In this phenomenal short courtesy of KickTV and Major League Soccer, Chicago Fire forward Mike Magee channels his inner Ferris Bueller and decides to skip school — er, practice — and play hookie for a day.
The “trailer” to Mike Magee’s Day Off parodies many scenes from the classic 1980s flick “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and features a loaded cast; LA Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez stars as Magee’s best friend; United States women’s national team star Sydney Leroux plays Magee’s girlfriend; Hope Solo is the jealous sister.
And that’s not all.
"World Champion" Judah Friedlander acts as Bueller’s uber-dull economics teacher (very convincingly, too), while Thierry Henry is a host at a French restaurant. Plus, MLS standouts Michael Bradley, Dwayne De Rosario and LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena all make cameos as well.
The clip ends on the famous last line of the movie, with a slight tweak:
"Life moves pretty fast," Magee says. "If you don’t stop and watch a game once in a while, you might miss it.”
