More likely it's a marketing video for a Super Bowl commercial.
That's right, a trailer for a commercial .

Am I missing something here? It's just a commcercial with a funny Ferris vibe. What's the problem? Where's the nonsense? I don't get the 'trailer for a commercial' outrage. Sorry guys, I mean no disrespect, I just don't see what's the big deal.

Or I suppose "lame" is the better word.
First, impression is that Broderick is just too old - not just in looks but in energy and timing. I think it was Joe Flaherty of Second City (now quite old himself) who pointed out that comics and comedic actors can "get old" like athletes because comedy does take a certain sense of fleetness and timing that can leave you when you get old.
Broderick looks like that: tired, slow, not invested, no zip. His performance is a drag.
Just as bad is the utterly uninspired "gags" (I was actually waiting for one) and awful direction. The only close-to-funny part was staring at the walrus. Otherwise...flat..flat..flat...
I'd never see a movie if they made one, based on seeing that commercial.

I don't know how many are like me, but I never saw the Ferris Bueller movie. The clip did nothing for me. There could be humor with a guy taking off work and running into his boss, but that's a tired old canard and for me, it needs to offer something a lot more then what I saw in this commercial. Perhaps the humor is how the scenes relate to the original, but for me, it's simply contrived and, in my case, humorless.
