Neil Patrick Harris's 'Puppet Dreams'

Posted on

Following in the footsteps of South Park, 30 Rock, and numerous others, Neil Patrick Harris has taken a stab at To Catch a Predator.

In the new YouTube video, “To Catch a Puppeteer,” the How I Met Your Mother star attempts to satisfy his puppet fetish, only to be accosted by a fuzzy Chris Hansen. It’s part of series called “Neil’s Puppet Dreams,” which is produced by Nerdist, a digital entertainment conglomerate founded by comedian and Wired writer Chris Hardwick.

Harris introduces each segment with, “Hi, I’m Neil, and I sleep a lot. And when I dream, I dream in puppet,” before launching into a puppet-themed adventure.

Why don’t you have a seat, and watch the video after the jump.
