So I went and found screen shots of the infamous scene in high definition just to analyze how similar this guy is to Elvis Presley. I poured through several images of Elvis during various stages of his life to compare to the screen shots of the mysterious cameo. (NOTE: Elvis Presley's natural hair color was NOT black. He dyed it black for his stage/performing appearance. His natural hair color is DARK BLONDE).
And here is a picture to prove that Elvis could, in fact, grow a beard.
Well, I can say that the background guy definitely looks a lot like Elvis (which at first I thought was ludicrous), and if one was to make any point of contention it would be the nose, which is a facial trait that droops and changes as one grows older.
This prompted me to investigate the "evidence" that Elvis-death skeptics use in order to fuel their belief in his beyond-the-grave escapades. You can check them out on a website like IS ELVIS DEAD OR ALIVE? which provides interesting snippets like:
... Elvis's name is spelled wrong on his headstone. Elvis's full name is Elvis Aron Presley, but on his grave his middle name is spelled incorrectly with two a's.
... Elvis's coffin required several pall bearers because it weighed 900 pounds. Attendants of the funeral reported that the air around the coffin was rather cool. It is suspected that the coffin contained an air conditioning unit to keep a wax body cool - a wax body that was a replica of the King designed to fool funeral-goers. ...
... Two hours after Elvis's death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the same name Elvis had used as an alias several times before. ...
... Elvis had many reasons to fake his death. Elvis's life was in danger. He had recently lost $10,000,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a California based organization called the "Fraternity" that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection - perhaps in the form of a new life and identity compliments of the witness relocation program. ...
Although it's hard to say whether any of these facts are true. I couldn't find them anywhere.
It is something to mull over though. In a way, I like to believe he's fooled everyone, because it would be a serious case of LULZ.
