Last night was the best night ever, right fellow How I Met Your Mother fans? We got to watch Robin and Barney hilariously wallow in grief over being all by themselves, Ted and Barney travel back to the 18th century to share their sexless innkeeper-centric tales of ribaldry (“It’s a poem!”), and — best of all — Marshall present his series of musical video montages. (Though, as one of EW’s resident crazy cat ladies, I did observe a moment of silence for Lily’s mom’s kitty. Poor, poor kitty.)
So today, I went on CBS’ website to find a clip of Marshall’s ridiculous montages — only to find something even better: a clip of Marshall performing his song “It Was the Best Night Ever” with Extreme lead guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. Seriously, could they find anything better to combine? One of my favorite shows + the writer of the first song I ever learned on guitar, “More Than Words” = awesome. The only thing that could possibly make this better is if I could reach into my screen and pull out some Marshall-approved gouda Wonkavision-style.
Love the clip, HIMYM fans? What’s your favorite moment from last night’s show? And is it just coincidence that Marshall is rocking the same flow-y white shirt as David Brent in his “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” music video?
