This morning we met with Toronto’s Silver Elvis. An exciting new project could be in the works and we hope to have more details on that to share with you soon.
We collaborated with ‘Silver E’ a few times last year and always had a good time shooting and hanging out with him. Take for instance, the afternoon after the above photo was taken. We were leaving the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place – with Silver E still in full costume – while across the street at the newly renovated Automotive Building Toronto’s better-heeled were arriving for a $10,000 a plate hospital charity dinner, an event for which the organizers had ‘rented’ what appeared to be two large Indian elephants to great the gala-goers.
So as they arrived through the Princes’ Gates in their very fancy cars, attendees were met not only with two mammoth Pachyderms wearing red satin hats, but also with a mirror-suited man painted entirely silver (who quite resembled Elvis) happily on his way back to his minivan.
We kinda wished we still had at least one of our cameras out to capture some of the wild expressions that we saw behind the windows of those very fancy cars.
Some days our job is too fun.
