Muscle-bound screen legend David Hasselhoff, hero of Baywatch and of course Meet The Hasselhoffs, has released his own iPhone app. Called Ask the Hoff it’s based on him.
We are informed: “scientists have downloaded Hoff’s brain into the iPhone.” Surely it would have been a bit more enjoyable for the average Hoff-enthusiast if they could have downloaded his body circa the early eighties, surely his main asset. However, we’ve got his brain and they claim it can help you make decisions…
After the user asks a question and shakes the phone, an animated version of the Hoff replies with one of a number of pre-recorded responses, voiced by Hasselhoff himself.
So yes it’s like a magic eight ball with Hasselhoff theme.
The app is called Ask the Hoff and costs 59p. A UK company called Never Odd Or Even a bears the distinction of making it.
“I know there are moments when everyone faces major decisions in life and needs advice from an expert,”said Hasselhoff, “so as the proud owner of not one but two iPhones (I like to be able to make two phone calls at once!), I’m very pleased to announce the launch of my very own iPhone app.”
David Hasselhoff trivia: apparently he is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Watched TV Star in the World”.
