VIDEO: Frosty the Raunchy Snowman

CBS launches a viral video featuring the beloved holiday icon like you’ve never heard him before. Blame it all on Neil Patrick Harris.

Frosty is getting frisky, thanks to the folks at CBS and "How I Met Your Mother."

To promote both "HIMYM" and CBS’s annual broadcast of "Frosty the Snowman," CBS’s Eyelab Internet unit has taken scenes from the holiday classic and replaced the family-friendly dialogue with some raunchy lines from "HIMYM."

Almost all of the words come from Neil Patrick Harris’ character of lovable rogue Barney, who assumes the form of Frosty and utters all sorts of comments one never really wants to hear from a snowman. Like a description of a very special whip.

Sadly– or is it thankfully?– there’s no twisted take on the "Frosty" theme song.
