Music Video of the Day: (619) 239-King by Mojo Nixon and Skip Roper (1989, directed by Bill Fishman)


Yes, that was a real number. It was not, as some people have reported, Mojo Nixon’s private number. Instead, it was a number that was connected to house in San Diego where people could call and leave reports of having sighted Elvis or really anything else they wanted to say to Mojo. According to the comments left for this video on YouTube, Mojo often changed the message on the machine.

It’s been a while since we’ve had any Elvis sightings. I don’t know how many people remember this but when I was a kid, there were people who seriously believed that Elvis had faked his death and was living in Florida. There were even pictures that people claimed to have taken of him. The funny thing is that, in all of these pictures, Elvis still had his sideburns and was usually wearing a white jump suit. Elvis faked his death but wasn’t willing to get a haircut or buy any new clothes.

If Elvis is still alive, he’s 86 years old now.

Enjoy!
