Spice up Your Life with Neil Patrick Harris


Not only can Neil Patrick Harris convincingly play a heterosexual womanizer on TV, he can also hawk traditionally macho brands to consumers. Harris appears in a really great ad for Old Spice antiperspirant in this month’s GQ (p. 47).

The ad references back to his Doogie days, reading, as he’s pictured placing a stethoscope on a patient’s nose: “Body odor protection recommended by former TV doctors, like me.”

It also reads, in the small print, “Take it from me, I used to be a fake doctor.”

(AfterElton also spotted the ad in Entertainment Weekly)

    Although I love my NPS’s good sense of self-deprecation and I always sit up when he speaks, I would like to believe that he would never have tolerated such bad grammar had he been allowed to proof-read that punch line first. Use a semi-colon, people, and stop the run-ons!

    Larry, doth the lady protest too much? “Withered troll” indeed. Looking in the mirror, are we?

    NPH is hot, funny, smart and endearing. The world would be better with more like him

  3. Harrison says

    There are so few people in the world who make me as giddy as a five year old upon sight. NPH is one of them. The more of him we see, the better.
