Please Explain the European Infatuation with David Hasselhoff...!?

Jump to last reply

Let me begin with saying I love Europe and all that is European.

Which makes it all the more difficult for me to understand why *some* Europeans (in particular, Germans apparently) embrace all that is David Hasselhoff. Maybe it is not true and the US media is making up (and making fun of) the fact that he is well loved abroad. His "Hooked on a Feeling" is just hysterical, IMHO. But apparently it is a huge hit abroad.

Does anyone have any insight on the David Hasselhoff phenomena? Is it true? Is it a fraud? What is the appeal, if any?
