David Hasselhoff is auctioning off a giant replica of himself that was used in “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie” and it’s estimated to fetch more than $1 million.
Aptly named “Big Dave,” the figure stretches out to 14 feet long and is an enlarged image of a shirtless Hoff with red board shorts — a homage to his days on Baywatch. In the 2004 Nickelodeon film, however, Big Dave uses himself as a boat for SpongeBob and Patrick so they can quickly return to Bikini Bottom and give King Neptune his crown back.
Hasselhoff announced the auction of Big Dave on Instagram, sharing a short video that sees him standing atop the statue. “Everything goes, including Big Dave,” he said. Bidding begins at $100,000 USD but the actor is hoping for the item to go for $750,000 USD to $1.5 million USD.
Live bidding for The Hoff Auction begins January 23.
