Bring out your dead

Quick - when I say "Tennessee", what do you think of? Why Dolly Parton and Elvis of course. I love it when dead people are used to sell stuff. And you can't go wrong with the "king"! In a broadcast television first, Tennessee music superstars Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley meet on screen to promote their home state. The newest commercial from the State of Tennessee's Department of Tourist Development features Dolly Parton riding alongside Elvis in a digital scene recreation from the 1967 classic Elvis film, Clambake.

You can view the spot on the official Elvis Website here.
