Neil Patrick Harris cast some spells, saved a life and sang a jingle before being awarded the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' annual Pudding Pot. The ''How I Met Your Mother'' star was roasted by the Harvard Universty undergraduate drama troupe, who said he was best known for 200 episodes of ''crappy'' television. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTOR, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, SAYING: "I had a blast, I got in this morning, I was fairly hungover, I started drinking around noon and having a great time." Hasty Pudding Theatricals -- the oldest college drama group in the US -- holds irreverent ceremonies every year to honor people who have made notable contributions to entertainment. And Harris certainly got into the genre. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTOR, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, SAYING: "This is fantastic, it has been an unbelievable day. I had many different types of pot in my hands, this is by far the shiniest. I don't know what to say this is super, amazing, fantastic. I never went to college and I thought you are super pompous and pretentious and you are actually lovely and caring and I have had a really fun time, so thank you very, very much!" Dressed in a wig, lingerie and red heels, Harris accepted the 2014 Man of the Year Award presented by two men in drag.
