Elvis Featured In New Nevada Tourism Ads

The Nevada Commission on Tourism will launch new national ads this summer that feature Las Vegas entertainment icons "Elvis" and the Blue Man Group enjoying outdoor recreation at Lake Tahoe. The ads will run in midsummer and fall, as the mountain paradise recovers from economic impacts of a devastating wildfire, Lt. Gov. Brian K. Krolicki announced Wednesday. The ads, to run on television and in travel magazines, are the latest in the tourism agency's award-winning "icon" series that portrays Las Vegas show-business figures enjoying popular recreational activities in other parts of the state and reveal Nevada's two different worlds -- neon and nature.

Yea, yea, yea, Elvis (jumpsuit & all) is always associated with Vegas. And that's a good thing. However, I just wish that for once we could see an ad about him in something other than a jumpsuit. It's like people have forgotten he wore real clothes at one time & looked damned terrific in those threads!

I like it. It should be Elvis first, Frank Sinatra, Wayne Newton, etc. (But, not in a jumpsuit). I still would like a copy of this but, I do wish it was a better likeness.
