If that headline wasn't confusing enough, it'll all make sense when you watch this interview from the Apple Store on Regent Street in London that happened on Monday, December 15.
The London BGC Charity Day drew to a close recently, but the New York offices are just beginning their charity day. David Hasselhoff was in London today to raise money for the charity I CAN, a children's communication charity. All the numbers aren't in yet, but the last deal Prince Harry and WilliamÂ made was for â‚¬25bn (Â£21bn), a world record for a forward foreign exchange.We'll be updating this article with photos and information as it comes down. The public can still donate directly to I CAN.

At the London Film and Comic Con, many people came and went visiting David Hasselhoff. One family inparticular caught David's attention. The Miller family came with their son, Ethan, who has been diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes and I.T.P. and has to go to the hospital twice a week. Â David was very friendly and spent time talking with Ethan about Spongebob and KITT. David shared the family's thanks on his Facebook and Twitter.
My family and I met David Hasselhoff on saturday at London Film and Comic Con. He was very friendly and spent time talking with my son Ethan, telling him that he knows Sponge Bob and K.I.T.T. Is his best friend, Ethan loved it. Ethan hasnâ€™t been well lately, he has type1 diabetes and has just been diagnosed with I.T.P. As well. He has to go to the hospital twiceÂ a week so they can keep an eye on his blood levels. After his visit to the hospital yesterday they told us his blood levels were at a save level. I think this is largely due to the great day he had on saturday and meeting The Hoff, whom he is a big fan of, as is the whole familyÂ Â If you have contact with David please could you pass on my deepest thanks to him.
After we shared the family's story a few days ago, the family contacted us with some additional photos and a video to share. Lee Miller had this to say.
Â Then later that week I met David again at a casino in Stratford, where when he arrived he came straight over to me as he recognised me amd asked how Ethan was, he then did a video message to Ethan and asked me to stay the rest of the evening as his guest and play some of the casino games with him. I had a fantastic time.
David has been known to dedicate a lot of time and money to many charities around the world. He's also toured children's hospitals and is always trying to make dreams come true. This is what sets him apart from most other celebrities - always setting time for fans and children to make their day a little brighter. He takes time to sign autographs and treat fans like people.[gallery order="DESC" orderby="title"]

Some of the tour dates for David Hasselhoff's February-March tour in the UK have been cancelled with venue sites citing "touring logistic problems." London is the only concert that will happen, according to David Hasselhoff's Twitter:

This is going to be the best Freshers' Ball ever."I'm not bothered if he sings but hopefully he will turn up in his trademark red swimming shorts, although it might be a bit cold for them."The QUB Freshers' Ball will take place on 28 September.

It wouldn't be Christmas without a trip to the pantomime - and David Hasselhoff's show this year appears to be a popular draw.The former Baywatch actor - who is currently starring in Peter Pan at London's WNew Wimbledon Theatre - certainly seemed to be attracting the crowds as he left the venue after Thursday's show.And the 58-year-old was only too happy to sign autographs for the very fans who had earlier booed his performance as the villainous Captain Hook.
Thumbs up: David Hasselhoff, who is starring in Peter Pan at the New Wimbledon Theatre, was met by a host of admirers
Judging by Thursday's audience however it would appear that the Hoff has his famous fans too.Peaches Geldof was among those who was seen leaving the theatre on Thursday night - although the socialite, dressed in a black fur-trimmed coat appeared to be keeping a low profile.However the smile on her face suggested she had enjoyed the show as much as the younger viewers.
Star of the show: The actor's performance is proving popular if the fans outisde the theatre were anything to go by
Famous fans: Peaches Geldof was among those who went to see The Hoff treading the boards
It also featured their Yorkshire terrier, Coco, who was seen having a therapy session with a pet psychic for her addiction to tennis balls.Hasselhoff is also set to join the next series of Britain's Got Talent as a judge, alongside Amanda Holden and fellow newcomer Michael McIntyre.
In character: Hasselhoff plays Captain Hook in the pantomime alongside Louie Spence's very camp cabin boy Roger
They are replacing Piers Morgan, who has taken over Larry King's talk show in the US, and Simon Cowell, who has announced he will join the panel this year only for the live semi-finals.Auditions for the show are due to begin in London on January 4 2011.
