Down the Tubes: Zach King’s Magical Day Off – A Ferris Bueller Parody

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland.

I think one of the most popular ’80s films to parody is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. A few years ago, Dominos did a commercial with Stranger Things star Joe Keery at the height of the show’s popularity. And even Matthew Broderick has stepped back into character for a past Super Bowl spot. Director John Hughes created a film that continues to have a foothold in the pop culture stream.

Zach King, a popular YouTuber and Optical Illustionist who specializes in digitally edited magic tricks, recently released a short parody film on his channel. If you’re a fan of magic and Ferris Bueller, you are definitely going to want to watch this to brighten up your day.

You’re still here? It’s over. Go to the comments. Go.
