    If you're one of those people who watch the Super Bowl "for the commercials," then get ready to be very excited indeed.

    A teaser video has popped up online starring Matthew Broderick that has the internet in a tizzy. The 49-year-old appears in what looks to be a hotel room, wearing a bathrobe. He flips open the curtains, looks directly at the camera, and says, "How am I supposed to handle work on a day like today?" Cue a few bars of the iconic song "Oh Yeah" by Yello, which served as a theme song for the film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." 

    The mysterious video, posted by chuckachucka2012, is accompanied by a caption which reads: 

    "We hate to be such a tease, but on a day like today, we just have to. Stick it out until the Super Bowl, or take a 'day off' on Monday and catch the big reveal."

    Is it a new movie? Not likely, although Broderick has certainly been open to the idea. Still, the internet has been running rampant with speculation that it could be an add for a travel site (like Travelocity) or perhaps even Pepsi (noting the similarity in the font used).

    Looks like we'll have to wait and see...
