My Favorite Highway Pay Homage to John Hughes in 'Say So' Video
By Scott Tomford Posted Aug 11th 2009 12:58PM
John Hughes, and My Favorite Highway are no exception. The Virginia rockers debuted the video for their new single, 'Say So,' last month, and it's hard to deny that it took some inspiration from 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' one of Hughes' many classics that we're all taking off our DVD shelf to watch these days. The video finds the band playing hooky to have a day of hijinks and beach fun, all while using a "very contagious" case of strep throat as an excuse.
"John Hughes left a profound impact on my own generation. The joy and excitement that his stories brought to audiences around the world was evident in his unique ability to create characters and situations that will have viewers smiling for generations to come," drummer Bobby Morgenthaler tells PopEater. "While Mr. Hughes' legacy will continue to live on through his films, he will be dearly missed."
