Don’t tease us Ferris Bueller!

Last week some of us saw the following teaser for what we could have hoped was going to be a “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” sequel.

But we all knew in our hearts that it wouldn’t happen.  And really didn’t want a great memory like that to be ruined with a full feature sequel.  Then Monday rolls around and we got a special treat, even if it is a commercial for Honda.   Ferris Bueller playing games again.  This time to get out of work.

Smart move by Honda though.  Spot on concept, as the demographic that enjoyed this movie back in the 80s, is just that who’s driving the Honda CR-V now.

If you haven’t seen it, enjoy!

Did you see all the references to the original movie?  No?  Check them out here.  Were any others missed?

Now if this movie were ever to be remade, as so many movies are these days, it would definitely be a lot shorter with all the modern technology.  Just imagine with all the social media (FB, Foursquare, Twitter, etc) and GPS, Ferris would have been located in seconds.  Imagine the scene, Principal calls mother to tell her that Ferris isn’t at school, mother checks Foursquare, FB and Twitter, minutes later Ferris is located and caught.  Or even before all of this, sister Jeanie would have located him, tweeted, facebooked to rat him out.

Thank goodness we didn’t have any of that in the 80s, as this movie changed our lives.  And thank you Honda for reminding us of such a great movie and getting the real Ferris to participate!  SAVE FERRIS!
