In a new commercial for Honda, Matthew steps back into the shoes of the character that made him famous.

It’s not quite the sequel we’ve all been waiting for, but Ferris Bueller is back — in a manner of speaking, that is. In a commercial for the Honda CR-V slated to air during Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, Matthew Broderick channels Ferris when he fakes sick to get out of work. “I’ve got a lot to do today,” he says, with Yello’s “Oh Yeah” playing in the background.

“Life is packed with things you have to do, but sometimes you gotta live a little,” he continues, while driving around in his CR-V. On his joy ride, Broderick makes pit stops at a carnival, the beach, a museum, and even the racetrack, where the unsuspecting star gets smooched by an enthusiastic spectator.

Later on, in a throwback to the iconic parade scene from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Broderick takes the mic at a Chinese parade. “How could I resist?” he asks.

Danke schoen, Matthew, for reprising this classic character, if only for a commercial!

What do YOU think of Matthew’s new commercial, HollywoodLifers?

Who plays the agent in the ad? I recognize him but I just can’t remember.
