We were pretty excited after watching the 10 second teaser, and the full-length ad doesn’t disappoint. It stars Matthew Broderick, who calls into work sick and enjoys a day off in his Honda CR-V.

At the 54 second mark the name appearing on the CR-V’s screen is Grace, Rooney’s secretary in the original film. At 57 seconds there is a flower delivery man who walks through the shot and at the 1 minute mark there is a trench coat clad clarinet player in the background. Can you spot any more ties to the original film?

Honda went all out to make this ad, which includes hiring “The Hangover” writer/director Todd Phillips to bring this vision together.
