David Hasselhoff managed to make not only a surprise cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, but he also composed a song for it as well – Guardians Inferno. Now that song will be getting an official music video – directed by James Gunn himself – for the movie’s Blu-Ray release.
Hasselhoff was discussed in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 as a model for the kind of dad that Peter “Star-Lord” Quill wished that he’d had growing up, and the actor made a surprise appearance as a form of Ego the Living Planet when he was regenerating. But beyond his thematic importance to the movie’s plot and his unexpected cameo, The ‘Hoff also performed a new song over the credits called “Guardians Inferno” – and the movie’s director has just announced that it’ll be getting a music video with the home video release:

Knowing Gunn’s sense of humor, expect an abundance of faux-retro vibes from the music video and plenty of Hasselhoff hijinks.
