Clothing chain C&A has a new news paper and magazine ad featuring Elvis. Earlier this year, C&A surprised the fans with a TV commercial (footage taken from the movie 'Spinout') that shows Elvis performing at a party with some lovely ladies. This time the "Love and Kiss" campaign is inspired by Elvis's 1957 movie "Jailhouse Rock".
And don't forget Elvis's comments (million $ quartet) saying he saw Jackie in Vegas & was awed by his version of Don't Be Cruel. which he thought was better than his.
Whoa there Mickey. 'Every' Black artist stole stage mannerisms from Elvis? That is some assumtion. Why dont you post that on a non-Elvis web site and see what kind of feedback you get? Elvis himself admitted he was a huge fan of Jackie Wilson and when he does Return To Sender in GGG he is cleary aping Jackie's stage movements. C'mon man, that was one ludicrous statement.
Dgirl - so where does this quote from Jackie Wilson fit into your analysis? "A lot of people have accused Elvis of stealing the black man's music, when in fact, almost every black solo entertainer copied his stage mannerisms from Elvis".
Not a bad poster. Decent idea. I still love that image of E, but it's poorly proportioned with the chick that's been inserted. She looks bigger than him. I think a lot of people don't realize that he was 6 feet and he certainly doesn't look it here. Not like that's the most important thing, but just another thing that people don't know. He wasn't some short fat little dude.
Btw, Harvey, I like your comment. Sort of random plain thought. Agree and dig it.
James Brown & Jackie Wilson were the best dancers period. Their moves were amazing. MJ was also very good. Elvis gyrated and shook his hips and had some funky leg moves but he was never a dancer, which he also admitted. He did a great dance scene in Jailhouse Rock, but by & large his stage act did not include dancing like the others I mentioned. Just look at any old footage of James & Jackie.
Elvis had better socks than MJ and drove more cars. His hair was better and he had better girlfriends. Even Elvis' monkey was better than MJ's monkey, and MJ was never in the army like Elvis was. MJ never sang 'You Gave Me A Mountain' and never made as many films as Elvis did. MJ never appeared in Hawaii as many times as Elvis and never ever made a TV special for NBC in 1968. Elvis had more turbans than MJ and MJ never flew across the country in his plane to get a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Nor did he ever make a film where he dressed up as a navy frogman. Therefore, Elvis is the best. Simples.
The fact that Elvis sold 1 billion + records & is the #1 selling artist & fans go to Graceland by the numbers & he's in the 3 Hall Of Fames has nothing to do with the fact that MJ was a better dancer. Elvis basically girated (although he did well in Jailhouse Rock & to a lesser degree in Viva LV). Elvis was no MJ , Jackie Wilson or James Brown. Enough said.
I have one more thing to say to help sum it all up Elvis Presley King Of Music. #1 selling solo artist in history. 1 billoin records worldwide still as famous and popular as ever. Maybe even more 34 years after his untimly death. The only artist to be in rock ,country and gospel hall of fames. oh yeah and lets not forget Graceland most visited home in the us second to the white house. Im sorry but mj don't have a chance in heck Of Ever Beating Elvis In Anything his lime light will die out. unlike Elvis who Said only one king and he didnt mean himself Nuff Said Long Live The King T.C.B
This is a great poster image, I really like it. loved the Spinout add too.. oh and the drinks add that uses the "Viva Elvis" mix of Bossa nova baby ... all really good stuff !
"theoldscudder! you sound very sure of yourself in your comment ; ) ..... i have picked out a few moves MJ made that definatley mirrors Elvis" 50's moves ... check out Billie Jean pal ! ; )
MJ dance moves were influenced more by Bob Fosse & James Brown. Not Elvis. Elvis was the better singer but MJ was a much better dancer than the King. It's not even close.
Once again this Add is from Brazil. Most certain the Ceo from C&A in Brazil is an Elvis Fan! Anyway it just shows how Presley still is, undoubtley, known by all ages in Brazil/South America.
You're both 100% right. My thoughts exactly. By the way, it is obvious that Elvis is a universal icon whose impact is unparalleled.
FM Iv'e Been Saying That For Years MJ Stole His Moves From The True King Of Music As Well As The Black Shoes White Socks And Black Pants And Elvis Never Proclaimed Him Self The King Unlike Jackson Just Some Facts For Elvis Fans
No one can keep their hands off The King. A girls dream come true. Gee looking at Elvis, I wonder where MJ got his moves from? ... anyone???
