Neil Patrick Harris and Britney Spears as a couple? It had never crossed our minds, but even we have to admit this is a pretty cute shot.

The pic comes from the May 12 episode of How I Met Your Mother, in which Brit reprises her role as Abby the receptionist.

"I had such a great experience the last time I was on the show that I couldn't wait to come back," says Brit. "I was really looking forward to working with this cast and crew again."

Now if we can just get her to do a duet with Robin Sparkles, that would be golden.
