Sundays Super Bowl halftime ad break is still almost a week away, but you can get a sneak peek at Hondas new Ferris Bueller-inspired spot by clicking below. In fact, youll get a whole lot more than a peek: This is the full two-and-a-half minute version of Matthew Broderick reprising his role in an homage to the iconic 1986 John Hughes comedy. The clip that will be broadcast during halftime where ad time costs $3.5 million for 30 seconds will be only one minute long.

I like Matthew Broderick. The Freshman was a great movie. Family Business was good too.
What movie was this based on? Seriously. I have no idea.
26 years ago. Hard to believe.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off

sheesh, did ya just crawl out from under a rock?
Ferris Beuller’s day off.
I can’t look at that movie in quite the same light since Jeffery Jones turned out to be a freaking pervert. Principal Rooney’s (Jones) obsession with catching Ferris seem a whole lot more sinister now...
Ferris Bueller Day off? Never heard of it? It one of those classic iconic movies - the 80’s
Ever notice that every CRV on the road looks near new no matter how old it is. Do CRV owners have some compulsive disorder about keeping their cars spotless?

Now that was good. He doesn’t look much different than he did 25 years ago.
Geez, dont be too hard on the guy...even if he is clueless beyond belief. Some people actually do crawl out from under rocks.
I guess it would be funny if I had ever seen the movie. I mean I sorta know the plot and have seen the Ben Stein part quite a few times on other things, but never watched the actual movie.
Someone else will have to tell me if they pulled it off.
Brilliant move to release the commercial early. Honda is going to get a lot of viewers looking at this, in addition to the Super Bowl spot. Look at FR as an example. What other commercial gets its own thread?
Some of us were busy raising children during the 80’s. I never heard of, much less saw, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off till the mid to late 90s. Never thought of parenthood as living under a rock before.
I guess now we know what "Rooney Eats It" means.
Holy Crap where did the last 26 years go
