FERRIS IS SICK: So is Matthew Broderick’s Super Bowl commercial, in the good way. Check out the video above. 

 SPEAKING OF SUPER BOWL ADS, HERE ARE TWO NOTABLES:

• Apple’s 1984 Macintosh yarn. http://bit.ly/9GCJuB

• Coke’s 1980 piece with Joe Green and the little kid. http://bit.ly/3js5BG

SPEAKING OF SUPER BOWL ADS II: Something of a history lesson (with numerous video samples), per MSNBC, “They appear out of nowhere, as out-of-place as organic cheese on your nachos at the stadium concession stand. Serious Super Bowl ads play on emotions instead of humor or sex appeal. They are generally few and far between, and if they bomb, they have the potential to bomb in a very big way.” http://on.msnbc.com/z29KFv

SPEAKING OF SUPER BOWL ADS III: Here’s one YouTube contributor’s compilation of the 25 best buzz starters. http://bit.ly/zGcGM9

KARDASHIANETTES: Otherwise known as the Jenner sisters, per Celebuzz, “Kendall and Kylie Jenner are stepping into the spotlight and just snagged their first major magazine cover for Teen Vogue. The 14 and 16-year-old half sisters to Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian will appear in the March issue in a full pictorial and interview.” http://bit.ly/wFCCn2

FOOT IN THE DOOR: Make of the most of it, ‘Idol’ contestants; this guy has, per the Los Angeles Times, “(Show) alumnus Constantine Maroulis proved that he had bona fide acting and singing talent when he made his Broadway debut in 2009 in the musical "Rock of Ages." Now Maroulis has lined up his next Broadway role in a revival of the musical "Jekyll & Hyde," which will first tour the country starting in the Los Angeles area.” http://lat.ms/zLdVae

FISH BOWL: This time, it’s Demi’s daughter, Rumer Willis, per People, “Following Demi Moore's hospitalization last week and decision to seek professional treatment for exhaustion, her daughter – and frequent party companion – was in full social mode, enjoying a busy weekend out and about in Los Angeles.” http://bit.ly/w5vznK

MINI CONCERT TOUR: How big of them, per Rolling Stone, “Guns N' Roses skipped New York City during their extensive 2011 U.S. tour, but they're making up for it this February by playing three clubs around the city.” http://bit.ly/yc8eqk

MUSICAL STUMPING: Willie Nelson plays in support of Rep. Dennis Kucinich, per the AP, “Nelson performed a sold-out benefit for the congressman on Sunday in Lorain, about 25 miles west of Cleveland. The star previously campaigned for Kucinich during his long-shot bids for president.” http://apne.ws/wi13z7
