David Hasselhoff may have delivered some wooden performances in the past, but it’s his cardboard cutouts that are most appealing to fans. Cumberland Farms has reported the disappearance of 550 cutouts — depicting the Baywatch star in a vest, clutching an iced coffee — from its convenience stores around the country in recent weeks.

AP reports that Cumberland brand strategy specialist Kate Ngo says only about 20 remain for the roughly 570 stores in New England and Florida.

Speaking to NBC’s Boston-based station WHDH-TV, Hasselhoff took the news of the thefts in good humor stating, “I just hope nobody gets in trouble but I encourage everybody to go out and see what they can do about stealing a Hoff, but please have a cup of coffee while doing it.”
