Too late.

Besides being a campy parody of himself, this video oddly combines or confuses the 007 James Bond "thing," with the far more subtle and interesting (if less well-known) work of Patrick McGoohan, first as a secret agent in "Danger Man," or "Secret Agent," as it was billed in the states. The song in the video was the theme to this show.

An extension or spin-off was "The Prisoner," in which McGoohan, still a secret agent of some sort, appears to have been kidnapped and imprisoned on an unusual, but all the more sinister for that, isolated island. There are only 16 episodes of The Prisoner, many written or directed by McGoohan. Exactly who is in charge, or why McGoohan is a prisoner, is never made clear. McGoohan is "Number 6," while the fellow in charge (who is replaced in every episode) is "Number 2."

And, yes, that's the same Patrick McGoohan who appears (nearly 30 years later) in Braveheart as Edward I.

Could it possibly be more obvious that he's lip-synching to a pre-recorded tape?

I just think it's nice David Hasselhoff has found work.

More shoes. What's with the shoes?

[I can't say "feet" or they'll think I'm odd.]

What's the shoes thing?
