Didn't expect to see an Oscar host in underwear, did ya?

Neil Patrick Harris quickly grabbed viewers' attention after the first hour of the Oscars when he decided to spoof the nominated film Birdman.

When producers went on a search to find the host backstage, they found the How I Met Your Mother star near his dressing room in a fabulous robe. All that changed, however, once he decided to take it off!

While trying to pass through a slew of reporters, Neil stripped down to his tighty-whities and even made time to visit good friend Miles Teller on the drums. Shout-out to Whiplash, everybody!

"Not my tempo," Neil shared with the real-life musician before appearing onstage in front of Hollywood's finest in his underwear and high black socks.

As soon as the moment aired, fans immediately took to Twitter and apparently, everyone was quite impressed with what was going down over there.

"Acting is a noble profession and the future of the profession is in good hands with young actors," he joked. "Like…my favorite drummer Miles Teller."

Kudos to you Neil. We certainly couldn't have done it in front of millions of people.
