That's the infamous clip from 2007 in which one of Hasselhoff's two daughters pleads with her shirtless, intoxicated father to stop drinking, all while he munches on a hamburger.

Originally a piece of little-watched NBC prime-time fluff, Baywatch went on to bask in its syndicated and sun-baked goodness, bolstering the careers of David Hasselhoff, Carmen Electra and the like. But first and foremost in fans' minds when they think of that gorgeous gaggle of lifeguards is Pamela Anderson, who is currently serving as spokesperson for the series and its five-disc Season 1 and Season 2 DVD sets, slow-motion jogging into stores today. Never one to turn down a date with Pammy, TVGuide.com gave her our best eight minutes.

David Chokachi, Beyond the Break
The surf is up on The N this summer with its new drama Beyond the Break (premiering June 2 at 8 pm/ET). But while the teen-skewed show may feature a slew of young girls and guys in the surf community, there is an adult (of sorts) around. Baywatch alum David Chokachi stars as Justin, a coach and a mentor to a group of up-and-coming surfer girls. TVGuide.com caught up with Chokachi to ask him what it's like to be back at the beach.
