Elton John & the King's Court



I am a huge Elton fan - so when His Royal Highness King Queen Elton John (all bow in reverence) starred with American idol winner Melanie Amarro in a Superbowl ad this year, I quite obviously had a moment.  I have listed the main reasons this commercial is brilliant below:

- The Spice World-era golden platform heels ---->
- The "Pepsi for ALL" populist zinger
- The humorous jab at POP star deification 
- The inclusion of a gay icon on a testosterone-packed football event (Note: my sports-loving boyfriend said he would have preferred an Elton John halftime performance!)
- Like Madonna, Sir Elton reminds us that he is always relevant.  The end.

Unapologetically,


Minna
