"Baywatch" stud David Hasselhoff, who's best known for saving lives on '90s TV show "Baywatch," was back on the beach Monday with a very different look. Instead of donning his famous red trunks and lifeguard gear, the now 60-year-old Hoff donned a Santa suit and drove a sleigh full of Christmas gifts and decorations along the shore of Southport, England. Hasselhoff's red-and-white costume was traditional aside from the red shorts, which were similar to those he wore in his "Baywatch" days.

Though it was less than 30 degrees outside, Hasselhoff still gave a big smile as he posed for the festive pics. The photo shoot followed a survey of Britons by Nikon Coolpix that named Hasselhoff the celebrity with whom people would most like to have their photo taken with instead of Santa, according to the U.K.'s The Daily Mail.

"It's been fun to get involved with this very merry photo and I am honored so many Brits chose me as an alternative to Santa," Hasselhoff told the newspaper. "It must be something to do with the red suit. We went to pretty extreme lengths to get this Christmas creation, so I hope people like the picture."
