Ferris Bueller takes day off in new Super Bowl ad

By Will Brinson

Matthew Broderick is embracing an old role for a Super Bowl commercial, as he'll be playing the role of Ferris Bueller for an as-yet-unknown advertiser.

We know this because "Coming Soon" recently posted a 10-second teaser for an advertisement (yes, these are things now apparently).

In the clip (below), Broderick walks to the window and opens up the shades to his room, reciting a familiar quote from the move, with a small change.

Then we get the *bow-bow ... chicka-chicka-ka* tune annnnnnd scene.

What's the advertisement for? No one knows. My best guess is Holiday Inn Express, although I like Five-Hour Energy as a dark horse. Mrs. Brinson thinks it's vacation-related (Expedia and/or something with really quick booking) since he's going to inevitably skip work to go and have fun. But she's also smarter than me.

Leave your guesses in the comments after you fire up the nostalgia machine, and just be glad Broderick's finally embracing the only role he'll ever be known for.
