Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Have You Heard Of HoffSpace?

If you guessed it has something to do with David Hasselhoff, not only are you right, you also need to get a life.

The former star of Knight Rider and current judge in America’s Got Talent meets MySpace. With members from all over the world (remember, Baywatch was an international phenomena), the site is literally a Hoff Around The World. If you need a minute or two to wrap your mind around that idea, go ahead.



Take your time.



Got it? Nope? I can still give you a minute more.



Almost?



There! Let’s proceed.

An intro in the homepage explains the existence of HoffSpace, supposedly from the Hoff himself: “In my travels round the world I have always been surprised that no matter where I go people recognize and know me, from Europe, Australia and India to the Philippines and the Zulu Nation in South Africa. This got me thinking... I realized that while two people from two entirely different countries and backgrounds may seem to have nothing in common, the only thing they might have in common is me…. So I decided to start a network where people from across the world might come together and get a conversation started over me. Where it will lead, I don’t know but the world would be a better place if everyone talked a little more to each other...”

(Wow, he even mentions the Philippines!)

In that homepage you can also find fascinating links such as HoffBlog, HoffShop, a pre-order form for Anaconda 3 The Offspring (methinks this Hasselhoff-starrer is direct-to-DVD; a note says the German version will be released in November), and such diverse groups like “David Hasselhoff UK”, “Planet Hasselhoff” and the “David Hasselhoff’s Hair Appreciation Society”.

You don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself here. And weep for joy or sorrow, you decide.
