A Very Special Message from David Hasselhoff

David Hasselhoff's Avatar Posted by 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.

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.

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!

So if the Hoff has an author account now on the PS.Blog, can we look forward to him replying to comments on other posts?

Haha – it’d be hilarious if the devs made a post about GT5: Prologue and the Hoff started fielding questions.

Something like “jump in my car” ? Haha, that would be funny :}

I thought that you may try add Mr.T or someone from The A Team :) 80’/early 90′ icons would be great.

Travis, you never cease to be awesome.
Now if you can just make is so we can switch characters on the launcher…. Just give us some way to do it besides quitting the game!


+ Seanscythe2 on October 23rd, 2008 at 8:02 am said:

You guys need to do a mixed anime level, put some famous characters in there.


+ stlthriot on October 23rd, 2008 at 8:03 am said:

Hmm, as far as characters go…
– Sephiroth (with his sword)
– Jak and/or Daxter
– Ratchet and/or Clank
– Lara Croft
(sorry if I mentioned some that may have already)

I think launching objects could be fun, too! Maybe in a different mode, of course. ;) Like a car or the massive bowling ball.

Hey Travis & David NICE JOB.
Anyways I would like to know if there’s going to be a bundle for the 2 expansions :)

Plus please make it so we need to buy the least amount of chracters possible to unlock all the trophies THNX FOR MAKING AN AWESOME GAME!!! :)


+ Trieloth on October 23rd, 2008 at 8:06 am said:

Thats really freaking neat that the Hoffman made it to the house of Pain!!


+ haskell on October 23rd, 2008 at 8:09 am said:

When I saw Travis, our PAIN developer/producer friend, buddy ole pal of ours said special things were coming, but did anyone, even came CLOSE to guessing the Hoff!
THIS is REALLY SPECIAL!! He posted the link on our web site, when I saw People magazine, I thougth Hmmm..interesting, we got in People Magazine..awesome. But then. Then I saw you, the Hoffinator!!

Are you bringing our nationaly loved,

Good morning my friend, how are you? ‘m sitting here having NO sleep at all since Tuesday night. I was playing R2 online, and in the corner of my eye, I saw somethign. A baby friggan mouse. So since 11:30ish last night, I have made a prison of a sort on my rooms floor. Cramming newspapers… oh forget

OK T, I have 3 good questions for you:

1-Are you going to get the HOFF back in the studio to record some new or more dialog in the future?

2- Since the Hoff started this Blog/message board with his “message” will the HOFF, make appearances here, and write stuff to us, or his feelings about the game etc., down the road?

3- My opinion, and some may agree, but I think we really need, ok, let me rephrase.. TRAVIS. WE REALLY, REALLY, REALLY NEED ALTERNATE OUTFITS FOR THE HOFF!!! lol
a- Option 1- His current Tux is fine…
but then we need his ….
b- Knight Rider outfit aka the Michael Knight outfit- Black jeans, button down black shirts, and his black leather jacket.

And this, this is a GIVEN!

3- His Baywatch lifeguard clothes!
We can even have his character holding his life perserver Bouy lol

Dave, WELCOME TO PAIN!! And David, IF you actually read this, all I got to say is, many people knew you before, some knew you from America’s Got Talent, but now your gonna be whipped, thrown, chucked, blown up, crashed, thrashed and mashed by amusement park rides, evil clowns, TNT Teddy Bears, Monkey’s, more explosives, and have every bone in your body broken, and so much more by millions of people! AIN’T IT GREAT!!

whenever you and KITT, jumped, crashed, spun out, etc. you never got hurt! Now, your in PAIN, and your not getting HURT here either. What a coinkie dink!!

Hey, Hoff, do you think that you can pull some strings and get your evil twin Gar and his car, KARR to come here? lol
That would be sweet!

Thanks for joining the TEAM Hoff!!

And sorry to say, but, the new Knight Rider, well, it blows chunky bits and kibbles.

Try and get Super Dave Osbourne! He would fit perfectly in PAIN!

+ tezasaurus on October 23rd, 2008 at 10:29 am said:

This is pretty hilarious. Are we going to get a Sackboy to launch around as well?!


+ davivman on October 23rd, 2008 at 10:53 am said:

This is fantastic. I love the Hoff and this is exactly the kind of motivation I needed to go earn some more PAIN trophies. Sweetness!


+ VenomX on October 23rd, 2008 at 11:02 am said:

Lol, nice. I didn’t see this coming.


+ GGCAN on October 23rd, 2008 at 12:16 pm said:

+ GODSACE on October 23rd, 2008 at 12:18 pm said:

+ seafea on October 23rd, 2008 at 12:21 pm said:

Wow. Please tell me the mp3 is coming as DLC too. I SO want that.


+ DarKaoZ on October 23rd, 2008 at 12:31 pm said:

OMG… This is the best use of a Celebrity yet! Some celebrities don’t like to be made fun off, some just laugh with us, and Huff is laughing with us and that is badass! I hope more Celebrities accept the offer to be in Pain and have fun playing with themselfs in the game and with other of their celebrity friends.


+ Ajora on October 23rd, 2008 at 1:22 pm said:

WOW =O I can’t belive this…it’s…it’s amazing.


+ TheGraciousOne on October 23rd, 2008 at 1:26 pm said:

I would of enjoyed “I can crush a walnut with my butt”, Mr. Jean Claude Van Damme a hell of alot better cause hes funnier.


+ DJTripleRRR on October 23rd, 2008 at 3:20 pm said:

YAY! Awesome! How about Pea-Tear Griffen?


+ terminatorvsmtrx on October 23rd, 2008 at 5:40 pm said:

HOFF!!!!! WE WANT NORRIS TOO!!!! and what about ARNY???!!!


+ terminatorvsmtrx on October 23rd, 2008 at 5:41 pm said:



+ VivaLaBen on October 23rd, 2008 at 6:20 pm said:

Ya know Travis, I’d really love to be able to launch Johnny Knoxville around. Or better, bring the whole Jackass crew to PAIN. It feels so right.


+ DJ_DTM on October 23rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm said:

Man I just hope he comes all drunk with a burger falling out of his mouth, !!!

I would like to know how I can donate my music to one of your games Travis??


+ jrinck on October 24th, 2008 at 9:24 am said:

This is awesome! The Hoff is back! Now get William Shatner in the game, too, and this will be the greatest game ever made!


+ jrinck on October 24th, 2008 at 3:30 pm said:

And speaking of The Hoff and Shatner, it just occured to me that The Hoff IS the heir-apparent to Shatner. Both have remarkably similar career paths. Both started out acting, had hit TV shows, and tried singing. OK, that’s about where it ends, but that’s enough similarity for me. If you have The Hoff, then you have to have The Shat!


+ juan29.zapata on October 24th, 2008 at 8:03 pm said:

How about every James Bond ever?! Anyway, that expansion it’s making me buying the game (and the expansion), now I just need a PSN Card.


+ Rhez on October 25th, 2008 at 12:37 pm said:

I’m still giggling. Great to see the Hoff has such a great sense of humor. I did get Amusement Park but I wasn’t really sold on continuing to buy add-ons for PAIN. Now I have to get Movie Studio.


+ artofwar420 on October 26th, 2008 at 9:50 pm said:

The “Culture Club” cover might be enough to finally get the game.


+ ScrappyCocoa on October 27th, 2008 at 4:45 pm said:

Cant wait to throw you off tall ass buildings…
