What the heck.
Why is everybody alleging that this poor guy is popular here. From the beginning (the Knight Rider TV series), beside of some little boys, who were more impressed by Kid the car, everybody laught about this clown and nobody understood the later success of Baywatch. (Well, girls in swimsuites . But if you wanted to see boobs, there were better possibilitys here in Germany. We are not so prude, you can see them really naked everywhere here. But this is another subject. )
Once and for all: please stop this insulting rumor.
