Ferris Bueller - In popular culture - Netflix

After its use in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off — an “incredibly infectious song” from which it became virtually known as 'the Ferris Bueller song' — the song was used in various other film soundtracks through the end of the decade and developed a reputation as a 1980s Hollywood cliche. It was prominently used in the 1987 film, The Secret of My Success. Film critic Jonathan Bernstein observed that despite never reaching hit status, the song “has become synonymous with lust. Every time a movie, TV show or commercial wants to underline the jaw-dropping impact of a hot babe or sleek auto, that synth-drum starts popping and that deep voice rumbles, 'Oh yeah…”. A 2014 article on The Dissolve website, suggests the song is used to metaphorically represent lust (in various forms) and cocaine. In Clarence Episode 1, a parody called “Aw Snap” is used at the near end of the episode. It was part of the soundtrack in She's Out of Control and Opportunity Knocks. The song became a conceit on The Simpsons, being used when Duffman appears; an idiomatic staple in video games; and a repeated choice in television advertisements. Matthew Broderick reprised his Bueller role in a Honda commercial aired during the Super Bowl in which “Oh Yeah” was featured. A teaser for the ad had appeared two weeks prior to the Super Bowl, which had created rumors of a possible film sequel. It was produced by Santa Monica-based RPA and directed by Todd Phillips. AdWeek's Tim Nudd called the ad “a great homage to the original 1986 film, with Broderick this time calling in sick to a film shoot and enjoying another day of slacking.” On the other hand, Jalopnik's Matt Hardigree called the spot “sacrilegious”. Among the dozens of commercials, it has been used to advertise Twix. The song was also famous in New Zealand for being used to advertise the now defunct DEKA retail stores in the late 1990s to 2001. In the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode “Sweet Dee Has a Heart Attack”, Mac identifies the song as “Day bow bow”. The North American release of the racing game Gran Turismo 4 included “Oh Yeah” as part of its in-game jukebox, and plays the song whenever the player fails a License Test. “Oh Yeah” was used in a Domino's Pizza Commercial in 2017. The commercial is a reference to Ferris Bueller's Day Off; It is a perfect example of a repurposed pop song. The song was used in the 2017 film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. The song was also used in the American Dad! episode “The 42-Year-Old Virgin.” A pedophile drives by the house in his truck selling ice cream. The music switches from the standard ice cream truck music into “Oh Yeah” as the man stops to let Steve and his friends into the truck and taking them away to a water park while Stan watches with an open mouth and lifting his sunglasses to observe the scene. The song was also used as the opening theme song for the Australian TV panel show, Show Me the Movie!.
