As to not upset hardcore John Hughes fans who might see it as an unwanted blight on the man's legacy, Honda's Super Bowl XLVI TV spot finds actor Matthew Broderick taking the day off from shooting his latest film to partake in a few extracurricular activities, proving that he is more like his 1986 alter ego than anyone else he has ever played.
