Adrants posted about this Australian billboard the other day, and it has forever since been burned in my brain. There's something disturbingly, gushingly, over-the-top phallic about it. As if I need another reason to be revolted by the taste of Pepsi:
You can, of course, download the image for you desktop here.
I know the internet is literally jam-packed with crazy Hasselhoff shit, but I can't help to wonder if he's self aware of his absolute ludicrousness? How does one keep topping oneself when one is David Hasselhoff? The bar is raised so high now if must be a full time job keep up with him. At this point, calling him the Liberace of Eurasia (and Australia) would almost be an understatement.
Australians must be a fun bunch, though. My friend Maurice told me about a calling feature from Virgin Mobile in Australia that allows you to pre-dial a special code number at the beginning of a night of drinking that will block a number from being dialed on your phone until 6am the next morning. This is to prevent drunk dials. Apparently it's true, it's old news, and it's awesome.
I know a few people who would benefit GREATLY from such a service.
*ahem* T-Bone *cough*
And if you don't already own it, you should download Har Mar Superstar's DUI MP3.

Our AA group encourages you to keep drinking Pepsi instead of alcohol. Remember one day at a time and you can do it!

I think he has to be aware of it. This is the evidence that conviced me:

David Hasselhoff is raising the freak bar to stagering heights, all the while thinking he's a serious actor. Amazing.

I saw that at a trainstation at about 4am, New Year's Morning... I took a photo with my camera phone, ready to share with the Internets, then never did. *sigh*
I also wished a former parliamentarian a very happy New Year. He was quuite nice about it, considering he doesn't need my vote anymore.

And what exactly is the point of having a mic stand pry open a huge bottle of pepsi that exploded thru the floor?
The Pepsi ad folks must be on Hoff's payroll to help keep that "crazy" bar so high.

are you, gasp!, a coke drinker, dan? I never would have thought.
I think Hasselhoff is super fabulous. He must have a wild sense of humor and an uncommon ability to laugh at himself, something we should all be able to do more of. This pepsi is for you, dave!

YES I AM A COKE DRINKER.
Pepsi is absolute swill. Minnesotans do not drink Pepsi. Or if they do, they don't admit it.

I love that he is wearing the exact same outfit that Britney Spears wore when she endorsed Pepsi. Grrrr.

It looks like he's just pissed all over the bottle cap.

hmm my commentary describing the unbelievably corny and cheap "hooked on a feeling" Hoffvideo didnīt show up either... maybe the hoff found out how to hack into planetdan or something

It seems like he's about to mount that bottlecap and show it a thing or two about love.
Or the bottlecap is about to show him...either way.

I could so use a little preventative DUI help... until then, don't answer your phone...
