Now thats a cool thing, if the colonel had anything to do with it in his life time WIG would mean Why I'm Greedy and he would have elvis' head patented.

So agree with Dixieland and PJ etc. These tacky, tasteless things just give added amunition to those who try to disrespect Elvis. It just is not remotely funny!

c'mon everybody, cheer up. Bold-headed Elvis impersonaters are desperate for such wigs!

Ok EspenK, you win. I did not realise we were going to be so pedantic, but I will concede the point. It still does not escape the problem of the crap EPE sells and endorses though.

Well said Carl. Elvis was being discussed on BBC TV News this morning. The making of the Elvis ad for Radio 2. The positive comments were a joy to hear. The general public have a much better oppinion of Elvis than is recognised by some Elvis fans on message boards. Witchcraft indeed:-)

Anyone can make a wig "Elvis-style", these wigs arent neccesarily licenced from EPE, neither are the other wigs from the artists management.

You make some strong points Carl, but the people who ridicule Dylan and the Beatles are not the same people who are supposed to look out after their interests like EPE. I also think that Elvis sitting on the toilet with Eminem balancing on one of his turds is a particularly disgusting way to remember the King. The performers you mentioned were not in the same class as Elvis, that's why they are forgotten. The same will happen in a few years to come to celebrities like Jessica Simpson.

It shows that Elvis is a part of Americana and American culture. The worst thing that can happen is when they forget you. Nothing is worse than being forgotten. Who remembers Milli Vanilli today? Or MC Hammer? Or the Makarena? Buy MC Hammer had an album that outsold all the Elvis albums. MC got a Diamond RIAA album in 1990. Today Hammer is the biggest joke in history. I don't have to say anything about Milli Vanilli.
My point is that fame is fickle and capricious. But Elvis lives on. He is bigger than ever. Remember also that the Beatles get dismissed as Mop Tops and Dylan is dismissed as a horrible has-been singer. Dylan gets mocked and dissed too. Jay Leno always rips into Bob. But the music fans know better.
I don't think this is a bad thing myself. It means Elvis rules. When they forget about you....Now that is a time to worry and complain. But Elvis is a part of world culture. That he is part of Halloween, granted in a tacky way, just proves to me that Elvis is still a part of everyone's consciousness. He is someone no one can ever forget.
And to me, the whole jumpsuit thing is just a way for people to express their admiration and respect for Elvis in a psychologically repressed way. The bottom line is, Elvis is still a part of our reality, jumpsuit and all. How many people can say that?
Even Eminem's spoof of Elvis, which was tacky, was a subtle reminder that Elvis was the biggest...ever. In his own warped way, Mathers was paying tribute to Elvis.
To belittle and spoof someone requires that you admit the immense role that person has in your life. And this whole wig thing, as outrageous as it seems, is just another indication of just how much Elvis remains a part of Americana and the global community.
This is something that you laugh all the way to the bank with.

Alas, I fear you are right Steve V. The rot set in a long time ago unfortunately. One positive note though, it's the only list that Jessica Simpson is ahead of Elvis Presley.

PJones - Unfort I think it is too late for Elvis to be given the same respect as Dylan or The Beatles. Too much junk has come out over the years to tarnish the legend. I remember being in a mall once in 1978 and there was a window display full of Elvis trash cans. A fat junpsuited Elvis yet! How utterly tacky. From that day on, I knew the respect factor was long gone. The Colonel, the estate, and yes the tacky fans who bought this crap are to blame!

Indeed dixieland rocks:-) I bet they even "find "a new discovered song called How the wig was woven!(can't let loose can't let go:-)

So while the 1977 footage of "Elvis In Concert" is held back to "protect his image" from the public, stupid wigs are released and even get in the charts. It wouldn't be surprising to see a wig collection called "50,000,000 Wig Fans Can't Be Wrong". ....lol. Again, junk like these wigs is ruining Elvis' image worse than releasing the 1977 concert footage ever would.

When will they stop this bull! Oh no let's be positive about it. Now that even his wig has entered the charts,how many do they have to sell to get a Platinum Wig award? jees Stop where you are!

I get frustrated reading articles like this. On the same day we are told about a quality book by Albert Wertheimer, this rubbish appears. I wonder if EPE didn't sell or endorse this tat, Elvis would be treated in the same respect as Dylan or the Beatles. If you go on the official sites shop for example, the first thing you see a picture of a horrible jump suit (for $94!) and a picture of a giant pumpkin advertising these ridiculous costumes for Halloween.
