Two local Kiwi artists shared a “once-in-a-lifetime” interaction with none other than ‘Baywatch’ star David Hasselhoff and comedian Rhys Darby.
23-year-old Jacob Root and 22-year-old Cole Ferrand surprised the two celebs with a tribute artwork on the streets of Christchurch.
The pair were approached to be a part of the television show David and Rhys are filming right here in New Zealand. Of course, they jumped at the opportunity.
Jacob and Cole toured the stars around the city’s street art - much of it being their own works - then surprised the pair with a tribute piece painted on a Chorus cabinet in the CBD.
Jacob spoke to our very own Breeze Canterbury’s Hilary Muir to chat about his and Cole’s encounter with The Hoff.
“We did a whole interview with him and talked about Christchurch, our upbringing during the earthquakes and how we got into art,” Jacob said of his three hours with the ‘Baywatch’ star.
“It was a once-in-a-lifetime day!”
You'll be able to catch the artists on the show when it comes out, but until then, you can check out Jacob and Cole’s mural at 235 Bealey Ave in Christchurch.
This isn’t the only sighting of The Hoff here in NZ.
Rachel Hart, also known as the One-Handed Baker, surprised her Instagram followers by sharing a snap of her encounter with the legendary actor at the Sky Tower on Friday.
Well, it seems as though The Hoff is making the most out of his time in the country, and we’ll be keeping an eager eye on what he does next.
