person. Lighten up brother.
You're an idiot. You should try not to write things down. It leaves evidence of this.
Ted (and your other posting name "neeeeeigh": You obviously are obsessed with gays and lesbians. Grow up buddy.
@Ted If you spent a bit more time learning to spell simple words perhaps you wouldn't be so bitter. Hint: Try spell-check next time.
Are you effen kidding me?!?
YOU are an idiot! Get out of your mom's basement and find a job.
Oh, I get it! Stringbean!
Ted, next time your brain produces a thought ... just let it go. Don't hold onto it, don't share it with the world. Just let it flitter back into the void from whence it came.
LEARN TO SPELL AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, LEARN TO FORM A COMPLETE AND PROPER SENTENCE.
You seem hateful towards those with success
ted – break is over, get back to your homework.
Everyone who replies to this pre-teen dolt (including me) is just giving him the attention he wants. Just ignore this ass – he'll eventually go away.
Thanks for coming out and posting your Facebook status.
The word is 'Cloistered', you 'tard
You know they say about people who say things against gay people, that secretly deep down they are one themselves. I just have to add I have nothing against gay people, I just wanted to write this before anyone gets PC on me.
So interesting. Broderick just told me how hot you are Ted.
Oy Teddy....Why so angry brutha?!?!?!?! Buddha has life's answers for you. Find him and you will be released from your straightjacket of hatred.
Without trying to justify the anti-gay hatred that the OP was espousing, I know second-hand that Broderick was certainly interested in women during the filming of FBDO (aunt worked on the film).
you are a loser! This is a cool commercial. Love the ferris bueller references! way to go Honda!
U Mad bro?
Ted, you really need to learn how to lighten up. Did you watch the commercial?
HE'S CUTE AND YOU KNOW IT.
