A Ferris Bueller’s Day Off sequel—it’s something fans both deeply long for and are terrified might actually happen.  While it would be great to see Ferris again, it’s also likely that a full-length sequel would in no way live up to the excellence of the original.  So how to get around such a quandary?  Simply hire Todd Phillips, director and writer of The Hangover, nab Ferris actor Matthew Broderick, and make a video teasing Ferris’ return.

And then make it a freaking Honda commercial.

That’s right.  Earlier this week,  a video was released of Broderick recreating a scene from the original film in a tease that seemed to indicate a sequel was on the way.  Check it out below:

However, it appears that this is simply a teaser trailer not for a film, but for a Super Bowl commercial for Honda, which will feature Broderick as Bueller, and pretty much break the heart of every Ferris fan ever.

Oh well, at least it’s not a sequel directed by Phillips, whose Hangover films leave a bit to be desired and come nowhere near the excellence of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  So view the clip above, and daydream that you live in a world in which such miracles as an awesome Ferris sequel exist.

What do you think of the clip?
