'Knight Rider' FunkoPop looks just like David Hasselhoff in a Trans Am

David Hasselhoff makes a fairly accurate FunkoPop.

At one of the many times American cars were regarded as nothing but awful, technologically backwards, fuel inefficient, rattle-y hunks of junk, the guys at Knight Industries introduced us to KITT; a crime fighting Trans Am with shitty mileage and too many plastic interior details. David Hasselhoff portrayed KITT's assistant, a washed up former cop turned corporate sponsored vigilante named Michael Knight. Now, the two are immortalized as a single FunkoPop!

Usually Funko-ized folks look odd, vacant, and not like themselves... but something about the Hoff just works.

A banjo cover of the 'Knight Rider' theme song

Remember when times were simpler? When a pre-Baywatch David Hasselhoff fought crime in a souped-up talking Firebird named KITT?

Youtuber Banjo Guy Ollie remembers. Now's he's covering that "high-tech" Knight Rider theme with his banjo (and his accordion and some other instruments). He reports that he'll soon cover other eighties TV themes like Magnum P.I., Airwolf, and The A-Team.
