Crackin' Cheese, Hoff!

I'm coining a new term:
mentos [`men-tōs]
describing an object or activity that is so super cheesy that it reeks of German advertising.

David Hasselhoff's body of work is so mentos.

Not to be mistaken with Mentos, (note capital "M"). Mentos have the awesome power to get ANYONE , who enthusiastically pulls the candy out of their pocket and pops one into their mouth, out of ANY sticky situation. DooDooDooDooDooDooDoowAHHHHHHH!

Autsch! What terrible fake German!

On Hasselhoff: When are you Americans ever going to get that The Hoff was big in Deutschland not for Baywatch but for Knight Rider - and admittedly, for some terrible singing. But I'm sure a bunch of y'all keep fond memories of certain supersmart black car in a secret little corner of your hearts.

Between my horrible 6th grade German & K8's Babelfish(ed) postcard, I thought we did a pretty good faux Deutsche!

And in our offline banter she makes a great point:
"...deutsch liebe for der hoff CANNOT be explained away on the retro coolness of knight rider -- David Hasselhoff was embraced on the german pop charts as well."

I think people pretty much forgot about the Hoff once Pam and twins arrived on the beach. So he can barely claim fame to Baywatch.


Lol. Just giving you shit. But we are still blaming your country for it. ;)
