Neil Patrick Harris Can't Get His Drink on in New Heineken Light Campaign

But He Just Wants a Sip, Guys

Editor's Pick

Actor and all-round funnyman Neil Patrick Harris can't get his drink on and makes a huge deal about it in this new campaign for Heineken Light, created out of Wieden + Kennedy, New York.

The brand was dubbed "best tasting low calorie lager" at the 2013 World Beer Championships, but unfortunately, Mr. Harris can't partake in its deliciousness because American alcohol regulations forbid spokespeople from drinking on camera.

Throughout the ad, Mr. Harris stands on his mark as instructed, slim new Heineken Light in hand, attempting to thwart the rules, only to be foiled by the director. So no beer for you, NPH. Unless he goes out of frame, which he does in this 15 second clip from the campaign.
