If you were a teen in 1986, prepare to freak out ... because Ferris Bueller is set to make an appearance during this year's Super Bowl. Chuckachucka2012 has posted a 10-second teaser of a commercial that will apparently air during the game, and though Matthew Broderick may look a little older, it's bound to take you back. The actor throws open the curtains and utters his famous line, with a small twist: "How can I handle work on a day like today?" It ends with a flash of "2.5.12" (the Super Bowl date) and the film's iconic "chicka chicka" music.

The video's caption seems to indicate that more info will be released on Monday. It reads: "We hate to be such a tease, but on a day like today, we just have to. Stick it out until the Super Bowl, or take a 'day off' on Monday and catch the big reveal." Writing for the AV Club, Marah Eakin ponders what it could be a commercial for, and comes up with a few ideas: something travel-related (hence the no working), something work-related (like a Microsoft product), or Pepsi (because of the font used). But Eakin thinks it's definitely not an ad for another movie. "The suggestive 'chicka chicka' music could have been added in just for this YouTube link to purposely drive the Internet into a frenzy over a product ad no one would give two shits about otherwise."
