One of the stars of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things keeps it ’80s with a re-enactment of the end of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in a spot for Domino’s Pizza.
Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington on the show, says goodbye to an apparent Sloane Peterson-inspired love interest before racing home to get his Domino’s delivery. It’s a near shot-for-shot copy of Matthew Broderick’s iconic race home to avoid getting caught skipping school in the 1986 comedy.
The Alan Ruck cameo is a nice touch. Ruck, of course, starred as Bueller’s best friend Cameron Frye in the film.
“This being an iconic movie we knew we had to pay homage to it and not deviate, not change it and put our own kind of spin on it outside of using Joe Keery and maybe making it a modern adaptation,” said Tony Calcao, exec VP-exec creative director, CP&B.
So does this mean we’re getting a remake of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off starring Keery?
