A Very Special Message from David Hasselhoff

David Hasselhoff's Avatar + Posted by David Hasselhoff on Oct 22, 2008 // "The Hoff"

Hello everyone, it’s your friendly neighborhood David Hasselhoff here. I know you’re probably wondering “What in the KITT am I doing on the PS Blog?” right? Well…settle down…settle down! I’m here to let you know straight from the Hoff’s mouth – I’m coming to PAIN! And it hurts so good! Don’t believe me, PEOPLE Magazine just broke the story and I’m talking about it on my blog.

Hasselhoff in Pain

What am I doing in PAIN you ask? It’s the Movie Studio! What’s a movie studio without The Hoff? You can now put The Hoff into a launcher and fling me into harm’s way – exploding crates, cars, people – everything is fair game. And best of all, you’ll never even put a scratch on this mug of mine!

When I was first approached about PAIN, I really didn’t know what to think. I mean, it’s great to think that someone would want to put me in a game, but THIS game is all about flinging people into walls, smashing them into cars, and spanking monkeys. While I wholeheartedly approve of the monkey spanking, I wasn’t too sure about the rest of the game. When I finally got my hands on PAIN though, everything changed, and I “got it”. If anybody can understand silly fun, it’s me.

Hasselhoff in Pain

I am a man of many emotions so when you throw me around the Movie Studio, I need to express myself. What better way than in song! So to commemorate my invasion onto the PS3, I made a cover song of Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” exclusively for PAIN. I’m really happy with the way the track turned out. We definitely brought something new to such a classic, well-known tune, and when you hear it, you’re going to like it. Sure, you know David Hasselhoff, but this song is like nothing I’ve done before.

Hasselhoff in Pain

So, after a lot of hard work by a bunch of talented people, Hoff Day is coming on Nov. 6! I’ve got the keys to the Movie Studio … who wants in? After all, do you REALLY want to hurt me? Wait….don’t answer that. Just go download The Hoff and play PAIN!

ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS? OMG this made me laugh so hard. Are there going to be all your catch phrases? This is a nice update. I can’t wait to smack the carp outta tha movie studio with your hide. I remember the Original Knight Rider, When I was a kid. Hey guess what Hoff, I’m 36 now. Hows that feel. Are you gonna have any Babewatch outfits??

How about PEE WEE HERMAN!

I honestly tried to get Norris. He was on my short list. Hoff was always #1 since we started PAIN. It awesome that he said yes. He’s awesome to work with.

Dear Mr. The Hoff,

Thanks for reuniting East and West Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

You efforts in the arena of international relations have not gone unappreciated nor forgotten amongst the PlayStation hordes.

“After all, do you REALLY want to hurt me?”

Honestly, yes. But your character isn’t worth my money sorry.

@Travis

You should be made into a Pain character so every time you post and I don’t see “Multiplayer coming soon!” I can throw you around a bit.

Instead of ‘America’s Got Talent’ we can now say ‘America’s Got a Painful Hoff’

Sounds like fun to me!

@BigP123: Wow so hostile. It’s coming. I promise. Tough crowd on the PS Blog. I love you too :)

@Azmo85: Yes 11-6-08

@Jcasanova: Hoff has three outfits. One looks oddly like his swim gear and another has a leather jacket and jeans… I wonder where that comes from.

Hahahahaha!!!
I have PAIN, don’t play it much and never buy new content (c’mon guys, it’s a bit of a rip-off to ask us to pay for EVERYTHING when the game itself is so bare-boned) BUT despite that, I will just HAVE to get Mr Hasselhoff.

And thanks to him for his time also, much appreciated. :)

Well you see, if norris was in this game, they would have to change the name of the game to No Pain…

Looking forward to this:)
