Germany is crazy for David Hasselhoff. Perfectly understandable when you consider that in 1989 he almost single-handedly caused the fall of the Berlin Wall. (Okay, not really, but a song of his was really popular in East Germany at the time and he did perform there on New Year's Eve in 1989 as the Wall was being torn down.)
