Intern Bren’s Team Pick: Ferris Bueller’s Last Day Off

Twenty-five years ago, when the world was shiny and new, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off hit the theaters.

Did ya ever wonder what became of young Ferris? Well, he grew up and the funny people of Sidecar have put together a video of what a “sick” day might look like for everybody’s favorite truant in 2011.

Its chock full of white dudes, but, I mean, its Ferris Bueller.


I think Jeannie would be satisfied with the way things turned out.

  1. thanks for the post! this is what the year right after college must feel like

    and seeing gilbert gottfried reminds me of the aristocrats (p.s. it’s really dirty)

    the sarah silverman one is good too

  2. Okay, sue me, but I fucking loved Ferris Bueller when I saw it for the first time at 14. I laughed, but that video mostly just made me really sad. :/
    Also, did anyone see the “leaked Ferris Bueller 2” script? That shit was terrible!

    … and just to add one more nail in my social coffin, Save Ferris is one of my favorite bands.

    • I have pretty much the same feelings as you. This video made me sad because I love Ferris Bueller and I don’t want him to be an adult loser. :(

  3. That guy looks hella like Cameron.

    …Is that the voice of Iago from the Lion King? Because if it’s not… that’s weird, and amazing, either way.

    Anyway funny stuff.

      • yep, gilbert gottfried was the voice of iago, and until he made some tasteless japanese tsunami jokes that got him fired he was also the voice of the aflac duck.

  4. Guys, no lie. I wish Ferris Bueller WAS that hot chick that Rooney approached in the bar/arcade… because then Ferris and I would be romantically compatible.

  5. The house that they filmed the garage scenes in the movie at is just up the road from me… i totally loved the movie, even have a car similar to the one they used in the original, (video of my car in the garage from the movie here: ) but hafta agree that the thought in this of Ferris being a slacker 25 years later saddened me too.
