It's pronounced El-vii, there are 6 of them: Love Me Tender Elvis, GI Joe Elvis, 60's
Rockin Elvis, Charro, 70's Come-Back
Elvis, and the poor old Over The Edge Died In The Loo Elvis. But now there is another
Elvis. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting Extreme Elvis. I've only felt
this way once before while watching what appeared to be Snuff Films with a cute bartender
giving me the eye. It was a combination of wanting to hurl and being turned on at the
Extreme Elvis is more like a Back From The Dead Zombie Sleaze Bag Dirty Old Fat Man
Elvis. I saw Extreme Elvis at Dada Fest 2001. I
didn't actually catch his act, but I did see him. Mostly around the Outdoor Smoking
Lounge. He sang a little for us. He was really hammy but with an overall Elvisness.
Apparently he sings really crappy renditions of Elvis tunes while stripping out of his
jumpsuit. He kicks off his shoes, urinates into one and drinks it. Then he sort of
jiggles around the stage nekkid.
The best thing about Extreme Elvis is this alleged letter from The Graceland Staff:

ELVIS- DO YOU KNOW ABUOT THIS GUY?? Date: 5 Apr 2001 08:28:42 -0700
Yours is one of several messages we've recently received about Extreme Elvis. Our
licensing/legal people have run across this one in their continuous observation of
Elvis-related activity on the Internet. We are copying them on the messages we are
getting about this.
Generally speaking, there are some aspects of impersonating Elvis (even doing grossly
unflattering parodies) that fall under First Amendment rights of expression. There are
also some types of activities related to impersonation that do involve trademark or
copyright infringements for which we do have some legal recourse.
And there are lots of "gray areas". The whole subject is very complicated and the world is full of Elvis impersonations and parodies
to have to contend with. This is a never-ending challenge. We can't get into any detailed
dialogue specifcally about Extreme Elvis at this time other than to say it does have our
attention. But, do know that we share your dismay and disgust and that we greatly
appreciate your concern. Best wishes, The Graceland Staff

I'll give the guy a half a point of Chicken John for
the title Love Me Chicken
Tenders. But that's IT. Otherwise, I too share in this dismay and disgust and I
have GREAT concern for That Which I Hold Sacred And True. Extreme Elvis is purely vulgar
and decadent with too much ham and not enough cheese. It is most definitely NOT Elvis.
Is that splooge on Extreme Elvis' face?
Awwww, MAN! No one needs to see Elvis like that.
