“Larger Than Life” is a phrase used to describe a legendary individual … when the persona surpasses the person. For example, many claim Winston Churchill was larger than life … his deeds, character and history are far greater than his humble human being. Leader of the worldwide Catholic Church, The Pope, is also considered by most as larger than life. Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color line and became the first African-American MLB baseball player of the modern era … yeah, that’s a pretty big deal and larger than life. Ghandi … him too, larger than life.
Now you may disagree with our larger than life examples above, but there is one individual who demonstrates such worldwide impact, fame and accomplishments … that there is no arguing with this person’s larger than life persona. Joining the legendary ranks of The Pope, Churchill, Jackie Robinson and Ghandi … and let’s be honest, this person is LARGER than larger than life … David Hasselhoff, aka The Hoff or A God Among Men.
And how can you question this “LARGER than larger than life” claim? The Hoff is a TV star (Knight Rider, Baywatch, America’s Got Talent, etc.), a movie star (The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Dodgeball, etc.), a Broadway star, a singing star, a music video star, an Internet star … hell, dude has his own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Pope-shmope. No one if larger than David Hasselhoff.
So now that you understand the universal magnitude of The Hoff, try to grab a hold of this … David Hasselhoff launched his very own iPhone app … Ask The Hoff [iTunes].
Created by the UK-based mobile development agency Never Odd Or Even, Ask The Hoff is a godsend to mankind. Ask a question, shake your iPhone and an animated version of The Hoff replies with a response … recorded by the man himself, David Hasselhoff. The app gives iPhone owners the chance to receive spiritual guidance from everyone’s favorite bouffant haired Trans Am driving lifeguard. And since you can’t put a price on the LARGER than larger than life David Hasselhoff … the 99¢ price tag is highway robbery for this revolutionary app that will change the world.
Don’t Hassel The Hoff! (additional insights into The Hoff app)
Unlike many celebrity-based apps which lift soundtracks from film and TV without permission, the material contained in Ask The Hoff is 100% David Hasselhoff and recorded exclusively by him for this app. The app’s angelic-like introduction is by a gospel choir in Dallas. And get this, even Steve Jobs doesn’t Hassel The Hoff. Apple rejected the app because they felt it ridiculed and defamed David Hasselhoff. But when presented documentation that the app was made in conjunction with The Hoff, Apple quickly approved Ask The Hoff within 24 hours or re-submittal. Now that is Hoffalicious!
