Neil Patrick Harris is known for being many things: actor, writer, producer, director, singer and award show host. In the latest campaign for Heineken Light, much to his chagrin, Harris is only known among his fans as a beer pitchman.
Using Harris as a reluctant pitchman is part of Heineken's latest attempt to reboot the Heineken Light brand. Harris first appeared in Heineken Light ads last summer.
As part of the new campaign, Heineken is turning to one of the oldest pitches in marketing, the money-back guarantee.
"At Heineken, we believe that you don't need to sacrifice taste when drinking a light beer" said Ralph Rijks, vice president of Heineken USA, in a statement. "We're so confident in Heineken Light's award-winning flavor that we're putting our money where our mouth is."
