Kate Bush Pokes Fun At Elvis Myth In New Video

Pop recluse KATE BUSH pokes fun at the 'ELVIS PRESLEY is alive myth' in the video for her comeback single KING OF THE MOUNTAIN by dancing with The King's white jumpsuit.

The famous outfit jumps off a coathanger to jig with the WUTHERING HEIGHTS hitmaker in the promo, as fantastic newspaper headlines about Presley, including 'I Had Elvis' Alien Baby' and 'Sighting of Elvis in Yeti Colony' float onto the screen.

In the song, Bush sings, 'Elvis, are you hiding somewhere, looking like a happy man.'

She also references movie mogul ORSON WELLES in the tune, singing about the mythical sledge ROSEBUD from Welles' classic CITIZEN KANE.

The sledge, with Rosebud written on it, appears in the last frame of the video.
