To celebrate the launch of the all-new 2012 CR-V, Honda brought Ferris Bueller's Day Off back in a big game commercial. We cast Matthew Broderick as himself, skipping out on a day of acting work and living it up in his all-new CR-V. Relive movie history with Honda's fresh twist and wonderful homage to this '80s classic.
Think you're a true fan of Ferris Bueller's Day Off? We hid over two dozen references to the movie throughout the commercial. Some are obvious, some are VERY subtle. See how many you can find.
Inspired by one of our favorite websites, /Film.com, which ran an article called "The Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory" last year. The piece hypothesized that Cameron could have possibly imagined his whole Day Off, and that Ferris was actually his own Tyler Durden
