Las Vegas, NV—For the first time in many years, Juan Guerra of Henderson, NV is shelving his Elvis Presley impersonator outfit. Guerra, best known as skydiving Elvis #11 in the movie Honeymoon in Vegas (1992), said the transformation for him was a bittersweet one. Mr. Guerra has been donning the same white rhinestone-speckled suit for the better part of twenty years.
“Fremont Street will miss the old routine,” said Guerra, “but Elvis has left the building.”
As for the decision to change his act to an explorer and famous missing person, Amelia Earhart, Guerra said, “No one personifies Vegas quite like Earhart,” said Guerra. “Now that bitch could gamble!”
Mr. Guerra was reluctant to talk about his short-lived attempt in the 90’s to become an Elvira impersonator.
“Doctors just didn’t have the technology to give me the necessary mammarage,” said Guerra. “They also warned me if a silicone pouch that size ruptured, it could flood surrounding low lying areas.”
