The song? - Definetely my favourite, so: yay! The commercial? - boring, too long, so: boo! The idea? - it's good to promote Elvis, but this whole spot didn't get me interested -------- and one personal note: this is THE SONG that made me an Elvis fan in 1992, being 6 y.o. - a lot of great memories...

I agree with Pietro S. The commercial is quite long. So I think the 'background music' may not stand out as such. And that is a pity as it is a wonderful song by the King! Interesting though that they have chosenan Elvis song. It shows that the King is quite in vogue as this is not the only commercial. By the way, whether or not one likes Samsung is not the issue here.

Coca Cola will also be using Elvis in their 'I Kissed Coke' campaigns celebrating 100 years of Coke. A B&W fifties image, with Elvis wearing a colourised red striped jacket, and holding a bottle of coke under the headline 'I Kissed Elvis'.

I think that these commercials have more chance of bringing on new Elvis fans than the endless plethora of re-releases, even if the ad is not entirely satisfactory.

My favorite Elvis ad is where they show him on stage at the Aloha concert, and his bandmates are Keith Moon, Marvin Gaye, and some other greats. Imagine, Keith Moon on the drums for Elvis. That would have been wild!
