The former Baywatch star, 67, has released a punk album full of covers and today brought out a video for his version of The Lords Of The New Church's 1982 single Open Your Eyes. In the video he is seen crooning in front of old fashioned TVs as he does some dodgy dad dancing and winks at the camera. Songs covered on the album include Echo and The Bunnymen's Lips Like Sugar, The Jesus and Mary Chain's Head On, Modern English's I Melt With You and David Bowie's Heroes.
