Elvis Presley! The Six Best Animated GIFs on the King of Rock 'n' Roll's Death Day

Will it ever be the same without Elvis Presley?

Americans have spent three decades trying to accept a world without him. But we just can't let go of the King.

Upwards of 75,000 people are willingly sweating their balls off outside of Presley's Memphis estate, Graceland, to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the his death today. And at last night's annual vigil, obsessive fans and curious observers alike were surprised by a visit from the King's ex-wife and daughter, Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley.

We here at Crossfade, on the other hand, have spent the better part of Elvis's death day trolling to the web for funny Presley-inspired animated GIFs.
