I made an impulse buy of a $30 Elvis suit 3 weeks before leaving Australia in Jan 2008 to travel for a year.
It's crap....and now it's coming with me.
I don't sound like Elvis, look like Elvis, or sing like Elvis.
I am Crap Elvis.

St George is cross: Crap Elvis goes to Wembley

With a ticket in hand (well you try finding a pocket in that suit) to see England play a world cup qualifying match at the new Wembley Stadium in London, I chanced my luck at using Harry Potter's platform of choice at Kings Cross station. Got stuck half way, and ended up looking like a bit of a nob. Again.
I'm beginning to think that the Potter series isn't a documentary after all.

Ooooh, can you feel the tension in the air. That's what happens when England go up against one of the powerhouses of world football - Kazakhstan. And what was the hottest topic of debate about the game. Was it "Is captain John Terry going to play?". Was it "Will Beckham be left on the bench?" Errr. No. It was "I can't believe the police are banning people from wearing Borat-style mankinis to the game on the grounds of public decency." These are the issues people. (check out the Sun newspaper's response to the ban here)

Stupidly they left a loophole open in the ban that allowed people to quite openly walk around in a bad Elvis suit.

Little chat with the BBC.

Wozz, Chaz, Kaz, Gazz...and Ez.

Wem-ber-ley! 5-1 (the result, but coincidentally the ratio of Borat to football references at the game)

Stupid kid - never seen a dodgy Elvis sitting on an oversize furniture setting by the Thames before.
