The whole Internet gif’d that moment where Guy Behind Neil Patrick Harris shuffles away, but the true magic of Guy Behind Neil Patrick Harris is how long that guy is Guy Behind Neil Patrick Harris.
Take a second and luxuriate in Guy Behind Neil Patrick Harris’s progression:
- The turn.
- The look.
- The realization.
- The hesitation, even though he knows every millisecond counts and his world is crumbling.
- Finally a glacial too-late shuffle-slide, turning him into 2013’s Homer-into-the-hedges.
So thank you, Guy Behind Neil Patrick Harris. You shared your slow dance of Internet fail with all of us and we never wanted the music to stop, even though it had to because CBS sold the next thirty seconds to Hot Pockets.
Cody thought we could gif-erize this moment better than anyone else has and doggone it he was right.
