Neil Patrick Harris' recent appearance on Ellen Degeneres' show resulted in  him losing his head and Ellen apologizing afterwards. After discussing his new role as a board member of the Academy of Magical Arts and the Magic Castle, Neil rolled out a head chopper to perform a bit of magic for the audience. Assisted by magician Ed Alonzo, Neil climbed into the Guillotine and apparently lost his head when Ellen "accidentally" activated the device. On the 24th, Ellen responded to a flood of emails from upset viewers who thought that Neil might actually have been harmed because he never made a reappearance after the commercial break. People.. are you kidding me? Watch the video below:
