Full Ferris Bueller Superbowl Ad Is More Or Less A Short Film

You have to love adverts that have very little to do with the product that they're advertising, and the two kinds of products probably most notorious for this are mobile phones and cars. So here's a car advert that is probably the closest we'll ever get to a Ferris Bueller's Day Off sequel. Directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips, it features Matthew Broderick skiving off work to go an a series of adventures that include, well, going to a fairground and staring at a stuffed walrus.

Yes, I think he's mellowed out a bit since the 80s, but for fans of the movie this 150 second-long advert probably contains too many references for you to handle all at once. Definitely worth a watch.

It's likely that at this point some of you think we're being paid by Honda to run this ad. Well, we're not. The CR-V is probably really, really rubbish. I bet it doesn't have any horsepower at all. I don't think it even comes with horses included. I say this with full authority as someone who never learnt how to drive.
