David Hasselhoff Is A “True Survivor” In ’80s-Tastic Music Video

David Hasselhoff is no Chuck Norris, but his latest starring role certainly takes everything we love about ridiculous ’80s action movies and combines them all into one glorious music video. The song is called “True Survivor,” and with its fiery explosions, mad skateboarding skills and hot viking chick, it’s going to be your new favorite ’80s jamz.

Watch it now!

In order for you to truly understand what “True Survivor” is all about, you first must learn the ways of Kung Fury. David Sandberg wrote, directed and created all the VFX effects himself for this film, driven by his love for ’80s action movies and $5,000 of his own money. Recently, he started a Kickstarter campaign to finish the full-length cut and released a trailer that went viral. Cut to now and Kung Fury is heading to the Cannes Film Festival with a slammin’ Hasselhoff-approved music video as the wind in its back.

Watch the trailer for the film below.

While Kung Fury is filled with “arcade-robots, dinosaurs, Nazis, Vikings, Norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury,” the music video for “True Survivor” totes Hasselhoff’s glorious locks and a Back to the Future-style Delorean. He kicks off the video with, well, a few karate kicks, but then he tires himself out and just lets his hairology and jarring zoom-in shots carry the rest of the video.

Can we start voting for the vinyl release cover? If so, this should be it:

Also, there should definitely be a vinyl release.

Inauguration Alternative

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
