Guten Abend, Meine Freunde

Und jetzt für meine deutschen Freunde, David Hasselhoff!
Seriously, I have no idea what this is from, but he is like a god in Germany. He's released at least 13 albums (THIRTEEN) over there, and all of them have been hits.
Seriously, there are sites like
THIS which shows one of "Michael Knight's" most famous photos. Good ole DH buck naked with only some puppies to cover himself. Here, we find it ridiculous, but in Germany, it's a photo that can be seen everywhere.
Last year my wife and I were in Northern Germany with my family (We were just outside of
Rostock). It was gorgeous. If you've never been to Germany, I highly recommend it. The south is honestly alot better than the north, but that's just my humble opinion. Many Germans, especially those from Berlin, would disagree with me. Anyway, one day we went for a walk around Rostock. Now, you have to understand: Rostock is on the northeastern tip of Germany. It's only a stone's throw away from Poland and was, at one point, essentially Russian. Much of the city's signs and shops still have Russian along with German in or on them. As we walked up what could be called, "Main Street," we noticed a poster on the side of a building for an upcoming concert. We crossed the street, and, lo and behold, we discovered that it was for David Hasselhoff. It was a HUGE glamour shot with him in (what looked like) black leather pants, an open white shirt, and an expression that was somewhere between constipation and awkward orgasm. Very odd, yet very humorous.
So, if you're a Hasselhoff fan, you're going to love the link at the beginning. It's him singing a timeless classic, though I don't really get the dogs that are involved (you'll see). Enjoy.

I worshipped Knight Rider when I was a kid. I was glued to the set every Friday night. That was David's best work, in my 'umble opinion.
