109 Elvis Presleys

4 Dec 2006

Passengers at London's Gatwick airport were treated to a bit of surrealism as they waited for their flights.

More than 100 Elvis Presley's were gathered at the hub waiting to board a flight to Las Vegas, reports the Sun.

The congregation was preparing to complete a sponsored walk onboard the flight in a bid to raise money for charity.

In total, 109 Elvises took part in the walk, which involved walking up and down the isle of a 747 in a relay format.

The team, which was made up entirely of employees from an office design company, managed to raise £50,000 and even found time to entertain other passengers while still on the ground.

Those waiting for their flights were greeted to renditions of Suspicious Minds and other Elvis classics.
