Actor reprises role as beer spokesman in TV and digital ads by W+K New York

Actor Neil Patrick Harris returns for Heineken Light in a new set of ads brewed by Wieden + Kennedy New York.

The Dutch beer brand has won best light beer at the World Beer Championships two years in a row. If that vote of confidence is not enough, the "How I Met Your Mother" actor says Heinken will give your money back if not satisfied in a 30-second TV spot.

A longer video has a flummoxed Harris is hounded by "fans" in a grocery store. He explains both the legality of alcohol refunds by state and his resume extends beyond a Heineken spokesman.

A supporting website besttastinglight.com provides more details on the campaign and offer.
