Readings from the Book of Hasselhoff

Manolo says, daily readings from Don’t Hassel the Hoff. Today, page 103.

Nobody knew I was in town so I enjoyed the freedom of not having to worry about paparazzi. Every day I’d drive across town from my rented apartment to visit my voice teacher and then go to the studio to record. One afternoon I had stopped at some lights when I saw a boy and a girl walking home from schoool wearing Knight Rider backpacks. I rolled down the window

‘Excuse me, have you seen KITT?’

‘Errrrrrr, no.’

‘My name is Michael Knight and I seem to have lost my car.’

They seemed rooted to the spot.

‘Well, guys, if you do see my car please say I’m looking for him. Here are some pictures to remember me by.’

As I drove away, I looked in the mirror and the kids were screaming and jumping in the air.

P.S. Previous readings from Don’t Hassel the Hoff.

    The Hasselhoff, he is indeed comfortable in his celebrity. What fun it must be to be able to make a kid’s day like that!

    Vindicated in Court

    David Hasselhoff, left, the former star of “Baywatch” and “Knight Rider,” accepted libel damages from the publisher of magazines that accused him of being drunk and abusive in a Hollywood nightclub, The Associated Press reported yesterday. Northern & Shell PLC, publisher of the British edition of OK! magazine, and Northern & Shell North America Ltd., publisher of the American edition, “accept that their allegations were false,” Mr. Hasselhoff’s lawyer said in London. “Each defendant has agreed to publish an apology in their magazine and together have agreed to pay the claimant substantial damages.” The amount of damages in the out-of-court settlement was not disclosed.

    A grown man pulls up in his car to talk to two children. They are “frozen in place” with terror. He asks them if they’ve seen his kitten. He tells them that he’s lost his car EVEN though he’s in his car! He hands them photographs — of what we shudder to guess.

    I’m ascared.

    If you ask me,
    Every drop of irony was wrung out of Elvis during the 90′s
    Every SINGLE drop.
    Because of this, and because of our (acquired) thirst for Irony
    We have simply chosen a new totem for our thirst.
    Mr. Hasselhoff is this totem.
    His cult grows day by day,
    and I keep seeing it pop up even in the strangest places.
    The Hoff is the new King,
    Even if Elvis will always wear the crown.
    I may start taking bets on when the first Hoff impersonators will show up
    officiating weddings, skydiving and the like.
    We can only be sure that this will happen in Clark County Nevada
    (conveniently located near Area 51)

    The mention of voice lessons reminds me that we were treated to a Hoff serenade the other night on “America’s Got Talent.” The enthusiam and bravado with which the Hoff performed more than made up for his dubious vocal talent. He is a true showman – so obviously enjoying himself and so confident in his ability that I had to enjoy it.
