Eurovision 2013 and 2016 host Petra Mede has won legions of fans owing to her good humour, quick wit and stellar use of irony. But following a Swedish Awards show on Monday, it’s clear that former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff is not among them.
As Aftonbladet reports, The Hoff was invited to Sweden as a special guest at Guldbaggegalan — one of the most prestigious film awards shows in Sweden. As part of his invite he presented a series of leitmotifs to the short film “Kung Fury”, even singing the theme song.
After the quirky performance Petra — tongue planted firmly in her cheek — had this to say: “Thank you Mr Hasselhoff. It was an experience to have you here.” She then coughed, which made the audience laugh — but left Hasselhoff fuming.
After the gala he tweeted, “Thank you to the host who put me down with her comment it was an experience to have you here…Asshole!”
