Ferris was the inspiration for the Chris Moyles Breakfast Show on Radio 1.
The similarities are as followings:
Surrounded by Yes Men?
Always looking to deflect accusations?
Always taking credit for everything that goes right?
Never taking the credit for the stuff that goes wrong?
Disagreements with underlings are always dealt with with put downs?
And, to further mark as a catalyst for the general attitudes of youngsters, as schoolkids we were like "Wow! How cool was he!!!!" and yet now, as adults, we can look back and see where Cameron went wrong and followed the wrong crowd, potentially ruining his OWN life to please the replacement father figure in the shape of Ferris. Why he couldn't have just accepted that his father was an arsehole is beyond me.
He's the Stone Cold Steve Austin of the school world, you shouldn't be rooting for him but because he does all the things that you are afraid to and secretly you want to be him.
I could go on but I fear there won't be enough space in the mag to print it all lol.
