We’re still a long way out on that Chris Pratt-starring Knight Rider reboot—if it even happens that way now that he’s in the process of becoming a huge movie star and with what are sure to be extensive Marvel commitments—but the staple of 1980s television is never too far from our hearts and minds. And in that spirit, we’ve got a reunion of sorts on our hands, as stars David Hasselhoff and KITT get back together for this commercial, and it feels so right.
Hasselhoff’s slide into wing-nut lunacy has been well documented by the paparazzi, reality TV, and even his own videos that show his occasionally questionable eating habits, but it’s been a while since we caught up the Knight Industries Two-Thousand, better known as KITT. And apparently over the years, he’s become a wee bit kooky in his own right. If this video, a commercial for Samsung’s new “Smart Home,” is to be believed, he’s gone down a jealous, jealous path, one that apparently places him squarely in stalker territory if you ask me.
