    Elvis' Daughter Upset by ‘Viva Viagra’ Theme

    Elvis Presley’s daughter, singer-songwriter Lisa Marie, is outraged to see her dad’s song ‘Viva Las Vegas’ used in a Viagra commercial.

    "I find it revolting. Some songs we have no control over and I know we didn't license that one,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

    I HATE that commercial! Mr FC HATES that commercial! Everyone I have asked HATES that commercial!

    The song is just STUUUPID....the lyrics don't even make sense. And since when do a bunch of men with ED all get together to jam before taking their Viagra and speeding off to their wives? I would THINK that anyone who needed it would want to keep that fact sort of private - NOT be starting a band and writing a SONG about it

    What's the name of the band - The Limp Lolly's?

    My Opinion

    ROFL!!!!!!!!!! Yes, it's a horrendously stupid commercial and no men would ever sing about it, lol. I have to admit, the guys are talented singers, though.

    Who ever thought that commercial up is pretty smart because it really grabs attention. I like it because of the music, the nice looking guys, good singing, and how much fun they're having. I don't blame Lisa Marie for being upset since they're using Elvis tunes and changing the words though.

    Thanks sherri79, great voices, but I do think it is tactless using Elvis's music.

    Thanks (I think!). I hadn't seen this one. I'd buy a CD by this group, but the ad is tacky.

    (It might even beat out the infamous Lisa/Michael kiss!)

    I dislike this commercial and the only thing entertining is the music, not the words tho, I find them very irritating!
    On a side note, the problems with teens taking viagra, commercials like this one would just encourage the use more IMO.

    Yeah it kind of makes Viagra seem like a 'party drug'. (Oh, how I could expand on that one... LOL!)

    I hate the commercial because I love the song and they're just.... abusing it. It's embarrassing.

    I do agree with you on the stupidity, but I find that the more I her it, the more I like the way the band sounds.

    "Limp Lollies" LOL. Aside from that is it a real band. I really should look it up to see if it's a real group or just a made-up thing for the commercial.

    Yes, but you remember it - that's all the advertisers care about.
