Jump in My Car
"Jump in My Car" is a song originally recorded by Australian rock band Ted Mulry Gang in 1975. The song was written by Australian singer Ted Mulry and guitarist Les Hall, and was the first hit for the band in Australia. "Jump In My Car" was number one in Australia in 1976 for six weeks.
The original 1975 recording was sampled by TISM in their 1998 song "There's Gonna Be Sex Tonite". In a satirical video on their album www.tism.wanker.com they state that "Jump In My Car" 'sensitively' covers of the issue of date rape.
Guitarist Chris Spedding released the song as a 45 (RAK 228) in January 1976. The song was also included on his self-titled album released the following April.

It received publicity from the "Get Hasselhoff to Number 1" campaign, which originally campaigned to get "Looking for Freedom" released but later switched its attentions to "Jump in My Car". The song also received backing from BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills and The Sun newspaper.
Hasselhoff also sang this song on an episode of the TV show America's Got Talent.
Hasselhoff's cover of the song was a running gag on Quizmania.
According to David Hasselhoff, the video was intended as a joke, a parody of himself.
