Neil Patrick Harris not drinking Heineken Light

Heineken USA is running an advertising campaign featuring actor Neil Patrick Harris not drinking Heineken Light beer. Due to complicated broadcast regulations, Neil Patrick Harris is not allowed to drink Heineken Light, winner of the 2013 World Beer Championship’s Best Tasting Light Beer, in Heineken’s commercials. But trust us, if he did drink it, he would enjoy it tremendously, but not on camera.
