David Hasselhoff just did the coolest thing ever for filmmakers

This week, actor David Hasselhoff lent a hand to the filmmakers behind the epic "Kung Fury" movie by starring in an over-the-top 80s themed music video called "True Survivor."

Receiving over $630,000 in donations on Kickstarter, "Kung Fury" became an international sensation and put Swedish director David Sandberg in the spotlight.

The trailer for "Kung Fury" has garnered over 8 million views since being uploaded and now thanks to a special collaboration, David Hasselhoff has become part of the project to promote the film's release in May.

True Survivor

"True Survivor" takes audiences back to the 1980s with a smoke filled montage of leather jackets, SEGA style fighting, and David Hasselhoff walking through explosions.

"The 80s was about fun, action and heroes.  Kung Fury has it all!  I’m honored to be involved with David Sandberg, an up and coming force of nature in the animation digital entertainment world.  The song is perfect for me as I really am in real life a True Survivor." - David Hasselhoff


"Kung Fury" will be released on Youtube May 28th along with the full soundtrack.
