Nice. That was satisfying. (The bit with the panda in the car was my favorite.) What did the license plate say? I couldnt' read it.
The license plate reads "SOCHOIC." I'm wondering how they're going to cut it down to 60 seconds. It's also interesting they've released it early, given that it takes the surprise factor out of it, though I know Kia is doing something similar with its ad (a 3-4 second "teaser" has been playing in movie theatres, and the full ad will play in theatres this weekend).
Awesome. Loved every moment.
Was that Sarah Jessica Parker's voice on the phone in the car?
Did anyone else have a momentary disconnect when you realize the day he is escaping is another day of being paid to be in movies?
I kept hoping he'd stop to pick up Cameron.
Alan Ruck was great in one of Justified's best standalone episodes, during the first season. I really wish they had at least referenced him.
I think one of the main reason Ferris Bueller's Day Off has held up so well is that it's a comedy that's positively spun, with a generosity of spirit you don't tend to get all that often. The moment that worked best for me in the ad was just Matthew Broderick goofing around with the kids in the museum. Just delightful.
Yes! that's what I thought....It says "Grace" on the bluetooth screen.
Guest was me.
I thought I would have an issue with him hocking for anything besides the city of Chicago, but I really just liked it. It has the same lovely spirit as the movie.
I know we've talked about this in other threads, but Ferris Bueller is one of the few high school movies from John Hughes that really holds up. I still stop and watch it whenever I stumble across it on cable, and I remember being 16 when it came out and thinking that the Ferris, Sloane and Cameron were going through the same things I was going through--leaving for college, figuring out how to be a grown-up, family crap, etc. Love the ad, and I liked the LA locations. As much as I miss my Chicago spots, it felt like an extension instead of a remake. I'm a little bummed that "Ferris" drives a sensible CR-V in his middle years, but maybe that's more of me projecting.
Grace was Ed Rooney's secretary in Ferris.
Loved it, but would it have killed them to throw Cameron and Sloan a bone? Even a cameo?
I think the problem may be that once you add Cameron, you start thinking about Cameron's Dad's car, and the CRV kind of suffers in comparison.
And if you go Fight Club on it and assume that Ferris is just a physical manifestation of Cameron's desires, then damn, his life turned out even sadder than I thought, move star is nice, but escaping it to relive his youth while driving a CRV is not.
You do have a Cameron reference by the guy wearing a Red Wings sweater behind Ferris on the roller coaster.
Of course! Nice! But it sounds like SJP.
The cameo was the Red Wings jersey on the guy in the roller coaster back one row on the left. It appears that they got the angle on the winged wheel right this time.--bd
