Matthew Broderick who portrayed Ferris Bueller in the 80s film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"

Matthew Broderick brings back 80s icon

Bueller is making a comeback at this year’s Super Bowl XLVI.  The 80s pop icon, portrayed by Matthew Broderick, is slated to appear in a commercial during the Feb. 5 game, according to Newsday.

When the commercial’s teaser first broke, there was much speculation buzzing around the internet that Bueller was returning to the silver screen, but it turns out that Honda is behind the teaser. It’s belived that the automotive giant plans on using its CR-Z sports car to recreate some of the movie’s most iconic scenes, which originally used a Ferrari 250 California.

The released 10-second teaser shows Broderick walking up to a window, pulling the curtains apart and asking, “How can I handle work on a day like today?” The line is a clear parody of Broderick’s classic line from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. “How can I go to school on a day like today?”

Honda has received much negative backlash from the video. Angry fans, who have all been hoping for a sequel, have bombarded the the internet, claiming that they will never purchase a Honda product again.
