London, Sept 5 (ANI): Elvis Presley may have been dead for 30 years, but the King of Rock n Roll has shook up a man so much that he has spent nine months touring the world dressed as the legendary popstar.

Donning Presley’’s trademark white jumpsuit, wig and shades, Matt Hale has attracted crowds at the worlds major tourist spots.

“I thought this would honour the King. It seems to have worked as I”ve attracted loads of attention, the Mirror quoted him, as sating.

This 38-year-old radio producer has not only partied at Rio carnival, but posed next to the giant head statues on Easter Island and also trekked to the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru.

In fact, he went on to participate in an Elvis festival in Australia, but stood last in both the lookalike and soundalike contests.

Residing in Welwyn Garden City, Herts, Matt posed at the Statue of Liberty, Elvis’’s spiritual home of Las Vegas, the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, and the magnificent Grand Canyon.

However, not all was hunky dory on his world tour, for he got thrown out of Evita’’s cemetery in Argentina and banned from the Louvre in Paris for being inappropriately dressed.

He also claimed to be pick-pocketed once. (ANI)
