Say It Ain't So, Ferris!

By now, you've no doubt seen this commercial that spread across the web last week of what looked to be Matthew Broderick bringing back his Ferris Bueller character.

When I first saw the 10-second teaser, I was admittedly excited.

My mind raced with all of the possibilities of what a big-budget "Ferris Bueller" Super Bowl commercial might entail.

Surely, we'd see Cameron Frye, Ed Rooney, Sloane Peterson... heck, I wouldn't even mind seeing Ben Stein show up to say "Bueller... Bueller... Bueller" a few times.

In my head, I built up this commercial to be one of the greatest pop culture moments of the decade!

But after watching it today... there was no Cameron, no Mr. Rooney and actually there wasn't even a Ferris.  Matthew Broderick was playing himself going though some scenes that vagely looked like they could have come from the original movie.

I realized that the term "anticipointment" isn't just for theme park rides.  Sigh.
