The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 DVD will include a music video for “Guardians Inferno,” the David Hasselhoff disco song that played over the film’s end credits. The film’s director, James Gunn, announced the news via Facebook, where he also shared a poster for the upcoming short.
Hasselhoff is front and center on the poster wearing a white, sequined disco outfit. Alongside him are Guardians cast Karen Gillan (Nebula), Gunn himself, Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), David Bautista (Drax), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and Michael Rooker (Yondu). A masked robot stands to the right of Hasselhoff, but his or her identity has not been revealed.
Chris Pratt (Peter Quill), Vin Diesel (Groot), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), and Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha) have not been confirmed for the music video and do not appear on the poster. It is unclear if they have any involvement, however one could easily be the mystery robot in disguise.
Hasselhoff makes a brief but surprisingly emotional appearance in the Guardians sequel. As a child, Quill told other kids that Hasselhoff was his dad to explain why his father wasn’t around. Later, Quill’s real father, Ego the Living Planet, appeared as Hasselhoff to tease Quill for being “childish.” Hasselhoff closes out the movie with “Guardians Inferno,” which he performs with a band called The Sneepers.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be available on digital release August 8, 2017 and on Blu-ray and DVD on August 22.
