David Hasselhoff is back as a Baywatch to save the turtles in the SodaStream advert.
The great stars of television in the 90s have no qualms about returning to star in the characters that made them famous. After so long, nostalgia helps us better digest these moments of seeing our idols of yesteryear already advanced in years and with little ease of movement.
Of course, it is the example of Bruce Willis, who has participated in commercials such as Die Hard or in the hilarious Doraemon commercial. Another one who has no problem coming back is David Hasselhoff, who puts on the mythical Baywatch jacket again to save… the turtles.
That’s the premise of SodaStream’s advert for World Earth Day. The company that manufactures sparkling water machines, owned by PepsiCo, has launched a campaign to celebrate Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22.
And it is that the brand has promised to make a donation for each machine it sells in the world. These donations will go to the NGO See Turtles, which is dedicated to the protection of sea turtles. For this, he has had David Hasselhoff, the actor who played Mitch Buchannon in the legendary series “Baywatch”.
In the SodaStream advert we see David Hasselhoff reporting on the campaign in a humorous tone until an alarm goes off. In this case it is the call to save a turtle since someone in the world has bought a SodaStream device. He and other security guards quickly go to the scene to arrive just in time.
In the words of the actor in a statement: “SodaStream’s Earth Day campaign will be crucial in helping to bring global attention to the importance of ensuring the survival of the planet. Each of us must do our bit and contribute to a more sustainable world. Doing nothing is not an option.”
