Oregon Duck Goes Full "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" for Art Competition

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 28, 2013

Oregon's Duck Puddles decided to tout an art competition and take a nod to one of the greatest movies ever made, Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Throw the Flag (h/t With Leather) spotted this video of Puddles hitting the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art with a faux Cameron and faux Sloane for some art viewing. 

The video starts with the same melody you might recognize from the John Hughes movie, The Dream Academy's "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want," and the trio take on the museum much like the Art Institute of Chicago. 

All the classic poses are included, and the Duck even gets his romance on at the 1:15 mark. I was only hoping for him to hop on the street to sing an impromptu "Danke Schoen" in front of thousands of fans. 

It all ends with a Washington Huskies painting getting destroyed, as you might expect with the impetus behind this whole video being shown. 

For those with the ability and the will, the Oregon Ducks are holding a fine arts competition with first place getting a cool $15,000. 

That's all well and good, but the truly important part of this video is keeping classic movies alive. I am sick and tired, America—sick of remakes and tired of lesser movies being made. 

Just this past Halloween, I was in line for the bathroom at a bar, standing behind a guy dressed in Cobra Kai gear. 

A young lady asked him who he was supposed to be and he offered, "Cobra Kai, from Karate Kid." Then she answered, "I don't know that movie. Oh, you mean with Will Smith's kid?"

The heart weeps. 

Go ahead, college fans. Make your art and win your prizes, but never forget.
