The “Hoffsicle”

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Jul 7, 2011 by

I’ve never been a television person. I can go years without using my TV (when I have a working one) for anything but watching VHSs and DVDs.  (The exception: the Ohio State-Michigan game, if I can’t find friend or family with an available big-screen TV that afternoon.)

I never watched Baywatch or Night Rider, so David Hasselhoff was not on my radar, until … I heard a mention of the “Hoffsicle” on NPR. (Yes, I do use a radio in the car.)

It seems that despite a sluggish career, Hasselhoff was voted “smoothest TV personality of 2011”. (It is not at all clear who did the voting!) Del Monte, sensing an irresistible pun, and in honor of National Ice Cream Month, has created a raspberry-flavored popsicle shaped like David Hasselhoff—bare-chested and from the waist up.  (I am not making this up!)

The company has even created a 2 ½ minute video of David and assorted women licking its latest frosty creation.  Really!  My favorite moment: David’s comment, “They will not be licking me, they will be licking a popsicle. And it’s not weird at all, it’s really cool.”
