The teaser video above appeared on YouTube and the internet is abuzz with excitement, mainly hoping that we’ll catch up with a modern day Ferris Bueller.

“Bueller? Bueller?”
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a classic. The 1986 John Hughes film follows a young man who takes the day off from school to explore Chicago with his best friends. The film connected with the audience in more ways than one – Matthew Borderick’s character spoke directly to the camera and ultimately made Ferris Bueller the cinematic poster child for a generation.

If you’re interested in learning film production, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a perfect example of how to make a great movie.

The film included cameos by future star Charlie Sheen and Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing. There are also probably another ten things you didn’t know about Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off. Including that in 2011, the film celebrated it’s 25th anniversary. And if that doesn’t make you feel old, how about this – Matthew Broderick turns 50 on March 21st.


Ferris in 1986…


…and Ferris Bueller now.

While the teaser video excites us too, we’re eager to see what product or (finger’s crossed) film, that Broderick is promoting. All will be revealed on February 5th when the curtain is lifted on the commercial – that is set to air during the Super Bowl. Apparently it’s part of a series of commercials that will take place during the game between the Giants and Patriots.

UPDATE: 01-30-2012
The Ferris Bueller, uh, Matthew Broderick commercial has been revealed! It’s Honda’s Game Day commercial for the Honda CR-V. The commercial stars none other than Matthew Broderick re-enacting scenes and key moments from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
