So, last week, the internet was all a-twitter about a Matthew Broderick teaser that seemed to hint at a new Ferris Bueller movie. Except, predictably, it wasn't — it's just an ad for Honda cars. There were plenty of reactions that suggested that this was desecration of a great movie. I'm not sure I'd go that far — but then again, I don't particularly feel the need to buy a car any time soon either. Either way, it generated a lot of attention, which means we can undoubtedly look forward to plenty more examples of this form. I for one look forward to Critters shilling for Coca-Cola and Ralph Macchio sweeping the floor with a Roomba. [Topless Robot]
