MEMPHIS has been besieged by rock fans convinced there is new evidence that Elvis is alive.
Thousands of fans ignored social distancing rules by gathering outside his former home-turned-shrine, Gracelands.
Others demanded answers from the White House.
The new wave of speculation seems to be the result of a poster campaign across some states warning about the effects of the coronavirus.
The posters, published by the US Department of Health, warn folk to 'Stay Home, Save Elvis'.
A spokesman for the department said there had been an error in the final word.
In a statement, the spokesman said: "It was supposed to say 'Lives' but was drawn up by a dyslexic copywriter."
However, gun-tooting anti-lockdown campaigners believe the statement is a cover-up, and say that they are now staying at home.
Joe Dork, president of Wyoming Gun Freedom, said: "We ain't stayin' at home for no jackass, liberal, douche-bag scientist but we'll do it for Elvis."
