Matthew Broderick’s Day Off…

Part of me would love to watch the Super Bowl. Not for the American football, of course – I could make less sense of that than I can of soccer. For the advertisements. With a huge audience and incredibly expensive airtime, those investing in advertising spots tend to bring their “a-game.” This year, for instance, we have the below clip, which sees Matthew Broderick effectively re-living his most iconic role, skipping work. Of course, the Honda CR-V isn’t nearly as cool as Cameron’s father’s convertible, but we’ll chalk that up to suspension of disbelief, right?

I love the way that they actually use Yell-O’s Oh Yeah.

And it’s worth remembering last year’s stand-out spot, the famous Darth Vader commercial, which is only now airing in Irish cinemas. Yes, it’s taken us a year to receive the cast-offs of last year’s football.

  1. It’s proof that a sequel featuring a middle-aged Ferris Bueller would work.

  2. I’ve seen that VW commercial before, it’s brilliant!
