In one of the lamer crime sprees in recent memory, thieves in New England and Florida have stolen 550 of Cumberland Fams' 570 life-sized cut-outs of David Hasselhoff. Why does Cumberland Farms have 570 cut-outs of the Knight Rider and Baywatch star? Well, the chain uses the Hoff to advertise their iced coffee. Seems that people want the ad more than the beverage. 

When Hasselhoff was asked his opinion on the thefts, the Hoff said, "I think it's fantastic, and I encourage everybody out there to get more." Though one would think that the market for life-sized cut-outs of a 60-year-old David Hasselhoff in a tank top is pretty small.
