Said to be an unlikely team-up, Justin Beiber and David Hasselhoff are said to be working on a new video for an upcoming single of the controversial popstar.
Photos from Splash News Online showed Beiber riding in tandem with the veteran actor inside the latter’s signature Knight Rider 1980s KITT ‘Talking Car’ while they are shooting a scene somewhere in the Venice Beach, California.
The Baywatch actor is not also successful in containing his excitement with the new project as he posts on Twitter a photo with him wearing a gray ‘Don’t Hassle The Hoff’ T-shirt with the As Long As You Love Me singer, Aussie popstar Cody Simpson and Emile, said to be the director for the music video.
He captions the photo saying “‘What a great day @CodySimpson @justinbieber Emile our director for new video …
signing t shirts for charity! RESPECT!'” Sources said that the photo has been taken afterwards it was posted on Hasselhoff’s Twitter.
A separate Twitter post in Beiber’s account on Monday also confirmed that, indeed, he is collaborating with Simpson and the X-Factor judge.
New music video.
@CodySimpson @DavidHasselhoff,” he wrote.
Reports from the Daily Mail stated that the video is for the first single included in an upcoming duets album by Justin Beiber and Cody Simpson set to be released on November this year under the supervision of their manager, Scooter Braun.
In a previous interview with The Daily Telegraph, Simpson has talked his role in the album and how it is to work with the Boyfriend singer.
“It is a smack bang duets (album). Justin has been a good mate of mine for a while.
Its just us writing.
He told me he felt like I’d figured myself out and have grown into what he knows I will be so he was like, ‘I see you as that guitarist, singer songwriter you’ve always wanted to be’.
I play all the guitars on the album” he said.
Meanwhile, People asked Hasselhoff of what is to be expected about the video but the Knight Rider star simply said, “‘You’ll hear more about it, but we’re just keeping it quiet because it’s really a cool video, and we had a blast.” Further, he added, “We had a lot of fun, and he’s [Justin] a cool guy.”
