Didn’t see this one in The King’s Speech.

Rare footage has emerged showing a jumpsuit-clad Elvis Presley in 1972 riding in the back of a limo on the way to a performance. When the dude sitting next to The King asks him whether he saw the NASA rocket launch at 12:30, Presley casually says he missed it because “I was buried in a beaver.” Apparently in the early ’70s it was common for cameras to roll without sound, as Elvis thinks he’s in the clear.

In our modern culture, which brings back everything, if this doesn’t become an everyday catchphrase by the end of the week we’re all doing the Internet very, very wrong.

UPDATE: Changed “Shuttle” to “rocket”
