|Elvis in Television Commercials
Elvis' astounding legacy is never ending and his impact is reflected in the fact that Elvis is so often used in today's Television commercials. The recent resurgence started with the swinging Audi Elvis and was kicked into this new millennium by the Nike World Cup soccer advert - which then helped Elvis hit Number One in the charts. One of the very best was the recent BBC Radio 2 advert with Elvis introducing his band of Superstars. As suggested by John Pietz, EIN presents sixteen TV adverts featuring Elvis. With special thanks to John Pietz.
