You Can Bid on Elvis Presley's Dirty Underwear For Thousands
A pair of poo-stained underwear worn by Elvis Presley under his white jumpsuit (and not washed afterward) is expected to fetch $16,000 at an auction in England next month.
Omega Auctions' website, which displays the item, put the estimate between $11,000 and $14,000 as of Monday afternoon.
As for their condition, let's just say the fuller-cut jockey-style briefs look as if the King did more shaking on stage than in the bathroom. There appears to be other tell-tale signs of potty neglect as well. He wore the undies during a concert in 1977.
The BBC wrote that the underwear wasn't supposed to show any lines beneath his iconic white jumpsuit. The undies are framed for suitable display.
I'm very curious to know what kind of person will pay $16,000 for these.
