There’s no question that Neil Patrick Harris is one of the most versatile stars around. From legendary stints on TV and in film to hosting the world’s most important awards shows like the Emmys, Tonys and Oscars, Harris’ IMDb page is an exercise in “Oh yeah, he was great in that.” He can now add one more credit to the impressively prolific list: commercial producer/director/star/craft services.
