On Tuesday (June 15), CoinFlip, one of the world’s leading bitcoin ATM operators, unveiled a marketing campaign (called “So Flippin’ Easy”) featuring “How I Met Your Mother” actor Neil Patrick Harris (NPH) aimed at demonstrating how easy it is to invest in Bitcoin.

NPH, who is now a spokesperson for CoinFlip, talked about his experience with Bitcoin in an exclusive interview with Jason Brett, a reporter at Forbes.

Here are a few highlights:

  • I remember when I first heard about Bitcoin; like most people, I didn’t fully understand it but at the time the price of Bitcoin was so low I figured I could give it a shot without risking too much.
  • Now, my investment has grown tremendously and multiplied in value, even major corporations and traditional investors are all jumping on the bandwagon. My goal is to let everyone know how easy and accessible it is to invest in cryptocurrency and join the future of finance.
  • Cryptocurrency is the future of how we shop, invest, and do business, but it can also be incredibly technical and intimidating. I prefer my transactions to be simple and to the point. It’s why I joined forces with CoinFlip – their ATMs make it so anyone can turn their cash into a significant investment opportunity with a great return.

According to CoinFlip’s press release, Ben Weiss, CEO at CoinFlip, had this to say:

Cryptocurrency can be intimidating, and one of the things we set out to do with this campaign was to demystify it by showing how simple it can be to buy Bitcoin. As a company, CoinFlip is committed to helping everyone have access to the benefits of Bitcoin. Some people leverage crypto as an alternative asset; others use crypto when they have reduced or no access to traditional banking resources. No matter the reason, CoinFlip will be there with our expansive ATM network, online trading options and award-winning customer service to answer any questions you may have whether you are making your 1,000th transaction or your first.

This campaign, which was created by advertising agency The Boathouse, will “debut nationally across television, OTT, YouTube and social channels.” Television and OTT spots will “initially run in five markets: Chicago, Boston, Tampa, Denver and San Antonio with :60, :30, :15 and :6 second spots.”
