If you’re like me (and many people) you were excited early this week by the prospect of there being a possible sequel to Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. Only to have that hope squashed into absolute nothingness when this commercial was released.

Anyone else bummed that there won’t be a sequel?

Got to hand it to Honda. Their marketing team succeeded at making this commercial go viral. Its been chatted up; shared vastly in the media. The conversations are flowing and everyone is now remembering the Honda name. Job well done, Beuller.

    Oh man, I did NOT hear that, so you just raised my hopes and let me down all in a few sentences! 🙁

    Never say Never. If they can remake 21 Jump Street, they can do anything, LOL.

    You’re absolutely right. There’s always a possibility for a sequel. This marketing attempt was well played by Honda and has set a very high bar.

    Out of the media loop again, but I bet the marketing team is getting a big bonus on this one for getting people talking!

    Thanks for participating in SASS, hope to see you again next week

    Thanks for posting this, as I hadn’t seen it before. Very cute commercial. But yes, such a let down to think there will never be a sequel. – SASS
