Well you don’t have to guess too hard to figure out that I am German. No other nationality is crazier about The Hoff than us. But what else am I doing when I am not trying to meet up with David Hasselhoff?
Right now I am working for an online company in Berlin. The company just started two years ago and all of my colleagues are more or less my age (twenty-something).
But we are an international team of people and therefore most of my co-workers never heard of the German obsession about The Hoff. You can imagine it struck them quite as a shock when I told them I went to the best concert ever and showed them 5 times a day videos of The Hoff’s performance in Berlin last year. To their surprise I was not the only nuts who went there, but in total we were 6 people, including my girlfriend, my brother and 3 colleagues (all German) of mine.
I am working in the Online Marketing department of my company. That means we advertise a lot on Google and other display partners. We test out a lot of different banners, so maybe I will suggest to use an image of The Hoff on one of our next banners. I am sure this will increase our Click Through Rate a lot. But coming to think of it, this is not such a bad idea. When you start seeing David Hasselhoff banner popping up everywhere it is probably my fault.
What else is there to say about me? Well I live together with my Portuguese girlfriend in Berlin. Even though i suspect that she doesn’t like The Hoff as much as she pretends for me, she enjoyed his concert as well. She was surprised how much power David still has when he performed for more than 2 hours and wearing several fantastic outfits (yes he wore the blinking leather jacket that should get a place in a museum). More about me will follow soon, but for now let’s try to get The Hoff’s attention.
Cheers and don’t hassel The Hoff.
