* In the music video to Music/{{Coldplay}}'s "Chrismas lights", the band is performing the song life at the riverbank of the Thames, with a neon sign saying "Credo Elvem Etiam Vivere", which is Latin for "I believe Elvis yet lives", at the top of the stage.

* This situation actually happened for the American folk rocker, Sixto Rodriguez. He recorded two albums in the [[UselfulNotes/TheSeventies early 1970s]] that got some praise but practically didn't sell domestically, although they did enough briefly in Australia and New Zealand to tour a bit there. However in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica, those albums sold spectacularly and he was hailed as an equal of Creator/BobDylan. Unfortunately, given the country's international isolation because of its tyrannical [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra Apartheid]] policies, knowledge of this interest was not known outside of it. Eventually, rumors arose in South Africa that Rodriguez had died on stage in a suicide and his mystique grew even more there. Eventually, some fans tried to find out the circumstances of his death, and after considerable digging, eventually contacted Rodriguez's former manager and were stunned to learn that he was alive and well and living in UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}. Eventually, they made contact with Rodriguez and invited him to perform in their country. With some reluctance, Rodriguez made the trip and was flabbergasted to be welcomed as a big star with concerts holding 5000+ fans at a time. As he cheerfully quipped to his first audience making his supposedly lost artistic dreams come true after decades, "Thanks for keeping me alive!" These events are covered in the Academy Award winning documentary, ''Film/SearchingForSugarMan''.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' has Cornfed dealing with a massive surge of business [[BlatantLies coincidentally occurring during a period of time when Duckman is absent from the detective agency]]. He has apparently taken a few spare moments to track down Elvis, whom he tells to go on home, as he can't stay hidden forever. Amusingly, Elvis reappears in a few crowd scenes in episodes set after this one.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': Once the Ghostbusters become a media sensation, Ray Stanz is seen on a talk show where the host asks him "How is Elvis, and have you seen him lately?". Ray is amused, but sadly, we never hear his answer.

* A throwaway gag in the ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' convention book ''Progenitors'' explains that a common rite of passage among [[MadScientist Progenitor]] students is to [[TheCloningBlues replicate]] a famous figure from history. Of course, the most popular choice is invariably Elvis - meaning that Elvis doesn't just live: he lives and dies over and over and ''over'' again every year.

* Elvis turns 80 in January 2015, which should be noted is more than the life expectancy of an American male born in 1935.
