A new Super Bowl ad (first announced last week with this viral tease) for the Honda CR-V features Matthew Broderick in his iconic role as Ferris Bueller himself.

The just-released full-length version, featuring Broderick as a middle-aged Ferris and playing hooky from work instead of school, is certainly a fun homage.

Directed by Todd Philips (The Hangover), the CR-V ad campaign encourages people to do things they've always wanted to do ... as Ferris famously advocated.

Keep an eye out for various Ferris Bueller's Day Off tie-ins below:

OMG. Matthew Broderick is finally reprising his career-defining role of Ferris Bueller. That's the good news. The bad? It's only for a Super Bowl commercial.

The sequel to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has been rumored for years, and will likely never happen. Which is probably for the best, as it could never be topped.

Perhaps a 30- or 60-second Super Bowl ad - for what, we have no idea, but a teaser for the spot appears below - is the perfect dose of Bueller in 2012.

Check out a gray-haired Matthew reenacting a famous scene below:

We don't know what's funnier, seeing Broderick as a middle-aged version of Ferris, or that we live in an age where Super Bowl commercials have their own trailers.
