Elvis Bread?

What next?

"The 70th anniversary of Elvis Presley's birth is to be commemorated with a limited edition bread featuring his likeness.

Bakers Kingsmill have crafted special bread tins to recreate the famous "Love Me Tender" singer's profile - and the packaging will carry the slogan 'By appointment to the King.'

Kingsmill spokesperson Jo Sykes says, "What better tribute to the great man than to bake him his very own limited edition loaf, for everyone to enjoy."

The company has managed to avoid legal action being taken against them by Elvis Presley Enterprises through their use of look-alikes for their $12.6 million TV commercials which show spoof footage of Presley as a baker."

I wrote to them asking if I might have a copy of some of their printed advertisements and they refused.  They are based in the UK.
