David Hasselhoff Stars In Hilarious Guardians Vol. 2 Music Video

Welcome to the inferno. 

After a week of teasing from Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, Marvel Entertainment has unleashed a music video for David Hasselhoff's track "Inferno" from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack.

In the superhero sequel pic, Hasselhoff played a small but special role: the fantasy version of Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father. Pratt's Star-Lord revealed that he dreamt of Hasselhoff's image of his dear old dad, with Kurt Russell later popping up as his real father, Ego the Living Planet. During the credits sequence in Guardians Vol. 2, Hasselhoff's "Inferno" played. 

Performed by the fictional band Sneepers, an invention of Gunn and composer Tyler Bates', "Inferno" is cheesy disco music encapsulated, and the accompanying music video is much the same. Featuring Hasselhoff in an Elvis-like costume, Karen Gillan in a bright white pantsuit, big hair and even bigger bell-bottom flare pants, and lots of metallic lycra, the clip is equal parts hilarious and totally '80s. 

Earlier this week, Hasselhoff spoke with The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision about the possibility of collaborating with Gunn again in the future, and revealed that he'd previously asked the filmmaker to reboot an old TV series of his. 

"I've given some ideas to James for Knight Rider, and he responded in a big way," Hasselhoff said, referring to the NBC series that ran from 1982 to 1986. "If it does go forward, I don't want it to be spoofed like Baywatch or 21 Jump Street. Those films lose what it's about, and you have to respect the fans."

The "Inferno" music video was unveiled to promote the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 home entertainment release. Fans can purchase the film on Digital HD on August 8, and on other platforms August 22. 

While we wait to secure our own copies, find out what the sequel's post-credit scenes really mean.
