Ferris Bueller returns to Wrigley Field

Ferris Bueller returns to Wrigley Field

October 3rd, 2011 in News

CHICAGO (AP) - Ferris Bueller has returned to Wrigley Field, though this time he didn't have to cut class. And he helped set a world record.

The 1986 film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" about three truant teenagers' adventures around Chicago was screened Saturday night at the historic baseball field. The event helped mark the film's 25th anniversary.

The trio attends a Chicago Cubs game at the park in one scene. In another, Ferris lip syncs "Danke Schoen" after getting onto a parade float.

Prompted by that classic scene, more than 900 viewers sang the song before the screening. A representative from the Guinness Book of World Records confirms it broke the previous 500-person record for the most people singing in a round.

The screening was the first of its kind at Wrigley Field.
