Does ‘The Hoff’ even need an introduction? David Hasselhoff has once held the world record for Most Watched Man on Television Ever (yes, this is an official Guinness World Record title). The name Hasselhoff alone is enough to send everyone who owned a TV in the 80’s into a fandom frenzy. And now, it’s time to freak out, because Mr. Knight Rider and Mr. Baywatch are coming to FACTS, neatly wrapped in one package called David Hasselhoff.
David Hasselhoff will be available for Q&A’s, signing sessions and photoshoots on Saturday the 22nd and Sunday the 23rd of October, in Flanders Expo, Ghent!
The many faces of David Hasselhoff
1. Michael Knight in Knight Rider (1982-‘86)
David Hasselhoff was amazing as secret agent Michael Knight and even more badass as the driver of KITT. And just LISTEN to that soundtrack!
2. Mitch Buchannon in Baywatch (1989-2000)
Who hasn’t seen The Hoff run in slow motion on the beaches of Malibu? Did anybody say ‘iconic’?
3. The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004)
As a cool nod to the wonderful Baywatch series, David Hasselhoff saved our spongey friend as a speedboat *slash* launch pad. Good times.
4. Nick Fury: Agent of Shield (1998)
Before Samuel L. Jackson portrayed Marvel’s Nick Fury, David Hasselhoff had a go with the character in the 90’s. Yes, really!
5. Ammer in Click (2006)
David Hasselhoff might be on the receiving end of this joke, but damn, he nailed it.
The Hoff has also starred in soap operas like The Young and The Restless (1980 – 2010) and Love Boat (1980-‘81), comedies like Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004) and internet hits like Kung Fury (2015), among many, many others. On top of that, this man has a great voice, which he still puts to good use in his singing career.
David Hasselhoff’s list of professional achievements is astounding and it’s a great honour to have him as a guest at FACTS, on Saturday and Sunday, the 22nd and 23rd of October 2016.
