Stranger Things star channels Ferris Bueller in Domino's ads
Domino’s Pizza is delivering a double dose of ’80s nostalgia with a new ad campaign that features Stranger Things star Joe Keery channeling Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
In a spot titled “Home for Pizza,” Keery — who plays cool kid Steve on Stranger Things — recreates the climactic Ferris Bueller scene in which Broderick’s slacker hero races home to avoid getting caught skipping school. This time around, Keery has a smartwatch and is heading back to meet the pizza guy, but otherwise the sprint is a faithful reproduction, including the moment when he doubles back to chat up two bikini-clad sunbathers. There’s also a nice cameo from one of the cast members of the 1986 John Hughes film.
Another commercial finds Keery re-enacting Broderick’s opening monologue, complete with a shampoo-slicked mohawk.
