Alan Ruck is reviving one of his earliest and easily most beloved roles.
A new TV commercial for LiftMaster garage door openers recreates the iconic scene from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, in which Ferris (Matthew Broderick) and Cameron (Ruck) step into the glass-walled garage housing the car they’re about to take on an epic joyride: a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, which Cameron’s dad spent three years restoring.
In the new commercial, a pair of teenagers enter the garage and see the same car, and share their own plans to take it for a spin. As it turns out, they are not Ferris and Cameron, but the circumstances are identical.

Just as the teens are about to get in the vehicle, a voice is heard in the garage: “Don’t even think about it.”
One of the teens is then seen on a phone, which features an aerial view of the garage. “Uh, hi dad,” he says while looking up at the ceiling.
“Dad” is revealed to be Ruck, presumably playing a now-grown Cameron, watching what’s taking place thanks to his garage door opener’s built-in security camera.
“Been there, done that,” says Ruck, who is currently playing eldest Roy sibling Connor in HBO’s critically acclaimed series “Succession”.

Common garage door repair related FAQ
How long does it take to replace a garage door?
Roughly 3 to 4 hours, if done properly.
How often should my a garage door be serviced?
Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.
How long do garage door springs usually last?
The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 cycles (one opening and one closing is a cycle.)
What is the life span of a garage door opener?
The average life span of a door opener can vary from 10 to 20 years depending on the model and usage.
