Vanishing Memphis

It was bad enough when we lost the "Superman Dam Fool" graffiti. But now the best part of Memphis' weirdest mural has been painted over in favor of this beige wall.

So how weird was the parking lot mural at the downtown Fogelman YMCA? Well, it included this painting of a little girl extracting something from (or inserting something into) a toddler's bottom. And now it's gone forever.

Thankfully a portion of the mural remains. Here we see Jesus and hippy Jesus doing something behind a bush that has resulted in two people shaking their fists and one man's heart attack.

Neverending Elvis

According to Adweek, "Elvis is back in the building." Sort of. Authentic Brands Group (ABG), which manages Elvis' estate, is teaming with Pulse Evolution and will use 1,500 moving parts to reanimate the King as a hologram. What then? Apparently, ABG intends to "have Elvis shake, rattle, and roll in live shows, commercials, and movies." We guess that means Clambake 2 and Rocky vs. King Creole are just around the corner. Hooray?
