Today David Hasselhoff debuted his new song, “True Survivor,” an ’80s earworm par excellence. The video features every kind of ’80s nostalgia: lots of neon, old computers, some dude wailing on a keytar. Also: Nazis.
This perfect storm of action-movie tropes and ’80s kitsch comes to us via Kung Fury, a Kickstarter-funded Swedish martial arts film written and directed by David Sandberg. Set in Miami in, unsurprisingly, the 1980s, the movie follows a high-kicking cop who goes back in time to defeat Adolf Hitler, who is apparently a notorious master of kung fu. Kung Fury will be released soon on YouTube, and the ’Hoff’s pump-up song headlines the soundtrack.
