From The Celebrity Cafe
David Hasselhoff is known for his roles in the 1980’s hit series Knight Rider as well as the 1990’s hit Baywatch but “The Hoff” is more than a lifeguard in red swim shorts. Since he has contributed to America’s Got Talent, Britain’s Got Talent is currently working with Play Station to create his own video game. He has also teamed up with Lean Pockets as well as released his newest album,This Time Around; not to mention a series of online work which fans can contribute to! The hilarious Hoff took a moment to talk to TheCelebrityCafe.com about his current work and future work, but it wouldn’t be an interview with The Hoff if there weren’t a twist of sarcasm and humor mixed in.
TheCelebrityCafe: Tell me about your work with Lean Pockets.
David Hasselhoff: Mr. Lean came to me through, well, I don’t know how he came to me. [Probably] through my manager because I’ve been doing a lot of work online – I have a big online presence with my website and my Twitter. I’m getting a lot of things actually. I’ve things with Play Station where I’ve done a “Dance Hoff.” I have a game coming out on iTunes for the iPhone from Play Station.
I have a commercial in Norway which is an interactive commercial where you can actually co-star in the commercial. We’ve green screened everybody and you put your Facebook in there and it says that “David Hasselhoff is looking for Sarah in the mall,” and there’s a picture of you, and at the end we find you in your house. If your house is on satellite we actually shoot coming to your house – it’s pretty wild.
I’ve been doing things in Germany that actually involve my video tape. Basically my online presence is generating a lot of resources for me. We have a keen sense of recognizing the obvious and the obvious is that Baywatch is still the number one syndicated show in the world and since people know me so well they respond to whatever I do.
Then from there, America’s Got Talent to Britain’s Got Talent and episodes ofKnight Rider and Baywatch are still running and so, this came to me. [Lean Pockets] know I have a crazy sense of humor, and they know that I like to make fun of myself. They brought me in and said they have this German metrosexual crazy character, and they told me what it was like and it kind of (In his best German accent) “Talks like this! And it’s up to you!…”
