Elvis Christmas Creep.

(click ad for closer look)
It's the "first-ever" Elvis illuminated porcelain Christmas tree. It's a limited edition presentation, restricted to "95 firing days." It costs $119.94, but it rotates and plays Blue Christmas. Scanned from the back of the latest True Story magazine which includes the pieces, "My brother is playing matchmaker from beyond the grave!" and "In love with the plumber." previous Christmas Creep: Radio City Music Hall says X-mas started August 20th at 11am; the hot September day Toys R Us almost got firebombed; and the day the Pope stole Christmas.

though that's just about the tackiest thing i've ever seen, there are people whose response to that will be, "i MUST have it. where's my credit card?" gotta love it.

I've always admired those copywriters for the Franklin Mint. Must be hard to type a sentence when you're oscillating between laughing your ass off and sobbing uncontrollably.

Sorry, but I'm either quoting copy from the ad, or IDing stories from the magazine.

Woulda been nice to have each level of tree branches showing the King’s stages of life, topped of with his ascension to heaven via the TCB ‘star.’ But then I realized the later in life Fat Elvis™ would’ve toppled the tree. So yeah, maybe on the bottom closer to hell would be better.
