David Hasselhoff Made His Own Pro-Germany Parody of the Beats by Dre World Cup Commercial (Video)
If you were under the impression that Germany won the 2014 FIFA World Cup because of their deep roster of supremely talented players who worked together like moving parts of a well-oiled high-tech machine that attacked opponents in unrelenting waves…nope. Wrong.
Germany won the 2014 FIFA World Cup for one reason, and one reason only: they had The Hoff in their corner.
I am of course referring to David Hasselhoff. As you probably know, while the Knight Rider and Baywatch star achieved only moderate, kitsch-level fame in the United States, in Germany he was a huge star with a string of #1 hits on the German pop charts. Hell, he even performed his song, “Looking for Freedom,” from the top of the Berlin Wall on New Year’s Eve in 1989.
So despite being born in Maryland, Hasselhoff’s ties to Deutschland are stronger than mere ancestry. And prior to yesterday’s World Cup final between Germany and Argentina, he released an incredible parody of the now-famous Beats by Dre “Game Before the Game” World Cup commercial, showing how The Hoff gets ready for a big game.
How incredible was it? Well, it features KITT (the car from Knight Riders) and the Hoff pulling on some tight Germany underwear. So…pretty incredible.
Take a look:
You’re welcome, Germany.
