  1. He keeps looking so fit! Incredible!
    And David's fame in Germany is over exaggerated. He had a few pop hits there and is a familiar face for sure, but more for retrostalgia. 
    He's also a running gag. When we were working on a Dutch/German TV show called The Next Uri Geller, and I as a consultant had a black leather jacket akin to Michael Knight, the German crew would always sing: "I've been looking for freedom! I've been looking so long!" 
    So it's more a satire piece than real fame.
    Even in Wales/Cardiff where he has/had a house and been an incredible judge on BGT, he is more famous for that. But I love the Hoff, Knight Rider is such an incredible part of my youth. I actually have a video on my channel where the guy that I consulted for Uri Geller, treated me on an afternoon with the Dutch KITT. And I ended up making a metal theme song. That's how much KITT means to me as almost a 50 year old.

  2. My mom was a waitress at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, NJ in the late 80's. David Hasselhoff came in to her restaurant, ordered almost $300 in food, and didn't leave a tip.

    A friend of mine met him at sea world when he was about 7 years old. He asked D.H. for an autograph. D.H. responded with "You got $20 bucks?" my friend said No?

    D.H. responded with "then, get lost kid!" and shoved my friend out of his way.

    Our mutual contempt for David Hasselhoff is in fact, the reason we ever became friends.

  3. Don't believe that he's such an icon in Germany. I'm German and I can say that he is definitely not as popular here as he pretends to be. It's so annoying when Americans keep asking me if I'm such a big Hasselhoff fan, too. He probably keeps spreading this myth in America in order to distract from the fact that he is mostly ridiculed in America nowadays.

  4. When are you going to open up your audience to fans outside of USA? I have been trying to get tickets for 2 months last year and got rejected to realise it is because I am outside USA. Kelly has a lot..like a lot fans outside USA. I have grown up with her. I am originally from Eastern Europe…

  5. Sorry, but a not very well done parody of the european freedom theme. Only one word fits into the context.
    Not a great actor and even worse as a singer.
    "SCORPIONS"
    did before him and better, singing "Wind of Change". Who played at Music Peace Festival in Moskau and when?
    Ask in germany which song belongs to the "Fall of the Berlin wall". And ask further to the east which song belongs to the "tearing down of the iron curtain". In my oppinion its up to 90%-95% "wind of change". Sometimes music can be and do so much more……
    But "playbacking" not self-written music and lyrics in a flashing jacket is then not enough. Sorry, no goosebumps!

  6. Kelly clarkson David hasselhoff plays Mitch buchannon during a T. V show called baywatch, baywatch is a lifeguard at Los Angeles county lifeguard baywatch headquarters, Kelly clarkson the lifeguards try to save a person is drown at the beach, they also has lifeguard tower, lifeguard rescue veichle unit.

  7. oh kelly clarkson, i knew that eventually you'd become another jimmy fallon who always tries to outspoken your own supposedly guests, you are overwhelming kelly, supposed to just stick to what you're really good at, i don't see adele is making her own talk show

  8. If you guys read comments from Germans saying that Hasselhoff is not famous in Germany, then it's because I suppose they are too young to know it. He definitely was famous. No doubt about that. Maybe today it looks and feels like he became a parody of himself, but this is the same as with all other things from the 80ies (and 70ies). You don't dress and style like people from the 80ies in your todays life, you do it at max for a costume party or carnival. But it was cool back then. So you will never see him today the way we did in the 80ies, but still he is an icon and we connect certain feelings and memories of the past with David.

  9. I have lived in Germany for 27 years and the whole things has been a bit of a joke here. Germans think it’s funny how Americans believe is a huge star here( he is not).
