The Full Ferris Bueller Commercial

I have been waiting five days to actually watch the commercial. I felt like Ferris was such a big part of my life that I really wanted to savor the feeling of watching Ferris all grown up. I have to say it made me sad. There is no joy and no love. Ferris is alone with no friends and looks dead inside. Did Jennifer Grey and Charlie Sheen end up with the happy ending and Ferris is the guy who never grew up? Now I wish I had not watched. Thanks Honda.

No desire to watch it. I've heard his eyes looked completely lifeless. I want to remember Ferris the way he was. :)

I watched it. And I liked it. Maybe its because I aged with Ferris so it fits for me.

MB does come off a little more gay than he used to though.

I really, really wanted to see Alan Ruck, and the girl who's name I can't remember. maybe they'll make another commercial..

angie said...

I didn't think it was that bad.

Seachica said...

No way does Ferris end up owning a Honda CRV. This should have been a commercial for Lexus or Jaguar or a higher end car.

And what it really needed was a cameo by Charlie Sheen at the police station.

But he's not playing Ferris, he's being himself who is trying to channel his old character of Ferris. Which yes, is sad in itself but it is easier to get that MB is a no soul, lifeless shell, & okay with selling out, rather than the beloved Ferris that we all love.

Seachica said...

The girl was Mia Sara.

Laura said...

I loved it!!

AngusParvo said...

Vicki has the right idea. If you loved Ferris Bueller, do not watch this ad. I wish like hell I hadn't. It will fill you with a sadness that will haunt your dreams.

Bnl1016 said...

@ktheletter has the right idea. its NOT Ferris. He's playing himself. That's where they went wrong. They should have committed to reprising Ferris or just gone a different way. The hybridness of it is where the problem lies for me. He's playing himself, doing Ferris type things. He's NOT playing Ferris.

But I still liked it.

I liked it. And it was not Ferris. It was...Broderick...Brokerick

Patty said...

Oh, and Enty,
This is how a lot of us feel when you post those videos that you claim to be hysterical and are not.

Cheryl said...

What Seachica said. Come on! I drive a Honda! How boring!

This.

I'm with you Bnl. On one hand I liked it, but also agree it should've been done differently.

SkittleKitty said...

A little Mia Sara and Alan Ruck would have given it more life, but I still enjoyed it.

pilly said...

YES!

saucy maman said...

I think it's very good. It is funny in an ironic way.

FS said...

I loved it, but maybe I'm biased because I own a 2005 CRV and I.LOVE.MY.CAR.

There was something cheeky about it, as if MB is saying 'don't take this seriously, just enjoy the moment of nostalgia with me'. The article on Yahoo took the whole thing way too seriously.

I got a real kick out of it, and I loved Ferris. MB is showing more emotion than I've seen him show in years. Dead eyes, yes, but his face is moving.

Interplanet Janet said...

He just looks so lifeless and sad...

feraltart said...

I loved it! Don't worry about friends Enty. He has a wife, children & a career, getting time to himself is the great adventure.

pegd said...

I loved it too!

Majik said...

Loved it.

If all you negative nellies would just watch it again, you'll find a whole lotta easter eggs in there as a tribute to the original movie (i.e. guy behind Matthew on the roller coaster is wearing Cameron's shirt).

It's brilliant, and I'll bet Honda forked out enormous sums of money to get MB to do it.

Bnl1016 said...

^ There's a guy in the museum wearing Ferris's fascinating white tee and vest ensemble too. I loved those little tributes.

chopchop said...

I would've liked it better if his face had moved. Actors: please PLEASE stop with the facial fillers/surgery/botox whatthefuckever. You not only look ridiculous, but it makes your performances seem especially terrible. I refuse to give my money to Hollywood stars who have gone overboard with the anti-aging. Case in point: I will never, ever watch "Cougar Town". What Courtney Cox & that chick from Drew Carey Show have done to their faces is criminal.

Dani said...

I loved it! That being said, I am slightly confused as the teaser listed stars from the original movie.

Miss X said...

It made me smile.

But, I do wish they would have gone with actually using the Ferris character (along with Mia & Alan) rather than MB doing Ferris type things.

Sis said...

I loved it!

Momster said...

I liked it. But, I am easily amused.

Lori said...

it was kinda cute...

Next year I want a Breakfast Club commercial.

Reese said...

I thought it was awful. So disappointed. They could have done so much more/so much better. Disappointed that Mia Sara and Alan Ruck weren't in it. No Jennifer Gray wasn't disappointing because she looks totally different now (with her new nose) than she did in the movie.

Mooshki said...

Like Chopchop said, I think the reason he looks lifeless is because his face can't move. :(

Monica said...

I loved it! Sometimes i think people play the game "i hate everything so that makes me sooo edgy."

AKM said...

I'm with Monica. It was cute.

Comma Chaser said...

...interesting.
