Go back in time to fight Hitler with David Hasselhoff’s “True Survivor” music video

David Hasselhoff

If one is going back in time to fight a kung fu Hitler, one will probably need a kickass theme song to accompany one. And who better to deliver that anthem than Germany’s favorite adopted son, David Hasselhoff? Kung Fury is an over-the-top film that was successfully funded on Kickstarter and will debut on YouTube on May 28. The description of the film is as follows:

During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assassinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has its foundation in ’80s cop movies.


In advance of the film’s release, the filmmakers have created and posted a music video, with David Hasselhoff performing the track “True Survivor.” The song was written by Jörgen Elofsson and Mitch Murder while the video features post-apocalyptic street punks, the Nintendo Power Glove, dinosaurs, explosions, giant vikings, and The Hoff mugging as he shows off some sweet moves of his own.
