Yes, you CAN own a giant sculpture of David Hasselhoff


Written by:

If you’ve ever wished you could own a giant sculpture of the most watched man on TV, well, now’s your chance. A life-size replica of international superstar and “Baywatch” alum David Hasselhoff is currently on sale as part of a “Hofficial” online auction of the actor’s personal items, featuring “screen and stage worn wardrobe, awards, scripts, toys, autographed items, photos, music, film, and television memorabilia.”

The ultimate David Hasselhoff memorabilia

The replica is from 2004’s “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,” a live-action/animated adventure comedy in which Hasselhoff made a pretty memorable cameo

The sale has been organized by Diligent Auction Services and is running exclusively through bidding platform LiveAuctioneers. 

Per the site, “Big Dave” is estimated to be worth between $700,000 to $1.5 million. It’s currently listed at $975,000 with six bids in the queue — though given the number of David Hasselhoff (and, perhaps, SpongeBob SquarePants) fans out there, that could change at any moment. 

Final live bidding is set to take place on Jan. 31 between noon and 2 p.m. eastern standard time. A portion of the proceeds will go to charity. 

If you don’t have space (or the funds) for such a big piece of Americana, you could consider springing for the mask used to create “Big Dave” — that’s currently listed for $200.
