David Hasselhoff is Painfully coming our way

In the entire time I have been here at Console Monster, I have never thought I would ever say the next sentence. David Hasselhoff is going to be on a video game, having been confirmed as a future downloadable character for PSN hit Pain.

A statement from the man himself on the PlayStation Blog reads: “Hello everyone, it’s your friendly neighbourhood David Hasselhoff here. I know you’re probably wondering “What in the KITT am I doing on the PS Blog?” right? Well…settle down…settle down! I’m here to let you know straight from the Hoff’s mouth – I’m coming to PAIN! And it hurts so good!

“What am I doing in PAIN you ask? It’s the Movie Studio! What’s a movie studio without The Hoff? When I was first approached about PAIN, I really didn’t know what to think.

I mean, it’s great to think that someone would want to put me in a game, but THIS game is all about flinging people into walls, smashing them into cars, and spanking monkeys. While I wholeheartedly approve of the monkey spanking, I wasn’t too sure about the rest of the game. When I finally got my hands on PAIN though, everything changed, and I “got it”. If anybody can understand silly fun, it’s me.

“I am a man of many emotions so when you throw me around the Movie Studio, I need to express myself. What better way than in song! So to commemorate my invasion onto the PS3, I made a cover song of Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” exclusively for PAIN. I’m really happy with the way the track turned out. We definitely brought something new to such a classic, well-known tune, and when you hear it, you’re going to like it. Sure, you know David Hasselhoff, but this song is like nothing I’ve done before.

“So, after a lot of hard work by a bunch of talented people, Hoff Day is coming on Nov. 6! I’ve got the keys to the Movie Studio … who wants in? After all, do you REALLY want to hurt me? Wait….don’t answer that. Just go download The Hoff and play PAIN!”

Isn’t that the weirdest thing you have ever heard? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below!
