David Hasselhoff Confirms Name Change (For Real!)

by at .  Updated at .

David Hasselhoff has removed the hassle from spelling his last name.

By removing the "Hassel" from his last name. For real!

The former Baywatch actor and surprisingly popular singer (in Germany, at least) has made the official and legal announcement:

His name is now David Hoff. That's it. No more and no less.

The actor has been referred to as The Hoff for many years anyway, so we suppose this change makes sense. In sort of the same way it makes sense for Lindsay Lohan to have dressed up as Sharon Tate on Charles Manson's 81st birthday.

But Hasselhoff Hoff isn't messing around.

In the video featured here, Hasselhoff Hoff even shows off the legal certificate to prove that his last named has been cut way down.

"I've been waiting to drop the Hassel from my life for years, " the star declares in the footage. "Now it's official."

Hasselhoff Hoff certainly isn't the first celebrity to change his name late in his career.

Somewhere, P. Diddy and Snoop Lion are nodding along in agreement, totally understanding where Hasselhoff Hoff is coming from.

It's unclear at the moment just how this will impact Hasselhoff's Hoff's career, but two things are apparent right now;

  1. How much worse could it get?
  2. Think of how much easier it will be for Starbucks baristas to write out his name now?

Check out the following video to see Hasselhoff Hoff offer up supposed proof of this last name change.

(UPDATE: Okay, so the actor's rep now says this is part of some kind of ad campaign and it not official.)
