The well-known pizza company has decided to take a stroll down nostalgia lane by allowing the ad creators to include all sorts of tiny fan-loved details from the popular 1986 movie.
Dominos decided to parody Matthew Broderick’s hilarious race home from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in a new commercial for its Tracker application – the video even comes with exquisite attention to detail that keeps the key elements of the original scene while cutting the extra worthless time from the original four-minute runtime. Plus, Dominos Spark-based DXP delivery vehicle gets a leading role. Because Broderick is an old sport now, Joe Keery (Steve Harrington in Netflix’s Stranger Things) has the pizza delivery job through suburbia.
While Bueller’s dad in the movie had an Audi 5000, Alan Ruck, who was Cameron in the original film, this time drives by in a modern A4. In a specific homage, he even has the same attire as his melancholic character from 1986. And apparently, Audi has found it funny to appear again – commenting on twitter. By the way, the advertising agency reportedly used the same house as in the movie and some backyards appear unchanged throughout time. The 60-, 30- and 15-second versions airing on television have been topped off by this extra-long cut that has the most references to the original.
