Ferris Bueller Sequel? Nope, Just A Honda Ad

On Thursday, a mysterious clip starring a gray-haired Matthew Broderick appeared on YouTube. In the clip, Broderick opens the shades and says "How can I handle work on a day like today?" It's immediately followed by a date, which happens to be 2/5/11, or Super Bowl Sunday.

This description of the video on YouTube says:

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.

Naturally, this little teaser created a lot of buzz on the internet yesterday, with many wondering if it meant that Ferris Bueller sequel was in the works.

While that may in fact be true, this little clip is simply a teaser for a Super Bowl ad - for Honda. Jalopnik reports that Honda's ad will recreate many parts of the the classic film, including the famous Ferrari-jumping scene where the two shady valets take Cameron's dad's car out for a joyride. But this time, instead of a Ferrari, it will be a Honda CR-V.

Not only will the ad star Matthew Broderick, but it's also directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips.

I guess, in theory, they could announce some sort of plans for a sequel as part of the Honda Super Bowl ad. Maybe the ad is just a tester for public enthusiasm for a Ferris Bueller reunion. But that's probably just wishful thinking (or a terrible idea, depending on who you ask).
