David Hasselhoff: Knight Rider's KITT was Gay

Knight_rider_poster_2David Hasselhoff recently told a crowd at Trinity College in Dublin, where he was promoting a book, movie, and his latest cheesetastic single, that KITT was gay:

"We have some fairly X-rated outtakes on 'Knight Rider.' Kitt was constantly asking, 'Do you want me to take you home Michael?' in that very camp voice of his."

KITT was actually the onboard computer of the Knight 2000, the tricked-out Pontiac Trans Am that Hasselhoff drove in the TV series. The original Knight 2000 can be seen at the Cars of the Stars Motor Museum in Keswick, Cumbria, England (you can thank Wikipedia for that little factoid).

If the Knight 2000 had actually been gay, it probably would have been a Volkswagen Cabriolet.

Knight Rider, like other successful series from the 80's, is being developed into a movie (here's the recently surfaced teaser poster) planned for release in 2008.

  1. You, of all people, guilty of gay stereotyping? Shame on you, Mr. Towle! If Kitt were gay, it certainly COULD have been a volkswagen could ALSO have been a Jeep, a Volvo, a thick, long, sleek black stretch limo (woof) or even (dare I?) a HUMMER...

  7. KITT gay? Well maybe if they had the foresight to change the voice or something... Or perhaps they though it was cool back in the 80's to have a campy annoying talking car. Although I do have to give kudo's for my favorite episode: KITT vs.KARR!
