A Salute to Mr. Spock, Elvis Style

Mr. Spock

By now, you have probably heard that Leonard Nimoy died today at age 83, after battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was best known for playing the role of Spock in the Star Trek television series and movies. Believe it or not, a number of artists and Photoshoppers have connected Elvis with Spock.

 

Spock Elvis - 24 Karat Hits

Somebody did a great job on this fake album cover. The song titles are a Star Trek spin on some of Elvis’ hit songs. Most are pretty lame, but I kind of like “Big Hunk O Dilethium Crystal,” and “Wear My Tricorder Around Your Neck.”

And here is Elvis and Yvonne Craig in It Happened at the World’s Fair. I’ve used this picture three times now in ElvisBlog articles. Guess I really like it.

They got the ears right on this one, but what about the eyebrows?

This looks like a combination Elvis and Spock action figure. How about them bellbottoms?

This is one of the most iconic photos of Elvis. It has inspired dozens of creative variations. We will end our tribute to Leonard Nimoy with this.

Rock on, Spock. Say hello to Elvis for us.
