Who needs a velvet Elvis painting when you can have a gold-coated Katy Perry 'Prism' semi traveling across this great nation of ours announcing the singer's new album? Right?

The truck stopped at Graceland, Elvis' estate in Memphis, today (Aug. 6). So fans of The King got a taste of a current pop music queen, as the semi cruised up to the front gates.

Perry herself tweeted about the Graceland stop. Maybe she can copy Elvis' famous '68 Comeback Special leather jumpsuit on the tour in support of 'Prism,' out Oct. 22, since she is ditching her Candyland image? Just a suggestion...
