damn dirty vegas!
Years ago, I somehow came across Dr. Zaius, Live in Concert. It was a comedic detour off of The Wonderful World of Longmire’s quirky parody of that sci-fi classic, Planet of the Apes (the 1968 original, not the remade Marky Mark and the Monkey Bunch version).

It’s a pretty funny visual, crossing the white leisure-suited Zaius with the white jumpsuited Elvis Presley. But it’s just not complete without the accompanying musical clip of Elvis singing “Burning Love”.

Somewhere along the way, that sound file ended up missing from the original page. So feel free to click on the link above to play it, while imagining Zaius swaying to his own groovy beat. I’d set your media player to play the clip on a continuous loop, just like the original presentation. I admit it’s not comparable to the original Elvis-in-Vegas experience, but it’s still good for a headtrip.

That said, I’m not sure that I prefer this over the magnificent Simpsons-ized stage-musical interpretation of simian domination. (”I love you, Dr. Zaius!”, sayeth the late Troy McClure…)
