Stranger Things Actor Stars In This Domino’s Pizza Ad That Riffs On A Famous ’80s Movie

Domino’s Pizza has recruited Stranger Things actor Joe Keery for a new commercial that riffs on the ’80s movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In the new spot, titled “Home For Pizza,” Keery makes a mad dash home just as Matthew Broderick did to avoid getting caught playing hooky. Keery’s quest is to make it home in time to meet the delivery person (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Keery sprints through a neighborhood, vaulting over shrubbery and even snagging a drink from a neighbor and stopping to chat with bikini-wearing sunbathers, just like Broderick did in the movie. Actor Alan Ruck, who played Bueller’s friend Cameron in the movie, has a cameo in this ad–and of course, he’s wearing his Detroit Red Wings jersey. For comparison, you can watch the race home scene from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off here on YouTube.

This new Domino’s ad promotes the pizza company’s tracking service that gives you updates on the status of your pie as it makes its way from the oven to your home. A 15-second version of this trailer will air on TV.

It’s not the only commercial that Domino’s created starring Keery and riffing on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. A second one (below) takes on Broderick’s opening, fourth-wall-breaking monologue from the film, but again, with a pizza theme.

In other news about Domino’s, the company is letting some people order pizza with special shoes.

As for Stranger Things, which is set in the ’80s, the show returns for a second season on Halloween this year. The first trailer was released during Super Bowl LI earlier this month and can be seen here.
