Elvis and his color TV

Lady: 'I don't get paid enough for this crap.'
Elvis: 'Man, I am so lit right now...'

I learned recently from another poster here that the CTC-5 had spent decades in the attic at Graceland. However, it was still a current model when Elvis purchased Graceland and it could conceivably have been RCA's house warming gift. I wonder if anybody would know for sure.

at least we know it's safe there, but it's gonna go to gas before anyone but a cleaning person ever touches it again

I remember that he shot a set while watching the news.No fake news then.
Maybe it was from a movie.
