Hasselhoff: An Interspecies Lover?

I was going through big-time Hasselhoff withdrawal until I found this music video I'm "crazy for." It's perfectly normal in the beginning--that is, until we realize that he's singing his love song to a puppy that's hidden from plain view and probably on the verge of suffocation. Wait...what?! But luckily, the pup escapes and attempts retribution via rollercoaster endangerment. Your typical happy ending.
