Heh, I see what you mean. Guess I'm not too surprised Al hasn't 
given it a place on the "In Development" page, then.

When I was visiting some friends in Germany we went to a local fair
with a bunch of carnival rides and what not, one of the attractions
(something like bumper cars if memory serves) was decorated with all
these airbrushed images of 80s stars; Hasselhoff in Knight Rider gear, 
the A*Team, Alf I think, a few others.  

I guess I can kind of sort of see the appeal, though he is more of a 
punchline here, despite his successful revival in Baywatch. But we
never ever think of him as a singer, and the idea seems *really* weird
to us. 

Also, I don't think Thomas shares in the Hasselhoff love either, 
judging by his comments in that atariage thread.
