Neil Patrick Harris posts hilarious drinking photos on Instagram

Actor Neil Patrick Harris apparently had a great time in Mexico, and he decided to share some of the photos on his Instagram account.

There is a picture of the 40-year-old actor surrounded by empty glasses while sprawled on a beach, a picture of him floating face down in a pool with a margarita glass on the edge, and several others.

Harris also tweeted throughout the last day of his Mexican vacation.

He began the day of documentation by tweeting: "Last day of our Mexico adventure. Let's see just how many margaritas I can drink. Cheers!"

However, some of the tweets are suspiciously close together. Margaritas #7, #12 and #17 all seemed to be consumed within a span of an hour.

That would be some serious drinking though, so it's a pretty good bet that Harris, who is known as a prankster, was just having a little fun with his fans.

He once pranked David Letterman with bogus Tony awards rehearsal footage.

The star of "How I Met Your Mother" is gearing up for its final scenes. The hit show's final episode will air on March 31.
