As you may have already heard via Twitter, Facebook, and basically all forms of social media Matthew Broderick is slated to reprise his role as the one and only 80’s ultra-cool John Hughes character, Ferris Bueller for supposedly a Superbowl Ad, nonetheless.
What for you may ask? Well, no one knows for sure.
All that is known is that a video was uploaded today onto a YouTube account aptly named “chuckachucka2012” that played a ten second clip of what seems to be a much older Ferris, throwing open the curtains and saying “How can I handle work on a day like today?” Which is very similar to the movie’s original line -if you ask any 80’s movie buff or anyone living in the state of Illinois – “How can I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?”
The only information that can be gathered is from the description of the video which states ” 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.”
With all the speculations buzzing the three most important questions I have are:
1.) Will Cameron and Sloan make an appearance?
2.) Will there be a “Save Ferris” message on the Wrigley Marque sign once more?
3.) Will the Sausage King of Chicago make is triumphant return on top of a float to serenade us once again?!
Check out the video below and share your thoughts and theories of what the video may be about!
Update: According to jalopnik the ten second clip featuring the 80’s character is for a Honda commercial, which sounds about right since Sarah Jessica Parker has openly expressed her fondness for Honda vehicles. Jalopnik further cites that the commercial will “mimic much of the original film, except this time prominently featuring Hondas” and that the commercial will be directed by The Hangover’s Todd Phillips.
