Big Elvis Party ... and You Missed It!

Posted By on Fri, Feb 9, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Hey, did you hear about the fantastic Elvis party last night? It was amazing. They had 12 Elvii, including the reigning Danish Elvis champ! More than 350 people showed up. There was nationwide television coverage, and the American ambassador to Denmark came and wore a gold Elvis suit.

Oh, you weren't in Copenhagen? Well, you missed a heck of a darn time, you betcha. Fortunately, there's video from a Danish TV station.

This is some crazy wack: A bunch of Danes wearing leis standing around what looks a tiny hotel pool; lots of impersonators; and lots of unintelligible interviews, except for the occasional "Toooopelow, Meessissippi."

It's a fairly long clip, but stick with it. At the end, a couple, obviously driven into a sexual frenzy by the King's wild devil music, jumps into the pool. Yumpin' Yiminy, Lars! Rock on!

And, the reporter's sign-off? You guessed it: "Elvis is in de building."
