“Matthew’s Day Off” Honda CR-V Super Bowl Ad

Last week I posted a 10 second commercial featuring Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller.  The ending said “2-5-12.”  So, one would figure the full commercial would debut during the Super Bowl.  WRONG!  It debuts right here, right now!

Turns out the commercial is for the 2012 Honda CR-V.  Broderick re-creates “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” in present day.  Instead of blowing off school, he blows off work.  True fans of Ferris will find over TWO DOZEN references to the movie.  Some are obvious, some are VERY subtle.
