'Elvis IS Alive?'
- and working as a CNN cameraman
The mystery man, far right, stays in hiding behind the lamp
Why has he not announced who he is on the Elvis conspiracy boards?
Elvis sadly disappointed the hopeful conspiracists by not appearing alive and well at the 30th Anniversary concert. However something as minor as that doesn't stop the Elvis conspiracy rumour-mill.
If you watched the Larry King Live show with Priscilla from Graceland, you too may have noticed a dark figure lurking in the background. The 'Elvis Is Alive' message-boards jumped at the fact that this really was Elvis hiding behind the lamp and watching the programme being filmed! If you look closely you can see that it is a mirror behind Priscilla showing the reflection back into the living-room of the CNN technicians.
However in a timeless "conspiracy moment" (18 minutes into the program) the cameraman ducks down realizing that he is being shown in the mirror - and yes, he has black hair and could slightly be "Elvis-looking" circa 1972! (see images below)
Of course Elvis would now be 72 years-old and would look only a little like himself in 1972.

(Sorry about the timing Priscilla, not a good look)
Unfortunately 'Elvis IS Alive' conspiracists ignore the main point, that after 30 years in hiding it would be hard to believe that Elvis decided to reveal himself by hiding behind a lamp in a room full of CNN technicians!
While it does look more intriguing and impressive in the footage itself, EIN is happy to provide what images we can get to help you decide for yourself.
