flashback



Look what I found. When I was 15 or 16, I was at Sycamore Canyon beach with some friends. I remember walking down the beach and we noticed what looked like a water rescue going on. Turns out it was not a rescue, but Baywatch. So we went to the parking lot and saw a bunch of trailers and we tried to see if we could see anyone famous. The only famous person there was the Hoff. We thought that he was the biggest cheeseball in the world, but we gathered outside his trailer screaming, calling him 'Mitch', and asking him to sing for us. He was really nice and came out to see us. He gave us these cards of himself and some posters, and tape cassettes of his music. I don't think anyone kept the tapes, but we drove home from the beach later that day blasting it. He was really tall, thin, and tan. That's what I remember. I remember thinking he looked so much bigger on tv. Someone with him said we could show up at Zuma beach in bikinis and be on the set. It was hilarious. I'll never forget that day. I've kept this picture all these years. I love how oily and hairy he is. And who could resist the look he's giving?

I still have a "thing" for the Hoff. Whenever he's on tv, or in the news with a drunk scandal, or anything at all, one of my brothers calls me to give me all the details. I eat it up and then say, "Wait, why are you calling to tell me all this?" And he's like, "Because you love David Hasselhoff". Then I'm like, "No I don't. " And he's like, "Yes you do." and so it goes and has gone for the last 10 years it seems. Have you seen some of his music videos? If you haven't, you are missing out. Here are some of my favorites:

I watch the Hoff regularly since he appeared in the Sponge Bob Movie--one of the kid's fav driving shows.

Wow, I think you are the first person I ever (kinda) knew that liked him. Though when I was in grade school I had a friend sleep over that HAD to watch Night Rider. She was glued to the screen. Never knew he had music videos? Hmmm.

For some reason I couldn't get audio, but I loved the part in the first vid where he is wearing some kind of fur parka and fake skiing along. Hilarious!

Whoah Whoah Whoah! Who said anything about liking him? I guess it's more of a "it's so bad that it's good". I did watch Knight Rider though and loved it. He is mostly just a cheesy guy and I enjoy watching his cheesiness.
