Hollywood, California - In what can only be described as an aborted attempt to make a home video for the light hearted TV series, 'America's Most Funny Video,' David Hasselhoff, of 'Bay Watch,' fame appears, ironically, bare-chested, drunk and despondent on a tape that surfaced last month, instead wins a prize. Producers of the ABC show announced today Hasselhoff's video has won first place in a special celebrity category. Behind the scenes, the show's executive producer has admitted the celebrity category thing was a bad idea.
"If it was not for the Hasselhoff video, the prize would have gone unclaimed," said the show's executive producer. "We thought we would be getting a flood of celebrity videos like the old Johnny Carson or The Rat Pack clips of celebrities doing silly fun stuff. Boy were we wrong."
Instead, the show has been flooded with a series of videos of celebrities in compromising positions that are not funny at all.
"We can't use most of them either. Not without having to move the show to cable or even pay for view," continued the executive producer.
This year's competition was between The Hasselhoff video and that of President Bush's little black dog in the White House.
Reportedly, the show's producers were ready to give the prize to Bush's little black dog video because it was of higher production quality, though many resented having to give Bush a prize because of their liberal leanings, until the judge's ruling that Hasselhoff won primary custody and full legal custody despite the video.
"That saved the day," said the executive producer.
David Hasselhoff could not be reached for comment, as he was busy with his girls on another family production venture. Apparently, Hasselhoff wanted his daughters to help him improve his skydiving techniques by video taping his jumps.
