David Hasselhoff has complained to museum curators after finding his photo absent in a collection of memorabilia about the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The actor and producer, who says he is working on a film version of TV series Knight Rider, claims he is partly responsible for the fall of the concrete divide.

Speaking to German magazine TV Spielfilm, Hasselhoff said in 1989, the year the wall fell, he had helped reunite the country by singing his song 'Looking for Freedom' among millions of German fans at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.

He said he felt he had moved people on both sides of the wall, although he admitted hardly any of the East Germans could speak English. He said: "I find it a bit sad that there is no photo of me hanging on the walls in the Berlin Museum at Check-Point Charlie.

I loved Knight Rider. It was one of my favorite shows as a kid, right up there with MacGyver. I wasn't big on cars. However, a car that could TALK was another matter.

I recall wall falling due to the pressure put on it when 1,998,734 West Germans attempted, on mass, to scramble into East Germany.

Yeah, but Hasselhoff inspired the people to put pressure on the wall on both sides. He should be in the museum.

Wot the hell, put his picture up. He had at least as much to do with the fall of the Berlin Wall as Ronald Reagan did.

....which is to say, nothing.

Along with a picture of a long, long lineup of Soviet citizens waiting to buy black market toilet paper while a Politburo member drives by in his private car on his way to the dacha. That helped too.

Hasselhoff is a liar.


The Berlin Wall fell from a nicely placed roundhouse kick by Chuck Norris.
