The Universal Posters website is offering you the opportunity to decide what David Hasselhoff will say on the autographed photo poster you order.

What message would your friend or family member most like to get from The Hoff, posing as a sexy bare-chested surfing Santa, or a suave, cigar-smoking convertible driver in a pinstriped suit?
