David Hasselhoff, Crazy For You
The Hoff is 57 today, and we say that without any hint of irony. It’s actually his birthday. Unfortunately, whenever anyone mentions The Hoff these days, it’s met with some kind of over-the-top ironic fandom, or they berate him for eating pizza from the floor. All of this distracts from his impressive acting skills, which he demonstrated in the heavy duty lifeguard drama Baywatch, particularly in his scenes with Hobie. A fine man. Hence we thought we’d get him a gift, so we all went and sat in a shiny convertible overlooking our sweet city, part discussing gifts/part seriously making out, before it boiled down to a toss up between a waterproof watch, or a clip of his utterly appalling music. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Le Hoff!
