The Elvis Night Experience (A visual history)

Me, my buddy Price, and my buddy Andy set out on Thursday night to experience the madness that is Elvis week. Here are the pictures of the different Elvi that we met downtown. Instead of posting every picture from the night, I tried to narrow them down a little to ones from different cities or countries. Finland Elvis and some pimp...Virgina Beach Elvis
The Sydney, Australia Elvi
Birmingham, Alabama Elvis England Elvis Scotland Elvis North Carolina and El Paso Elvi Salt Lake City trucker Elvis Next Best Thing Elvis (from NBC TV show The Next Best Thing)
German Elvis was like 7 ft. tall and was the only jerk we met all night, everyone else could not have been cooler and happier to be down there. Italian Elvis Wales Elvis might have been a tranny Iceland Elvis Last but not least, this guy did not have anything to do with Elvis, but he had by far the best outfit of the night and it was not even close...
I have lived in Memphis for 7 years now, but this year was the first time I ever went to anything going on with Elvis week. You really should check it out next year if you get the chance. We met people from at least 25 different countries that were in town just for vigil and concert. Elvis fans (outside the Germans) might be the nicest people I have met. I have a new respect for the magnitude of this event to say the least. Thanks for listening to the show and reading the blog.
