Japanese car manufacturer Honda have released a TV Advert to celebrate the launch the 2012 Honda CR-V, just in time for the 2012 Superbowl in the United States. Honda have brought the classic 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off back in a big game commercial. They cast Matthew Broderick as himself, skipping out on a day of acting work and living it up in his all-new CR-V.
The advert gives viewers the opportunity to relive movie history with Honda’s fresh twist and wonderful homage to the classic. This advert brings back memories from my childhood. I’ve probably watched the film more than 10 times over the years – it’s one of my favourites. Honda has stepped up with respect to tech features for this model of the CR-V. Bluetooth connectivity and streaming are standard across the model line and there’s a new i-MID display plus Pandora streaming audio through a smartphone application.
Those of you getting your brains into nostalgia mode probably remember Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It’s definitely one of the funniest films from the 1980s (in my opinion). The film starred Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jennifer Grey, Charlie Sheen and various others. The film was written and directed by legendary director John Hughes.
This is the brand new advert for the 2012 Honda CR-V:
Awesome, isn’t it? I’m glad that the makers of this advert have included my favourite quote from the movie: “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”.
