Elvis Pinky Has Left The Building!
If you’ve ever attended our international conferences in February each year you’ll no doubt treasure your special edition Pinky! We’ve been producing them for about 10 years now and they’re always a closely guarded secret until you show up at the event and are given one in your tote bag. For 2012 our marketing team were very proud of what they had planned. Pinky as Elvis in one of his classic poses. Dressed in a silver one piece outfit with the wide collar, the dipping hair quiff and holding the mic up high - Pinky looks absolutely spectacular!
You’re probably wondering why I’m giving the game away on one of our most closely guarded secrets. Well, we had a mock-up made out of clay and it was shown to the folks who manage Elvis’ estate - just to be sure they were OK with everything. Oh-oh!
Unfortunately you’re never going to get to see it. I can’t even post a picture here (unless I’m prepared to run the gauntlet of the powers-that-be and their legal team at Graceland). Here’s what Priscilla Presley had to say about or planned special edition Pinky for 2012:
“We are very protective of Elvis’ image, and we would never allow him to be portrayed as an elephant, much less a pink one. While we are appreciative of the humor in your product, elephants are often associated with obesity, and pink elephants often associated with drinking, neither of which are images we would like associated with Elvis. I hope you understand our position.”
Ah well, back to the drawing board. Ideas, anyone?
What was wrong with Megadeath? Or Bjork?
Actually I vote Rolling Stones
