Elvis Presley famously “left the building” for the final time on August 16th, 1977 but it seems like nobody told one Paddy Power customer in Kent in the UK. The Elvis enthusiast is so certain that the ‘King’ will make his return in 2017, alive and well, that he has placed a £350 bet on it. Paddy Power are well known for their unorthodox marketing campaigns and outlandish humour but I don’t think even they could have made this one up!

The Return of The King of Rock’N Roll

Over a 48-hour period, the unnamed Paddy Power customer placed a series of bets over the telephone and online amounting to £325. The punter placed £25 on Elvis’ return at 2000/1 and a further £300 at 1000/1. If the King of Rock N Roll does indeed return in 2017 the hopeful punter will stand to collect £350,000. As with everything, Paddy Power are seeing the funny side. A spokesperson for the company delivered some excellent Presley puns: “I’m All Shook Up at this punter’s bets, which seem impossible – but clearly he has a suspicious mind. “I think he might be barking up the wrong tree or, then again, he might be nothing but a hound dog.” However, if the bet does come off it’ll Paddy Power who’ll be taking a trip to the Heartbreak Hotel and with such a confident customer we’ll just have to wait and see!
