In this clip the American actor, with forceful gestures, urges the Germans to protect themselves against the disease by declaring straight away, in the language of Goethe: “

Aermel hoch!

(roll up your sleeve, in French)

”.

And a few hours after its publication, proof that David Hasselhoff's notoriety is still strong, the little film will have already been seen more than 200,000 times on social networks.

Like a powerful symbol, this little film was shot in a setting inspired by the title

Looking for Freedom

, a record which in Germany became the hymn, as spontaneous as it was popular, of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The mocking Germans

A true international icon, David Hasselhoff, now 68 years old, justified in this video shot for the German health ministry his commitment to health: “

I, David Hasselhoff, I am supposed to be a hero thanks to Alert in Malibu, to my role as Knight Rider in K 2000 and also to my involvement in the fall of the Berlin Wall. But now I say with humility that I have found my freedom by getting the vaccine. So you too by imitating me, you will be able to find your freedom.

"And joining the action to the word, the actor did not hesitate to show the bandage proving that he had been vaccinated.

This health clip was not unanimous across the Rhine, far from it.

Many Germans mockingly recalled that they were still waiting for an appointment to be vaccinated.

David Hasselhoff's video comes out as Germany initially experienced a slow start to roll out vaccination.

Today the health system across the Rhine seems to have caught up some of its delay.

About 47% of the population has now received at least one dose.
