The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, David Hasselhoff's Lifeguard Swim Trunks

original movie costume

“Hooray for Hasselhoff!” This custom-made pair of lifeguard swim trunks was worn by David Hasselhoff in the 2004 comedy The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. While being an animated film, one of its most memorable scenes is when SpongeBob and Patrick surface on land and meet a live-action Hasselhoff. The Hoff gentlemanly lends his woolly back to ferry them across the ocean with the speed and precision of a finely-tuned outboard motor. A 12-foot, 750-pound animatronic replica of the Baywatch beefcake was created for filming the close-ups. After shooting wrapped, Hasselhoff took home the massive prop, which cost $100,000 to build and is composed of two sections brimming with yak hair, and had it consigned to Julien’s Auctions a decade later to help raise money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. However, according to the Los Angeles Times, the oversize dummy, which had an estimate of $20,000-$30,000, was pulled at the last minute because the non-dummy had grown too attached to it. Obtained from Theme Park Connection, this costume was originally acquired by Premiere Props directly from production.
