Does anyone know anything about the various middle-aged to elderly Elvis people who are regularly seen dancing to any and all types of music on the Southbank? Surreal and quite great. Found this video via a Google search.

No idea who they are but they've been doing it for at least 5 years I would say. Once during a Thames river festival my employer had allowed DJ's to play on our balcony that is next to but raised above the river walk, and the Elvis' (Elvii?) had climbed up on the balcony and were dancing up high above the crowds. (I might have a photo of that somewhere). I've also seen them hanging out in a bar in Camden.
