See the traffic. David Hasselhoff was responsible for that. Because he was the one who tore down the Berlin Wall in 1989. Well, not really, that's just an urban legend - but he did sing on top of the Wall as part of the celebration since Hasselhoff  once had a huge musical recording career in Germany.
