    Hasselhoff claims he had hand in Berlin Wall falling

    David Hasselhoff has complained to museum curators after finding his photo absent in a collection of memorabilia about the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    The actor and producer, who says he is working on a film version of TV series Knight Rider, claims he is partly responsible for the fall of the concrete divide.

    Speaking to German magazine TV Spielfilm, Hasselhoff said in 1989, the year the wall fell, he had helped reunite the country by singing his song 'Looking for Freedom' among millions of German fans at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.

    He said he felt he had moved people on both sides of the wall, although he admitted hardly any of the East Germans could speak English. He said: "I find it a bit sad that there is no photo of me hanging on the walls in the Berlin Museum at Check-Point Charlie.

    "After my appearance I hacked away at pieces of the wall that had the black, red and yellow colours of the German flag on it. I kept the big piece for myself and gave the smaller pieces to colleagues at Baywatch."

    Hasselhoff said he doesn't mind that Americans make fun of his popularity in Germany and says he feels it is his second homeland.

    He said: "Many Americans joke about my popularity in Germany. But they have no idea how beautiful Europe is and how rich it is in culture and fun and warmth and children. In Germany children have brought me thousands of flowers."

    After looking at the picture of him at the wall with the crazed look and then seeing that video I've come to the conclusion that all that hairspray Hoff' used in the 90's might have done some brain damage. :yellow::up:
     
  7. I'm sure his attempt at singing played a part in the wall crumbling down as well.

    Maybe it was like that old Memorex commercial and his singing caused the wall to explode!

    I have no desire to post ass on these forums. And since Hasselhoff has appeared in films, that makes this thread perfectly legitimate in this forum. Anything else?

    David Hasselhoff is a goddamned SAINT and uniter of countries! You people obviously do not appreciate his true genius.

    Hasselhoff is German Royalty. If he said he brought down the wall, then he did. By himself, with no help, just him, the hammer and chisel.

    Eh, I can see why--because of his s**tty song, the Germans worked extra hard to tear down the wall and get as far away from that song as humanly possible.

    That "Hooked on a Feeling" one was f**king hilarious, though. :D

    [​IMG]Well....ummm...technically it WAS him but also KITT. You see he was driving the Night Rider car and he rammed through the wall under the influence. Everyone else just went along with it.

    Actually, he's been saying this for a while. As a result, Germans hate him now, and get embarassed and deny the fact he used to be a big star there. I mentioned the whole "Germans love David Hasslehoff" thing to some German exchange students last year, and lots of angry stuttering resulted.
