It’s one of the most iconic movies of the 80’s – and now it’ll be used to sell you the attractive wares that Honda is peddling to your neighborhood.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was a smash, one of myriad hits that John Hughes produced in the 80’s to highlight the world-weary teenagers of the world and cater to their tastes. The movie’s direct-to-camera dialogue, soundtrack, and ridiculous scenarios won America’s hearts and turned Matthew Broderick into the soft-talking star we see today. The first thing the internet did once it learned some sort of follow-up was going to be made with Broderick in the lead? Freak the hell out. Assumptions were made – was somebody making a Ferris Buehler sequel, where he’s an adult? Are we going to have a continuation of one of the most beloved movies of the 80’s?
No, turns out Matthew Broderick has broken the precious promise he made to himself to comb his hair until the end of days and give us something harkening back to the era where he was one of the world’s biggest rising stars. And here, featured in its entirety, is the commercial that everyone was losing our minds over – Matthew Broderick and his Honda.
He’s still got charisma.
