Viva Viagra: Elvis The Pelvis Keeps It Up

Thankfully, Lisa Marie Presley does not work alone. Elvis’s fans help to keep the legend alive by oozing their bloated bodies into white trouser suits with rhinestone batwings and sweating under the lights of the Balti Curry Inn, Surbiton.

Few depart from the proscribed Elvis look, not daring to portray Elvis in his thinner years lest they appear guilty of heresy or going off-brand.

So it understandable Lisa Marie is “livid” that her father’s memory is being sullied.

As the Enquirer reports, Elvis and his pelvis are being employed to sell erectile dysfunction medication.

The mind boggles to suppose any Elvis fan needs such potions. The opening refrain to Good Rockin’ Tonight is thought to have created more human life than the entire Tommy Steele back catalogue and Dr Robert Winston combined.

But times move. And now Viva Las Vegas has been mutilated to Viva Viagra.

That this outrage should coincide with the 30th anniversary of Elvis’ death in a Paris tunnel is too bad. That it should coincide with his duet with daughter Lisa is shameful.

Lisa’s close harmony rendering of In The Ghetto, with her father in animatronic support, is both tasteful and what Elvis would have wanted.

If Elvis were alive he’d be 72 and able to stick up for himself…
