    Was it banned because the battery company had not got clearance from EPE to use Elvis's likeness? Laws are laws and it they did not get proper permission from EPE then it should be pulled. Otherwise everyone and their brother would be hawking their product with Elvis somehow attached.

    You know now that I think about it, wasn't that commercial run here in the US maybe 5 years back? If thats the case I'm pretty sure it was not banned- it just ran its course.

    Yes, that's true.
    They didn't ask for a permission from EPE and still ran the commercial.
    I don't like what EPE does much, but this time they had the rights to ban it.

    I like the commercial though

    I have the same sentiment about it, Diane. If I could have picked one to stay, and one to go, this one would have stayed, and the Viagra one would have been axed. At first I thought, "Oh, oh, where we going with this?"....but by the end I was smiling as it shows the world about ELVIS' staying power in popularity.

    Something about trademarks, I'm sure.
    But it's still a fun commercial, and who of us wouldn't have the same reaction???

    Um...the guy in the Aloha suit was an impersonator...the very quick shot of Elvis in that commercial comes from the rehearsal show for Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii on January 12, 1973.

    Just found this on EIN. I'm sure it's beenn posted before, but I couldn't find it. My favorite commercial, besides the battery one is the Nike one. Even though Elvis isn't in it. It is IMO, a great use of song!

    Also loved this one: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=4dsKvWwh-bs


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Great commercial that doesn't do anything to harm Elvis' image. I image EPE wanted a bucketload of cash to usxe his image
