Elvis Attends Trial

Those of you who thought that the "King" was dead, are much mistaken; he is alive and well, and attending the Michael Jackson trial.

Elvis, or to give him his more usual name, Matthew Tuttle dressed as Elvis and stood outside of the courthouse last week holding a sign reading "Jailhouse Rock Michael".

On Wednesday he was lucky enough to win the lottery of who could be allowed to sit inside the courtroom.

Seemingly Tuttle went to the trial to impress his grandchildren, and because Jackson was briefly married to Elvis' only child, Lisa Marie Presley.

Tuttle works in Las Vegas, as an "Elvis tribute artist."

He is down to earth in his views of the trial, quote:

"It's like a media circus...There's definitely a party atmosphere, like Mardi Gras. And there's a bunch of religious wackos, too. It's like a mecca, a pilgrimage, for all of his fans."

Seemingly other tribute artists gather outside the courthouse, to do the moon walk and Jackson's signature crotch grab.

Tuttle didn't wear his costume when he went inside the court, as that is not allowed. His observations about Jackson are telling:

"He was like a little kid eating candy, stretching. He couldn't sit still...He's very shy in person. I thought he'd be more charismatic, but he's like a shy little girl."

Tuttle was a criminal defence attorney, but gave it all up to play tribute to Elvis.
