Ferris Bueller is back -- and this time, he's driving a Honda. As Jalopnik reported last week, Honda was indeed behind the 10-second teaser video that was put up on YouTube, and the carmaker has now released a 2-minute, extended version of the ad that will appear during the Super Bowl this Sunday.

In the clip, out of agency RPA, Matthew Broderick celebrates the launch of the 2012 Honda CR-V by playing truant and calling in sick to his agent (sound familiar?). Then, he goes off and lives it up. According to Honda, there are over two dozen movie references hidden throughout the Todd Phillips-directed commercial. Using #dayoff, find them all.
