Ferris Bueller Coming Back

( 4UMF NEWS ) Ferris Bueller Coming Back:

Everyone’s favorite slacker teen is coming back — for a Honda commercial.

A 10-second clip circulating on the Web shows Matthew Broderick pulling back the curtains in his bedroom and quipping “How can I handle work on a day like today?”, a play off of his famous line in his 1986 comedy “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

The clip, which then fades to black and says 2.5.12 — which is the day of the Super Bowl — prompted rumors around the Web that Ferris is coming back. But car blog Jalopnik says that Broderick’s just starring in what could be one of the most talked about Super Bowl commercials — for Honda.

Jalopnik’s report devastated fans who were eager for Ferris to return to the silver screen.

“I hate Honda more than I can say right now,” one user, identified as gregorypope23, wrote on YouTube. “They show us a glimpse of something we can only dream about, then replace it with a crappy car.”

Jalopnik reported the car company poured a lot of money into the commercial, and even hired “The Hangover” director/writer Todd Phillips to make it.
