Wal Mart - They've got EVERYTHING!

So my son and I are shopping for a toy for my little niece and we happen upon this:

It is WowWee, the king of robotoys, who have brought Elvis back to life utilizing their WowWee Alive Animatronics tecnique. Mini motors and pullies are mounted under the latex rubber skin to give full facial expressions with eyebrows, lips, mouth and eyes moving to give the most authentic re-creation ever of this legendary artist. The King is Dead! Long Live Elvis, the king of rock’n'roll!

The Elvis Wowee Amimatronic is just too weird. Built by the Robosapien people it features the King singing and talking with strange head, lip and eye movements. If your idea of a cozy night in, is gazing adoringly at a twitchy bust of your pop idol mouthing inanities, then this is for you. The rest of us will probably just pop a CD in the tray and grab a sandwich. Watch the frightening video.

I didn't write the above review but frankly, I don't think I could've said it any better. Yes, for just $300 you too, can have a creepy, kitschy, rubber recreation of 'The King' and if you're able to sleep through the night with a thing like that in your house?... Well, you're a stronger person than I.

No freaking way.
I love me some Elvis, but I don't want that scary thing anywhere near me.
God help me if the price ever drops below $50, because everyone I know will be fighting to buy me one, thinking that I'll love it.
Not so much.
