    At this year's Hasty Pudding Awards, Neil Patrick Harris took Keifer Sutherland's bra-baring acceptance speech up a notch.

    Following in the footsteps of the 24 star, who accepted last year's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award wearing a bra over his tux, the acclaimed thesp hopped on stage in a black wig, lingerie and red heels to accept the 2014 honor Friday at Harvard University.

    "This is fantastic. It's been an unbelievable day," the How I Met Your Mother star said after receiving his Pudding Pot, according to People. "I've had many types of pot in my hand, but this is by far the shiniest…. I never went to college and thought you'd be super pompous and pretentious, but I've had a great time! I'm fairly hung over and I started drinking around noon, and have been having a great time."

    The Man of the Year soiree included a celebratory roast for Harris, which went down at the Ivy League's Farkas Hall—Hasty Pudding's historic home.
