Ferris Bueller’s Second Day Off. Yes, That Is Matthew Broderick [VIDEO]

And Fansplosions Abound

It’s been over 25 years since poor Ferris Bueller had his last day off. The guy deserves it, no? What you’re watching is 10 pure seconds of unadulterated bliss. It’s also a teaser for a much larger Super Bowl commercial. For what? We don’t know and we don’t care.

I think trying to do a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off remake would be a terrible idea but an extended commericial during the Super Bowl may be just what the doctor ordered for fans of the classic 80s flick. It was posted by the YouTube user chuckachucka2012 (with no other videos) who writes, “We hate to be such a tease, but on a day like today, we just have to. Stick it out until the Super Bowl, or take a ‘day off’ on Monday and catch the big reveal.” CinemaBlend theorizes actor Matthew Broderick looks like he’s in a hotel so perhaps this is a commercial for a travel website? recently announced they would no longer be using William Shatner as their spokesperson. Could Broderick be his successor? Regardless, I can’t wait to see the entire thing, and if it’s only a minute, I hope that have an extended edition online later.
