So Close Yet So Far

August 25, 2019 | Other

Elvis' So Close, Yet So Far From Paradise is used in a Walkers commercial.

Hearing this on TV first time, my reaction was what was that, did I hear right, It's Elvis with a track from the much denigrated film Harum Scarum which 99% people who profess to like Elvis will never have heard. If an Elvis track was being chosen to appear in an advert and this was a horse race it would have been at a price of at least 500-1.

It's a great add but the editing of the song doesn't do Elvis justice. Despite being from a poor film, So close is a powerful song and I'm not ashamed to have the general public hear it.

I like Elvis. I've heard the tune many times. I very much like the song. The commercial is okay, Nice to hear a song used that isn't one of the same old, worn out suspects.
