The Popdust Files: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Matthew Broderick, movies, Wayne Newton

Plenty of casual Super Bowl viewers tune in solely for commercials, which has inspired a flood of pre-show coverage analyzing marketing strategies and now, early releases of the most high-profile ads. Who cares how Rob Gronkowski’s ankle is doing, will anything ever top Google’s Parisian Love? Matthew Broderick’s Honda CR-V spot set to air during Sunday’s game is a take on his 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, resulting in a healthy portion of ’80s nostalgia, only without one crucial element: “Danke Schoen.” “Matthew’s Day Off,” finds Broderick recreating aspects of the epic cinematic field day—the museum trip, untrustworthy valet service, even Sloane’s white fringe jacket—but not the traffic-halting, float-riding performance of Wayne Newton’s classic. How are we supposed to prep for karaoke night now? In honor of this poor choice by the Honda marketing team, we’ve included the new commercial as well as the film’s performance, lest you need to be reminded of Broderick’s original choreography. Behold, Ferris taking the lead on “Danke Schoen” and “Twist and Shout,” which have made us perpetually optimistic about any and all parades in the Tri-State area.
