Neil Patrick Harris Wins Again With ‘Frosty the Inappropriate Snowman’

Listen, we love the purity and innocence of the Rankin/Bass Christmas specials as much as the next guy. Each and every winter, we mix up a batch of hot toddies and get our nostalgia on while watching Rudolph, Santa Claus, and the rest of the familiar cast of characters work their holiday magic. However, unlike those fuddy-duddies over at Mediaite, we don't take any issue with CBS's decision to create an official mash-up in which Frosty the Snowman's voice is replaced with bon mots spewed by the lovably caddish Barney Stinson (of How I Met Your Mother fame, obvs). Sure, it's a little bit on the dirty side and definitely not for the kiddies, but in our eyes, NPH and Rankin/Bass are two great tastes that definitely taste great together.
