At the 2013 World Beer Championships, Heineken Light was named the 'Best Tasting Low Calorie Lager' and this funny Heineken beer commercial starring Neil Patrick Harris celebrates the win.

There are tons of beer commercials on TV, but have you ever noticed that the people in the ads never actually drink the beer? This is due to a US law that forbids the consumption of alcoholic beverages during television commercials. Playing off this idea, the commercial features a NPH making a passionate plea to be able to take a sip of the award-winning beer for the commercial. The funny ad concludes with a note reiterating that: "No beers were consumed during the making of this commercial." Stats for Compliant Beer Ads Trending: Older & Mild
