Elvis Elway?

A new commercial for Arena Football stars Jon Bon Jovi and NFL Hall of Famer John Elway.
To promote a season scheduled to conclude with a championship game in Las Vegas, the wacky premise of a new commercial is football players trashing a casino. The punch line of this televised ad? To pay for damages to the premises, one of the instigators must go to work as an Elvis Presley impersonator.

"They didn't have to ask twice to get me to put on the Elvis costume," Elway admitted to me not long ago, not long after the Hall of Fame quarterback completed his first acting gig dressed as an aging King from the Viva Las Vegas era.

"Why not?" Elway explained. "I don't mind making fun of myself."
