The Flying Elvi

This is no one-shot deal. The Flying Elvi were the birth child of Andy Bergman, WriterDirector of the movie “Honeymoon in Vegas“. He solicited the help of a professional skydiving team from Las Vegas, NV for his movie. There was no trick photography used when the ten men had to jump from 12,000 feet and land in a small parking lot lined with thousands of people.

THE FLYING ELVI HAVE PERFORMED AT MORE THAN 1,000 EVENTS IN 42 STATES. Hey, that sounds a lot like what happened in Indianapolis when the Hoosier Lottery was kicking off the scratch-off game, Instant Keno. Ten men dressed as Elvis Presley jumped from an airplane and landed on Pan Am Plaza in downtown Indianapolis. Thousands of people flocked to the Plaza and watched the spectacle with amazement. Each person marveled at how easy the men made the jump, and more importantly the landing. After landing safely, the Elvi switched costumes, grabbed their guitars and jumped on stage to perform. The media coverage was fantastic. WISH-TV channel 8 newsman Ray Rice said “it was a great gimmick and a super show“.
