Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have two adorable kids, 6-year-old twins Gideon and Harper, and the little ones celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by making a very well-thought-out video laying out their demands for the visiting leprechauns. “A hopeful plea for guardianship and gold coins,” Neil captioned the clip on Instagram, which uses the app’s new album feature. Make sure you watch the entire thing unfold — while Gideon does promise to keep the leprechauns “away from our dogs,” Harper ups the ante by offering “room service” and “beer.” “My brother just wants some gold,” she tells the camera behind her giant green glasses. “Forget about the gold part, but if you don’t come we’ll be sad,” Gideon replies.
Instead of leaving simple pots of gold for the twins, a group of leprechauns decided to wreak havoc on the entire house. Neil followed up on the twins’s video with a series of photos that show exactly what went down. In addition to Gideon and Harper’s unimpressed faces with the insane mess left by the leprechauns, which included toilet paper thrown everywhere, couch cushions upended, and chairs stuck in their staircase, he also revealed the message they left in response to Gideon and Haper’s demands: “Never.” Best parents ever? Probably.
