Heros, Kindred Spirits and the Hoff…

If you need to talk about Knight Rider in Mainland China, you just need to know he’s called 霹雳游侠 (pīlìyóuxiá). This phrase will come in handy when you’re showing all of your friends “The Hoff’s” amazing “Jump Into My Car” video. Yes, the girls in the video don’t look 20, and yes, the Hoff is officially 56!

One thought on “Heros, Kindred Spirits and the Hoff…”
