Elvis Presley Crypt Auction Gets Shut Down

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 21:  An original photograph of Elvis Presley autographed and inscribed to songwriter and compose Irving Berlin on auction at Gotta Have It! store on March 21, 2012 in New York City.  (Photo by Michael Loccisano/Getty Images)

Tough news for everyone who spent the last month running numbers and saving up to throw down a bid on that Memphis crypt Elvis Presley was interred at for two months after his death: The auction is OFF. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "fans worldwide demanded that it be kept as a shrine to his memory." You still have the Elvis hologram to look forward to/be troubled by, though.
