Somehow, it totally slipped our attention that yesterday was the thirtieth anniversary of Elvis’ death. We enjoy a little Elvis every now and then (we’ve been known to bust out “Suspicious Minds” at karaoke) and we’re very appreciative of his contributions to the culinary canon, most especially the peanut butter and banana sandwich, which, truly, is one of the world’s more perfect high fat foods. In belated tribute to the King, therefore, we present a clip from Elvis Stories, Ben Stiller’s 1989 short film that more or less directly led to him being offered the chance to do the exceedingly awesome Ben Stiller Show. Aside from being quite funny, this clip also answers the very important question “Has Jeremy Piven been playing a wheeler-dealer for his entire career?” Yes. Yes, he has.
