Elvis Week Post #3

Man, look at that swagger…

Now most of you probably know that this was one of Elvis’s many appearances on the Ed Sullivan show.

On one of his next performances, he was filmed only from the waist up.

Some of you know why?

Because of those swiveling hips of his.

To many of his detractors, Elvis was creating the sexual revolution, and because his hip movements were, ah, “suggestive”, he was only filmed waist up. 
But he knew it. He knew why, so in one of the clips, he’s grinning from ear to ear, and you can tell he knows why the girls are screaming.

One could even argue that Elvis brought on censoring for television, something which I think we take for granted now in the 21st century. 

But he did it first, and he did it best.
