Long live the king

No-one really leaves the building in a world where content and technology reign supreme
Back in April, we concluded our report on the ‘return’ of rapper Tupac Shakur: ‘And what price seeing a holographic Elvis or Beatles reunion in the future?’ Well, wouldn’t you just know it…?
A company founded by James Cameron – a man who knows a thing or two about creating a nigh-on unbeatable content formula – is set to ensure that ‘the King’ can rule again after signing an agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises to digitally recreate Elvis for a series of live shows and TV appearances, 35 years after he died.
Some fans will doubtless be delighted, others may well be horrified. But how does the news leave you?

Check out some of the ones made by clever online content creators in response to the holographic Coachella performance and subsequent losing of panties by everyone watching at home:
When doesn’t Star Wars work for a chuckle-worthy meme?

And if the Wiggles had only waited a while before replacing Sam, a whole new audience could have opened up to them…
