Celebrate Elvis Presley's Birthday
Today would be Elvis Presley's 79th birthday. To celebrate the King of Rock n Roll, let's take a look at the impact his amazing life has had. So here are the best, the worst and the silliest impacts Elvis Presley has had on the world.
The Elvis SandwichNothing screams Elvis Presley more than a delicious fried peanut butter and banana sandwich with just a hint of bacon grease. Though it existed long before Elvis, it has become an icon of Presley's over the top personality and inevitable cardiac problems.
Everyone Loves Spoofing Jailhouse RockThe dance sequence in Elvis' 1957 film Jailhouse Rock has become iconic, and there have been dozens of homages over the years. Watch the original for nostalgia's sake.
Conspiracy TheoriesBefore tabloids were obsessed with cheating celebrities, they filled their pages with Elvis sightings. The King lives!
Historical Meeting + Photoshop = MemeWho's darker, Nixon or Vader? The world may never know, but I'm pretty sure this meeting is proof that the Illuminati are running the Death Star.
The Hip Thrusts Still Put The World In A TitherElvis the Pelvis, shocked the nation with his gyrating legs. His wobbling quickened the pulse of so many teens that Michael Jackson modified and continued it 30 years later, and brave artists like Timberlake struggle to this day to keep the hip shaking alive.
Even French Canadians Are FansThis teen from Quebec blew the internet outta the water with his performance of Blue Christmas landing him on Ellen. Just goes to show, new Elvis impersonators are born everyday. And, why not? He brought this whole Rock n Roll thing to the forefront of American culture, and still holds several Billboard Chart Records. He's the Kingl.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Presley
