This video was released on YouTube only yesterday and already has over 1 million views! Everyone knows and loves the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and it’s been untouched…until now. This 10 second clip doesn’t say much. All it shows is Matthew Broderick in his current form opening up the shades and saying “How can I work on a day like today?”. Then it flashes the date 2.5.12, which is the date of the Superbowl for those of you who aren’t football fans.
While the video doesn’t say exactly what’s gong to happen, it definitely gets the mind wondering. My guess is they are either making Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 2, or they are using the movie concept for some product during the commercial.
Rep. Gabby Giffords announced that she will be stepping down from Congress this week. For those of you that don’t remember, Gabby was the target of a shooting in Tuscon, Arizona that happened a little over a year ago. Along with Gifford, 18 others were wounded in the shooting, 6 of which died.
Gillford was shot in the head, and it was a miracle that she is alive. Thought she has been making great progress in recovering from the tragic event, she states that she still has a long ways to go.
In her message she says:
Arizona is my home, always will be. A lot has happened over the past year. We cannot change that. But I know on the issues we fought for we can change things for the better. Jobs, border security, veterans. We can do so much more by working together. I don’t remember much from that horrible day, but I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice. Thank you for your prayers and for giving me time to recover. I have more work to do on my recovery so to do what is best for Arizona I will step down this week. I’m getting better. Every day, my spirit is high. I will return and we will work together for Arizona and this great country. Thank you very much.”
No matter your political affiliation, this is a noble action and she deserves everyone’s respect.
Volkswagon released this teaser video for their Superbowl commercial. As you can see, it’s just a bunch of dogs “singing” the Star Wars theme song. For those of you that don’t remember, last year Volkswagon released this commercial during the Superbowl that involved a kid in a Darth Vader costume. This year’s commercial will obviously be a continuation or at least related to last year’s commercial.
