Matthew Broderick’s Super Bowl Ad For Honda

Honda just launched "Matthew's Day Off", an extended version of their upcoming Super Bowl ad featuring Matthew Broderick. In the 2:20 mini-movie Matthew reprises his famous role from the 1986 Ferris Bueller's Day Off by calling in sick to his movie shoot so he can run around in his all-new 2012 CR-V.

Honda says there are more than two dozen references to the movie throughout the commercial including the flower delivery guy (0:57) as a reference to a famous scene in the 1986 movie. Unfortunately we couldn't spot the sweet 1961 Ferrari GT California or Jennifer Grey. Can you spot the other references?

    I finally saw this this morning (hey, I live in Thailand, gimme a break) and after a couple of weeks of anticipation I was pretty disappointed. I was hoping to see a little twinkle in Broderick’s eye that said ‘we’re having a little fun’, but all I saw was the endless dull grey of ‘I need money. Screw what’s left of my reputation.’ Bah humbug.

    This is so cool! Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of my favourite films. Such a classic. It’s so gutting though when the Ferrari GT gets wrecked. Heart-breaking.
