An Investigation into the Elvis Presley-Home Alone Evidence.

So, I'm sure a lot of you are aware of the Elvis Presley in Home Alone thing out there. If you are unfamiliar, here is a video presenting the so-called "evidence" of Mr. Presley's posthumous cameo. Keep in mind that at the time of Home Alone (1990), Elvis Presley would have been 55.

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.


  1. That fits Elvis to a "T". The Head movement is exactly what Elvis does just before he takes another breath as if he were still singing. It is out of habit and not a normal movement by most others. You can clearly see the "Extra" do the exact same thing and then take a deep breath.

    What in Hell is going on here People????

    1. the sigh and the the way he looks down are very similar to the way vernon presley sighs and drops his head when thanking the public for their letters of condolance; and who is it that goes walking passed the window behind him?

  2. I Love Elvis for the good man he is. He cares about people

  3. Elvis is definitely still alive, I saw him at the supermarket the other day.

  4. The extra in that film definitely has a resemblance to Elvis apart from the nose which can be seen clearer when the extra is pictured from a different angle of that screenshot, I do not believe his nose would have changed due to age, which at 55 is not really that old at all (and the extra does look like a well preserved 55 year old, which is how you would expect Elvis would have aged, rather like how Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp have aged well today) but has anyone considered that this could be a prosthetic nose, as Elvis's own could be too much of a giveaway? And the head movement is so uncanny! I'm commenting on this a few good years since the previous comments and it's interesting to note that nothing has surfaced online to rebuke the allegations that it is Elvis, for example that someone else has come forward to say that they were the extra in that film! Wonder why!

  5. it is now July of 2016 and I was also hoping to see if any information surfaced on this extra in Home Alone. Come on Elvis, fess up.
