Respectful Insolence

Because you demanded it…

…OK, no you didn’t. But I found it amusing, anyway.

Can anyone explain to me why David Hasselhoff is such a phenomenon in Germany and other parts of Europe? Or why the video below ever got made:

It’s a question I’ve asked before.

    Hey, at least he’s a better singer than Shatner (but then, who isn’t?)

    That video was pretty bad. And I watched it with my speakers off.

    Orac,

    You shall not Hassel the Hoff! (This video is even worse)

    At the risk of reviving a certain brain eating creature, I would remind you that significant numbers of Germans also voted for Hitler. Presumably their taste in singers is similar to their former taste in politicians.

    This stuff is hilarious! This is even funnier than when Fred Phelps showed the toast while talking about Sodom and Gommorah. I’m cannonizing this man a Discordian Saint, Second Class, right now!
