Hoff films music video in Downtown L.A.

Michael Knight and KITT were reunited on the streets of L.A. today - David Hasselhoff was downtown filming a video for his new reality series coming to A&E. I think this will become either the opening credits for the new show or be a promotional video.

The day started with a rehearsal in a very hot parking lot in Chinatown. It was a little surreal; there were about 30 Baywatch lifeguards wandering around along with a German Brass Band with matching Bavarian girls, a bunch of women wearing Don't Hassle the Hoff shirts and probably a dozen Hasselhoff lookalikes. There were 4 KITTs there, provided by Paul Casey and Knights of the West Coast.

The concept of the video is that the Hoff drives up in a KITT, steps out, and gets swarmed by fans representing all the aspects of his career. Everyone breaks into dance to a medley of the Hoff's songs: Hooked on a Feeling (Ooga Chaka), Turn The Radio Up (by his daughter) and Jump Into My Car. They did a few run-throughs with just the dancers, then the Hoff showed up around 4:00 for a few rehearsals. Hasselhoff was always the showman, psyching up the dancers/extras with his typical "let's hear it for the Hoff!" bravado.

They then moved the production to Pershing Square in downtown L.A. where it was more run-through after run-through. They cut back to using only 3 KITTs instead of four, but they looked good driving down Hill Street. And seeing the Hoff flanked by his daughters and all of the other dancers... it really felt like a fun celebration of the Hoff.

We've been asked not to post video of the production, but we can share a few stills from the day. Look for the finished production soon on A&E.

I really want to thank Paul Casey for inviting us to be a part of the event and to be able to share (what we can) with everyone.

Oh and we're not done with news from Paul Casey and the Hoff for the week... More to come.

That black leather outfit is the same one he used in Kickin It Old Skool.
I wish I could have been there guys but at least KOTWC got to be there.

All the best guys,

Dave Doggett.

Here's my shots. I'd like to add that everyone had a great time and they were very relaxed with security as long as you didn't mob Hoff for photos of autographs. Really enjoyable experience and I managed to get a quick word in with The Hoff and give him some things before he sped off in his Escalade. Thanks to Paul Casey for the heads up, Michael Pajaro for hanging out and keeping KRO updated, and for Daniel and the KOTWC for making this a fun day in LA! Lastly, thanks to Joe B for being a class act.

Thanks to Daniel of KOTWC for this fantastic quick snap with me and Hoff!

Photos weren't that easy to get but my camera has a pretty good zoom, so I did the best I could ;)

Enjoy!

Some great pictures there and with thanks to Michael and Victor for sharing them with us! Nice to know that Victor got a few words with the Hoff (WOW). However, I can't get my head around A&E, what is it about? Since some of us are outside the US region, is there a way for us to view the footage as well?

"A&E" is a cable television channel. It used to stand for "Arts & Entertainment" and would show upscale programming like classic movies and symphonies, but now they are more of a general all-purpose channel. They are creating a reality TV show about David and his daughters which should be airing this fall (I think).
