If there’s one thing James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies have going for them, it’s a love and appreciation for some amazing music from the ’70s and ’80s… Ok, there are also some amazing characters, story structures, CGI effects, and a hell of a lot more, but those Awesome Mixes are, well, AWESOME! Fans who purchase a copy of the second film for their home collections will be treated to an additional feature that music lovers and fans of the film will absolutely die for: a special music video made just for the fans and it stars David Hasselhoff because… well, he’s the Hof!

As of the drafting of this article, James Gunn is working on a music video for the closing credits song “Inferno” to be included in the home video release of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. The incredible reveal comes shortly after Gunn also revealed that the movie will be the first MCU/Disney release to come out in 4K UltraHD via Blu-ray and Digital.

Gunn is all about making his fans happy and keeping them informed so the word got out via a Tweet straight from the director’s keyboard:

The date for the release of the film (and attached music video) has yet to be released, but a listing on Target’s website for the film suggests a “street date” of August 22nd, 2017. This is a second-party retailer and has not been confirmed by Gunn, Disney, or Marvel and falls a few months after the film’s premiere, which is a standard practice. Regardless, it should be released soon if not towards the end of August.

UPDATE: Well what do you know, we found the video.

The Sneepers‘ “Inferno” played during the ending credits with vocals by the Hof. In the image Tweeted by Gunn, Hasselhoff is standing front and center while the Sneepers stand behind him looking very much like the stars of the film (Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, and Dave Bautista). Here’s the official song from the film:
