To mark the occasion, I did a little digging to see what type of connection Mr. Presley might have had with pizza.
There's talk that, during his decline, a good portion of his weight came from pepperoni pizzas—in addition to the fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches he's was famously fond of. But from what I could tell, that's all hearsay. There's no way to know if Elvis truly was fond of spicy pepperoni pies.
After the jump, Elvis retrofitted into a Pizza Hut commercial.
While the Elvis Pizza seems to approach Mr. Presley with love and admiration, I can't say the same about the followinga disgraceful use of the King's posthumous image pasted into a Pizza Hut commercial.
Then again, it was probably done with the blessing of his estate, which should truly be ashamed for allowing it.
