Like Ferris Bueller, Everybody's Got A Hooky Story

"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" turns 30 and, as we found out, fans of the movie have some of their own stories to tell about playing hooky from school.
Like Ferris Bueller, Everybody's Got A Hooky Story

Thirty years ago, film director John Hughes introduced us to Ferris Bueller in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." The movie is about a high schooler who fakes sick to stay home from school, convinces his best friend to borrow his dad's Ferrari, poses as someone else, crashes a parade and makes it back home before his parents.

So, basically truancy and hooliganism.

We went to Daley Plaza in Chicago during a re-creation of the Von Steuben Day parade to talk to fans about the movie. We discovered that many parade-goers had their own stories to tell about skipping school. 

This video includes clips from Paramount Pictures / "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
