OSF: Not Sure Why They're Famous

Theme for this week's Old School Friday is "Not why they're famous." I've selected David Hasselhoff because I've never been sure why so many people like him. I was reminded of his success in the 80s this week as the world celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down and this video of his 1989 appearance at the celebration surfaced. He sang "Looking for Freedom." According to Wikipedia, the song was a hit in Germany for about 8 weeks that year.

I did watch David's old show Knight Rider, but even then I wasn't drawn to him, didn't see star presence. Fortunately for him, I have no influence over what people like. But it seems he still clicks with some folks because he's a popular judge now on America's Got Talent.

The creators of the Old School Friday meme are Mrs. Grapevine and Marvalus at Conversations with Marva and has these rules, if you want to join this theme party.
