So here’s the Honda Super Bowl commercial that’s been going around wherein we see Matthew Broderick basically reprise his most famous role as Ferris Bueller as he skips work and, well, has a day off. Many of you readers have probably seen it by now, but I didn’t bother watching it until yesterday, and here’s why: the idea of using Ferris Bueller to sell anything is completely opposite everything Ferris Bueller was about. He’s irresponsible and encourages bad behavior, and he had a hand in destroying a valuable vehicle! When I eventually got around to watching the ad, I got exactly what I had anticipated. It’s entertaining on a nostalgic level, but Matthew Broderick is a sell out for doing it. Sorry, Matt. For what it’s worth: you were great in Ladyhawke, too! Just don’t bring Phillipe the Mouse back to sell me phone plans or life insurance or something.
