By 1972, Elvis Presley was knee deep in fat “flying jumpsuit” mode. And, according to this recently unearthed video of him riding in a limo, as he makes his way to a concert he was also knee deep in something else.
When asked by one of his friends if he saw the recent NASA shuttle launch, Presley doesn’t reply that he missed it but we are to infer that because he tells them at the time of the launch, “I was buried in beaver.”
Which makes sense since he was still The goddamn King, even in 1972 when he entered the Keith Hernandez zone by becoming fat and adorned in jumpsuits as an added challenge to see if he could still get laid. Which, obviously, he could. [via brobible]
