In a pretty down year as far as Super Bowl commercials go, Honda's "Ferris Bueller" ad was among the worst. It failed to live up to the hype, and the company seemed to grossly miscalculate how irrelevant this movie is to a large majority of the population. But despite the disappointment, Ben Stein, one of the stars of the original movie, feels slighted that he wasn't asked to be involved, according to TMZ.
Stein told TMZ, "They had a guy imitating my voice, they should've had me in it." And he continued by saying, "Just my humble opinion, but since they used my voice ... they should give me a top of the line Honda."
We can't fault him for being pretty peeved at the notion of being ignored for a commercial that was seen by millions of people. But after watching the ad again, we think Stein might have been lucky to have nothing to do with this mess. We would take writing speeches for a disgraced President over showing up in a tacky commercial any day.
