In James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) finally meets his biological father for the first time in Ego (Kurt Russell). When Peter was a child, he would tell his classmates that his father was actually David Hasselhoff, and the reason why he was never around was because he was busy filming Knightrider.
There are a couple nods in the film to Hasselhoff. Besides him being the ideal image of a father figure to Peter during his childhood years, Hasselhoff’s likeness is also shown in the film when Ego transforms to reflect the actor as he is today.
But one of the funniest aspects of the film is that in Awesome Mix Vol. 2, a special track titled Inferno is included. The song is also performed by Hasselhoff himself, and it plays during the film’s upbeat end credits in which we see some of the Guardians dance to the beat.
The official music video for Inferno will be available for our viewing pleasure very soon. James Gunn recently tweeted that it will be online soon, hinting at appearances from members of the cast, Hasselhoff and even himself:
