call barney stinson super bowl Super Bowl: Call Barney Stinson at 1 877 987 6401Did you get through on “How I Met Your Mother’s” Barney Stinson’s line during the Super Bowl?

If you dial 1-877-987-6401, the number from the Call Barney Stinson sign “held up” during the Super Bowl, you’ll get a lovely recording of Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson setting up a time to meet.

That, Lebron, is how you shoot a free throw. Hey, Barney Stinson speaking. A recording? No, this is really me! Anyway, glad you called ’cause you sound really special. Let’s get to know each other. What are your hobbies? Oh my god, I like that too! Wow, I’m really feeling a connection here. You know, I never do this but what the heck. Let’s meet up at MacLaren’s Bar at oh, say, 3:45 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 12, 2016. I can’t wait to meet you. I love you.

We wish there was a real MacLaren’s Bar we could visit. We bet that on Monday, Oct. 12, 2016 there’d be at least a few “How I Met Your Mother” fans there.

“How I Met Your Mother” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Apparently, there will be some follow-up to the Super Bowl phone number on the next episode.
