New Twist on Elvis

We’re aware there are plenty of people who are into the whole pain/pleasure thing, but instead of going out and buying bondage gear, from now on they can just go to YouTube and watch this supremely horrible clip from the Elvis movie “Easy Come, Easy Go,” It’s of the King trying – and failing – to do yoga.

You can watch it or just have someone step on your palm in with a stiletto. Same difference.

But it had one redeeming factor: I knew there was a reason I loved Elvis. He can’t do yoga either. I’m as big of a klutz on the mat as he is in this video….maybe the two of us should have removed our pointy black boots and Catwoman outfits before trying the lotus, but whatever. I’ve accepted that there are some people who want inner peace and some people, like me, who just prefer inner conflict.

Elvis is the star of this show, poor thing, but not everyone might recognize the yoga teacher – that’s Elsa Lanchester the marvelous British actress who played the Bride of Frankenstein in 1935. I bet she wishes they hadn’t asked her to talk in this flick, either.

Thanks to Sally for sending us this clip. The Elvis Pic came from Elvis and the Martial Arts on Bride of Frankenstein picture came from the SUPER FUN blog out of Toronto, Sue Darroch and Matthew Didier’s Paranormal Blog, which you can, and shoudl, check out at
