NUNO BETTENCOURT And JASON SEGEL Make Video For 'How I Met Your Mother'

Nuno Bettencourt, guitarist for the band EXTREME, and actor Jason Segel star in a music video for the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother".

Known for their love affair with "songs that are awesome," the makers of "How I Met Your Mother" have re-created the famous EXTREME video "More Than Words". Other cast members — including Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Josh Radnor — also appear in the video.

Nuno explained the odd feeling it gave him filming a video that felt very similar to one he's already made. "It's bizarre looking up and seeing Jason," he stated with a laugh. "It's pretty interesting." However, he added, "It's kind of cool, because it's not the song. It's a completely different song in the sense of lyrics and everything, so that makes it interesting."

Jason Segel said that performing with Bettencourt was "amazing. I feel like I have a new soulmate. We might even try to do a little collaboration at some point, so that would be a real honor."

Associate producer Carl MacLaren explains that the idea is that "the video doesn't live in the world of the show, like most of our websites do. The video lives in the world of Marshall's brain. This, in a sense, is like the ultimate version of the song and we're doing another website within the show. You'll see a piece of the website in the episode, and the great thing is people are going to assume that's what they're going to see when they go to the URL — and instead, it's going to be this high-concept video starring Nuno Bettencourt and basically a reenactment of the 'More than Words' video."

You can view the video below.

Bettencourt is currently the guitarist for the Grammy-nominated band EXTREME, which has released five albums plus a greatest hits set, selling over 10 million records worldwide. Their song "More Than Words" (from EXTREME's 1990 multi-platinum album "Extreme II: Pornograffitti") topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track was also recently featured in hit movies "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "The Love Guru".
