Elvis in Advertisements

Elvis and Southern Maid Donuts

Elvis did the only commercial of his life for any product on November 6, 1954, for Southern Maid Donuts. He sang their jingle. "You can get 'em piping hot after four PM, you can get 'em piping hot. Southern Maid Donuts hit the spot, you can get 'em piping hot after four PM". Nothing is known of Elvis's impact on Southern Maid Donut sales.

Any other advertisements by The King?

Actually, this is incorrect, he did not.

Elvis also did a 1956 advertising photo shoot in Memphis, although it apparently did not run.

Some of the pics from this surfaced about 20 years ago in a book called "Elvis World"; does anyone know where we can find the complete set?

Did he not also do an ad campaign for the 1956 Elvis Presley Phonograph? Radio spots and print ads would indicate these were also commercials. This product was manufactured by RCA in conjunction with EPE I believe, but this should qualify as Elvis in Advertisements.
