Conan O’Brien to Appear on How I Met Your Mother as a Background Extra


Last night, Neil Patrick Harris was on Conan to be charming, and he told a story about how Coco bid for a background role on How I Met Your Mother at a charity auction and ended up winning. So now Conan is going to just be at the bar sitting there drinking next season on the show. And he said that “the producers were saying, ‘We’ll write you in as a character.’ But I think it’s much funnier if I’m just in the bar, in the background.” He is right! The story starts around the 4:44 mark in the above video.
