Well, the video for the Elvis/Lisa Marie duet on “In The Ghetto” dropped and the single hit iTunes, and it’s more maudlin that we could have even dreamed. The song itself is just a semi-awkward imposition of a new, but not awful, vocal by Lisa Marie on top of dad’s original, just as advertised. But the video features gurning close-ups of Lisa’s anguish-wracked, tear-streaked face in “artful” (read: a lot of cockeyed framing) black and white–it’s like the clip for Johnny Cash’s version of “Hurt” if it had been directed by a guy whose resume was made up mostly of insurance company ads and one episode of Alias–and (get this) little babies wriggling around in their cribs with handguns. A grim portent!
