Adam Levine spoofs 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' — and it's perfect

Levine? ... Levine?

A new sketch for the Season 11 finale of "The Voice" that perfectly parodies "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" sees Adam Levine channeling the expert hooky-player.

The hilarious spoof, "Adam Levine's Day Off," begins with the "Voice" coach justifying his decision to shirk his promotional duties for the NBC series by invoking the wisdom of Bueller himself.

"How can I be expected to handle press on a day like this?" Levine asks. He then adds, "Ferris Bueller said, 'Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.'"

Of course, in this version, our hero isn't trying to avoid Dean Rooney, but rather one of his fellow "Voice" coaches.

"I love doing press," Levine assures us. "I just hate Blake Shelton."

Ben Stein, whose deadpan delivery as an oblivious economics teacher was one of the original '80s flick's hallmarks, even makes a cameo.
