Elvis Lights Up Vegas Once Again

Elvis may have “left the building” long ago, but you can still
buy a sign to show he was there. (“Elvis has left the building!”
was frequently said by an announcer when Elvis left after a performance. It
became a well known expression.) At least, that’s idea of a sign in the
form of a night light from Bogar Enterprises, which features replica signs commemorating
Elvis’s life in Las Vegas. The nostalgic signs licensed by Elvis Presley
Enterprises, from the novelty sign company, Bogar Enterprises, pay tribute to
the undisputed “King of Rock and Roll.”

The ELVIS ’68 Comeback Special Sign is a scale replica of the enormous backdrop
when Elvis performed his NBC television special, known as “The ’68 Comeback
Special.” The special which aired on December 3, 1968, was one of highest
rated and most viewed television hits of the year. According to Bogar, the ELVIS
’68 Comeback Special Sign features red Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that look
just like the red lights of the backdrop sign used on stage in 1968. Bogar’s
replica adds a 43-second sound chip playing another one of Elvis’s most recognized
tunes, “Don’t Be Cruel.”

Bogar’s other new sign features a modern interpretation of a Vegas icon using
the famous red arrow. The sign, created by www.lasvegas.com, lights up, flashes,
and points the way to Vegas. It has white LEDs around the border and yellow
LEDs in the word “VEGAS.” The sign’s red arrow is based on the VEGAS.com
logo, which has become one of the most recognized symbols representing Las Vegas.

“Our original sign was very successful with tourists and locals — they
loved it. We wanted to build on the interest in the souvenirs and introduce
new products that are representative of Las Vegas,” said Bob McMonigle,
Owner and President of Bogar Enterprises, LLC. McMonigle continued, “No
similar products exist and we are confident the new products will become just
as popular as our original sign.”

The ELVIS ’68 Comeback Special Sign and The Welcome Viva Las Vegas Sign have
a suggested retail price of $49.95. The Welcome to Las Vegas Sign has a suggested
retail price of $39.95. The “VEGAS” Sign has a suggested retail
price of $29.95 and the Welcome Night Light has a suggested retail price of
$9.95. These products can be purchased in casino gift stores, hotel gift stores,
specialty stores and souvenir shops throughout Las Vegas. All products are available
for purchase now, with the exception of the ELVIS ’68 Comeback Special Sign,
which will arrive in stores later this year. With the low prices of the sign/night
light souvenirs, Elvis will light up “the building” for years to
come. Bogar
