A good old classic brought to life
Honda brings the 80's cult classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" to life in their new launch campaign for the new CR-V model. In the old classic, we follow the young boy Ferris Bueller taking a day off from school calling in "sick". Having a wild day through the big city of New York, while chased by his mad principal. Matthew Broderick in the role that made him famous. In Honda's campaign he plays himself, who reports sick from his job as an actor. We then follow him through the city in his new CR-Vs while hes reliving his old "day off". His final message, which also is to be seen as a tribute to the driving pleasure and comfort in the CR-V, is that you must remember to enjoy life!
The film works really well with original music and the mood. The video contains numerous intertextual references to the original, some clearer than others. Are you a true fan of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"? See how many references you can find!
