I'm not sure what to say about this

Lucky #13 in the Being David Hasselhoff contest is from Darin, who has apparently spent a lot of time considering the similarities between Tom Jones and David Hasselhoff.

Who is the icon?


UPDATED: Hmmm. There was a table here, but the formatting wasn’t working. I have replaced it:

Wears tight breeches and billowing shirts

Wears tight shorts and no shirts

Known for over sexuality

Known for being over the top in acting

1965 hit "It's Not Unusual" (#1) won a Grammy in 1965 for Best New Artist.

Had a #1 hit (in Germany) in 1989 “Looking for Freedom”. Most other releases failed to enter the top forty. His chart record is slightly better in Austria and Switzerland

Had an internationally successful television variety show from 1969-1971 titled This is Tom Jones.

Starred in Knight Rider 1982 – 1986, nuff said

26 hits which made into the top 20 during this time frame.

Is an Internet phenomenon, mostly as a subject of fun. Numerous websites have appeared and there is currently a campaign to get him a number one single in the UK.

Shows are traditionally a knicker-hurling frenzy of raw sexual tension

Internet shows reflect aptitude to yelling at a Wendy’s meatpie

Internationally successful television variety show from 1969-1971 titled This Is Tom Jones. First act booked- Elvis.

Late 2006, a musical based on his life called David Hasselhoff: The Musical opened in Australia before moving to the United States. Hasselhoff describes it as "totally campy".

Has a star on the Walk of Fame for his contributions to the recording industry

Received star in 1996 that people walk on.

Married at 16 he has one of the longest histories of marriage in the entertainment industry (41 years).

Married in 1984 divorced in 1989, Married in 1989 divorced in 1986. Striving to marry 41 times.

Was knighted by the Queen in 2006 for his contributions to the recording industry.

On August 2, 2006, Hasselhoff proclaimed himself king of the internet

Although Tom was married in 1956 (at 16) it is obvious with such charisma that he could have fathered a child at 12 (David?). Being from a Coal mining town he had to keep busy.

Although they are never seen together David does have some unique characteristics that are reminiscent of Tom.

Both are considered sexual icons.

David strives to be like Tom and exude talent one day.

This is very disturbing evidence. Perhaps a public inquiry is in order.

I know you're David Hasselhoff. And I know you're thinking about sending me the proof. Hurry up: the contest will be ending in under 48 hours. E-mail your entry to dryas (at) theedge (dot) ca or post it in the comments box.

Have I died and gone to heaven? David and Tom on the same page? And they might be related?
