Matthew Broderick reprised his role as school-skipping, "Twist-and-Shout"-singing troublemaker Ferris Bueller in a funny new Super Bowl ad. But this time the actor plays himself -- he fakes being sick to skip a day of filming so that he can crash a parade, visit an amusement park, and terrorize children at a museum. This time he flies solo on his little excursion, and he trades the red Ferrari that belonged to Cameron's dad for his own Honda CR-V.
Unfortunately Charlie Sheen and Jennifer Grey don't make cameos, although a valet does his best to imitate Ben Stein's famous "Bueller…Bueller" line. The iconic "Oh Yeah" song also plays in the background, and Matthew ends the commercial with Ferris' great quote: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in a while, you'll miss it." The full ad can be seen here.
Matthew's second day off was so much fun that it got us wishing that other stars of funny 80s movies would reprise their old roles for Super Bowl ads. Chevy Chase also revisited his "Vacation" character Clark Griswold last year, so there's hope that these celebs will star in future commercials:
This actor seems to spend all his time being a serious activist these days, so wouldn't it be great to see him unwind by revisiting his surfer dude character Jeff Spicoli? The scene in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" where Spicoli orders a pizza in class would be perfect for a Super Bowl commercial.
Maybe Bill and the dancing gopher from "Caddyshack" could call a truce and have a beer together. Of course it would have to come from Rodney Dangerfield's amazing golf bag/radio/beer keg.
Michael J. Fox
This ageless actor could peddle some futuristic sneakers by outwitting Biff on a hoverboard in a "Back to the Future Part II" parody.
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter
It would be most triumphant to see the stars of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" transform into the dudes from San Dimas again, but they'd have to trade their time-traveling phone booth for a smart phone, of course.
Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, and Emilio Estevez
Maybe the members of "The Breakfast Club" could catch up over sausage and biscuits at their favorite fast food restaurant. But of course we'd still love to see Ally munch on her butter, Pixy Stix, and Cap'n Crunch sandwich instead.
So which of your favorite funny 80s movies would you like to see turned into Super Bowl ads? Sound off in the comments!
