David Hasselhoff, aka The Hoff, is back. And holy hell, it’s amazing.
The Hoff comes in the form of a music video by way of the Kickstarter backed film, Kung Fury. Haven’t heard of it? Let me give you the background:
According to The Huffington Post, Kung Fury is a “Swedish martial arts comedy film written and directed by, and starring David Sandberg. It is an homage to 1980s martial arts and police action films.” It appears to have been shot entirely on green screen and fearures giants, flying ninjas and dinosaurs. Oh, and King Fu Hitler. Yes, you read that right. Only he’s not Hitler. He’s “Kung Führer.” No joke. You can’t make this shit up.
So where does The Hoff come in? Well! Mr. Hasselhoff sings the movies theme song, “True Survivor.” Watch the official music video here. It is pure gold!!! Or pure cheese….
The video features The Hoff, complete with 80s mullet and bad visual effects. As Hoff sings, what could have actually been a decent hit in 1983, visuals of the film go in and out. It’s either the best, or worst, music video I have ever seen.
I don’t know if or when the film comes out, but I see this being one of those terrible cult classics. Only time will tell.
