Neil Patrick Harris has another Oscar promo for you and, keeping with the holiday theme, this one has some 2015 suggestions for you.
“It’s that time of year when we start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Top three being eat less, exercise more and watch me host the Oscars,” Harris says at the opening of the promo.
The actor enters the frame as though out for a leisurely stroll — in front of the row of giant Oscar statues that seems to just keep going. They definitely look regal against the white backdrop and Harris’ fitted suit. Not that we had any doubt Harris could pull off a suit. (Binge-watch the entirety of How I Met Your Mother if you had a smidgen of doubt.)
Harris closes out the promo with the hopeful encouragement, “Let’s be realistic, you’re not going to eat less.”
But of the three resolutions Harris suggests, there’s no doubt he very much expects you to fulfill one of them, and it doesn’t have anything to do with food.
This is the second Oscar promo Harris has released in preparation for his hosting gig. The first suggested that instead of getting presents for your kids for Christmas, you gift them with watching him host the Oscars.
We can’t decide which suggestion is more amusing.
Luckily for everyone everywhere, watching Harris host the Oscars doesn’t have to be an ultimatum that competes with you enjoying the holidays. ABC will provide his handsome face free of charge for your viewing pleasure.
