Neil Patrick Harris: Gee Whiz

January 28, 2009 7:05 AM

Last night at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' panel for "How I Met Your Mother," Neil Patrick Harris rushed off stage in the middle of the discussion to use the restroom.

He just forgot one thing: His mic was still on.

As the panelists and audience erupted into gasping-for-air laughter, one could hear Mr. Harris tell someone he just had to use the bathroom and what sounded like a door.

Co-star Jason Segal declared it the greatest thing that's ever happened to any of them, while the pregnant Alyson Hannigan complained that she had had to pee since the panel started, but wasn't rushing off.

Mr. Harris eventually returned while a gag reel was playing with a stream of toilet paper sticking out of the back of his pants.

Stay tuned to the Daily Blink for a full recap of the night's festivities.
