Vintage Video: New Order enlists David Hasselhoff for ‘Baywatch’-themed ‘Regret’ clip

The U.K. arm of Rhino Records this week uploaded a series of classic New Order videos to the label’s YouTube channel, giving us the perfect excuse to dedicate this installment of Vintage Video to one of our favorite clips: the band’s 1993 “Baywatch”-themed performance of “Regret,” filmed for “Top of the Pops.”

Legend has it New Order wanted to have David Hasselhoff lip-synch along to the song, but the show’s producers nixed that. Instead, you get Bernard SumnerStephen MorrisGillian Gilbert and a very shaggy Peter Hook miming away on the sand, surrounded by beach-going extras. Hasselhoff does stop by for a cameo, too, although it’s pretty tame.
