(Newser) – Warning: The promos for Comedy Central’s roast of David Hasselhoff might just be enough to make you like the troubled actor again. The Baywatch star and German music phenom was roasted Sunday night by Comedy Central regulars like Gilbert Gottfried, as well as newcomers like Jerry Springer and Hulk Hogan. A few zingers courtesy of E!:

  • Seth MacFarlane: “He's multi-lingual. He can speak English, Spanish, German, and...whatever the fuck that language was in the cheeseburger video.”

  • Jeffrey Ross: “What a lucky break—an alcoholic that gets cast in a show about a car that drives itself!”
  • Seth MacFarlane: “Marlee Matlin called and said, 'Please, David, no more singing.’”
  • Pamela Anderson: “I remember how nervous I was on my first day of Baywatch because I can't swim. But David was so sweet. He pulled me aside and said, 'Don't worry, I can't act.'”
  • Pamela Anderson: “I really want to work with you again someday, but you know, there is just no role for somebody like me in gay porn."
The roast airs August 15—and it marks the first time Hasselhoff has addressed his infamous "cheeseburger video." To watch that classic, and see what the Hoff had to say about it, click here.
