Call Barney Stinson Superbowl Ad 1-877-987-6401

I’m sure you saw the ad featuring Neil Patrick Harris as his womanizing How I Met Your Mother character, Barney Stinson telling you to call 1-877-987-6401. Did you get through? I did, and here is what it said:

That, Lebron, is how you shoot a free throw. Hey, Barney Stinson speaking. A recording? No, this is really me! Anyway, glad you called ’cause you sound really special. Let’s get to know each other. What are your hobbies? Oh my god, I like that too! Wow, I’m really feeling a connection here. You know, I never do this but what the heck. Let’s meet up at MacLaren’s Bar at oh, say, 3:45 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 12, 2016. I can’t wait to meet you. I love you.

I’m wondering if this has anything to do with the narrative of How I Met Your Mother, and if it will be refrenced at all within the show. Needless to say, it was pretty entertaining, and it drummed up a bit of publicity for one of my favorite shows on network TV.

UPDATE: Apparently this is going to tie into tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother.

Suit up folks!

Also, Step one lose the mustache it doesn’t match your suit.  You aren’t wearing one? Step Two buy a suit.

    I couldn’t get through, but I was so excited to see a great promo like that for How I met Your Mother. It’s one of my favorite shows too! I was disappointed in most of the ads they showed yesterday, but Barney was by far the best!

    On HIMYM tonight they started by watching the Super Bowl and seeing Barney on the ad. Only, the phone number was actually different! A 555, of course, so you couldn’t call. But that’s all pretty clever in my book.
