Video: Ferris Bueller returns to promote the 2012 Honda CR-V

A couple of days ago, we saw a teaser of a Super Bowl XLVI commercial featuring Matthew Broderick. Honda today confirmed that the commercial will be promoting the new 2012 Honda CR-V.

“Our primary goal is to support the launch of the all-new CR-V, a pillar vehicle in the Honda lineup, while representing the inherent fun and youthfulness of the Honda brand,” said Tom Peyton, Honda brand manager, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Matthew’s Day off is a parody of the famous movie Ferris Bueller’s Day off. Honda says that the campaign is a integrated part of a new campaign that supports launch of the CR-V.
