Robbie Williams Does Elvis

Robbie Williams turned Blackpool (UK) into Vegas for his Elvis themed video for the song "Advertising Space". He brought traffic to a stop by strolling down Blackpool's Golden Mile dressed as Elvis. Thousands of fans turned out to see the superstar singer become the King as he filmed his new video. And while Elvis had the lights of Las Vegas, Robbie had to make the most of Blackpool's Illuminations. The screaming crowds also laid siege to venues where the 31-year-old was filming. A delighted Robbie said: "It's amazing the amount of people who have come down to say hello. It's made my night. I haven't seen anything like this since my days with Take That. I feel loved." Robbie Williams is a big Elvis fan, a few years back he made his own comeback special loosely based on Elvis' comeback show. Lyrics "Advertising space" There's no earthly way of knowing What was in your heart When it stopped going The whole world shook A storm was blowing through you Waiting for God to stop this And up to your neck in darkness Everyone around you was corrupted Saying somethin' There's no dignity in death To sell the world your last breath They're still fighting over Everything you left over I saw you standing at the gates When Marlon Brando passed away You had that look upon your face Advertising space And No one learned from your mistakes We let our profit s go to waste All that's left in any case Is Advertising space Through your eyes The world was burning Please be gentle I'm still learning You seemed to say As you kept turning up They poisoned you with compromise At what point did you realise Everybody loves your lies But you ahahh Special agent for the man Through watergate and vietnam No one really gave a damn Did you think the CIA did I saw you standing at the gates When Marlon Brando passed away You had that look upon your face Advertising space And No one learned from your mistake We let our profits go to waste All that's left in any case Is Advertising space ooooohh I saw you standing at the gates When Marlon Brando passed away You had that look upon your face Advertising space No one learned from your mistakes We let our profits go to waste All that's left in any case Is Advertising space I've seen your daughter Man shes cute I was scared but I wanted to Boy she looks a lot like you

What with Kate Bush and now Robbie, do I detect that the King is the in thing to write songs about? Great lyrics Robbie, nice one.
