David Hasselhoff Is A God

Man, do I have egg on my face tonight.

Before today, whenever I had occasion to think about David Hasselhoff, star of the 80's TV show Knight Rider, certain words came to mind:

Has-been. Loser. Joke. Pathetic.

I mean, yeah, he was cool and all when I was 12, but unfortunately for both me AND Mr. Hasselhoff, 12 was a looooooong-ass time ago. I mean, I knew that he was HUGELY popular in parts of Europe (mostly Germany) as a world-class singer, but it just seemed like too much of a joke to be taken seriously.

Then today I happened upon THIS.

Boy, was I wrong.

My apologies, Mr. Hasselhoff. I had no idea the depth of your talent, not to mention your "cool" factor. That video, which at one time was played quite regularly on the German equivalent of MTV, is quite possibly the most hard rocking, kick-ass cover of the most awesome song of all time that I have ever seen. I would also like to add that I do not think that this video makes you look like a no-talent ass-clown, or like the world's biggest fool.

On the contrary, I now have been made to see you for the quintessential performer that the rest of Germany has for so long known you to be. In hindsight, I should have known to just listen to the cries of your millions of German fans. After all, any country known for it's taste in lederhosen and dog-humping porn has got to KNOW talent, right?

No wonder you have such luck with the ladies.
