Watch Neil Patrick Harris take shots and do magic in his book trailer

NPH Choose Your Own Autobiography

Neil Patrick Harris has chosen to frame his memoir as a Choose Your Own Adventure book, and the new book trailer adheres to that same spirit, allowing viewers to choose what they want to see the multihyphenate star doing. Well, it’s not quite that interactive. Instead, you can watch little Neils simultaneously juggle, do his Hedwig and the Angry Inch vocal warm-ups, perform magic tricks, eat saltines, or take shots of “pure rubbing alcohol.” The most adorable option is obviously watching Harris and his husband, David Burtka, reenact the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp.

The memoir, titled Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, is described as a “revolutionary, Joycean experiment in light celebrity narrative, actor/personality/carbon-based life-form Neil Patrick Harris lets you, the reader, live his life.” Or, as Harris explains in the trailer, “throughout the book, at random times, you’ll get to choose what happens to you next.”
