David Hasselhoff was one of the artists who performed on the stage of the big party in Berlin, back in the days the berlin wall
- and with it the iron curtain
- felt. Since then, the Hoff is a cult icon in Germany.
His song "i am looking for freedom" is still asociated with this happening and its zeitgeist
Most germans know that its trashy kitsch
kult about him, they take it with a smile.
part its a little bit like that chuck norris
thing, part it's the remember of the night the divided country became one nation again.
David Hasselhoff wore black leather and drove a speaking computer-car. He was like MADE for the German audience of '89.
thats the tale of the Hoff and the Germans
