White Christmas, December 10: David Hasselhoff

I know, but today is David’s birthday – not David Hasselhoff’s, but the actual David, my oldest friend David, with whom I almost certainly used to watch Knight Rider (although I occasionally get my childhood Davids mixed up: I think friend-David was Knight Rider and cousin-David was The Dukes of Hazzard, but I could have it the wrong way round, but I don’t think I do, and anyway it doesn’t matter because David Hasselhoff is certainly called David and from my childhood, so he’s allowed to do David’s birthday song either way).

Happy birthday David! Happy Hoffday, everyone else.

Cartier Affair

Yesterday, in the post-Sunday-lunch haze, I was introduced to this film, which I was amazed not to have heard of before. It’s a jewel-heist caper! With Joan Collins and David Hasselhoff! And it’s rubbish!

But I sort of loved the tagline: “His only hope is to escape with her jewels…before she steals his heart!”. Exclamation mark theirs.
