Save Ferris: Matthew Broderick Returns as Ferris Beuller in New Honda Ad

"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"

Matthew Broderick returns to his iconic role as sly slacker Ferris Bueller in new television ads for Honda cars that will debut during next week's Super Bowl.

Don't want to wait to watch the commercial? No worries, you can check out all the fun online! Broderick actually portrays himself in the ads, calling up his bosses at the movie studio, pretending to be sick in order to play hooky from work. There's even that song  "Oh, Yeah!" by Yello that played at the end of the John Hughes' classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off during the extended credits, with Principal Rooney on the bus! Matthew spends his "free day" from filming his latest movie driving around in his Honda CR-V , wasting time at a beachfront amusement park and hanging out at the Natural History Museum, re-connecting with nature. He does encounter a bit of trouble when his boss drives up beside him on the road, but an enormous panda bear won at the amusement park saves the day. He even gets up and sings (unfortunately, not to the Beatle's "Twist & Shout") at a parade in Chinatown.

Of course, he does make a return at the end of the commercial, asking why the audience is still here, watching. It's been 26 years, and we'll wait another 26 to see you again, Ferris. See you at the Super Bowl...
