Apparently director Baz Luhrmann thought we all needed a reminder that Elvis Presley - yes, that Elvis Presley - was indeed a white man. In the newest biopic Elvis, which tells the life story of 'The King', there's a scene where Tom Hanks' character, Tom Parker finds out that Elvis is white. Having only heard Elvis on the radio, the greedy talent manager's eyes light up like it's goddamn Christmas morning.

These things tend to have a life of their own once the internet gets a hold of them. So once the clip started making the rounds on Twitter, it was only a matter of time before the memes started rolling in.

I'm here for this Slim Shady reference.

Nobody is safe from the wrath of the 'Elvis is white' meme!

I for one am glad that we have a brand new meme format. It's rare, these days that we get such a perfect blend of chaos, comedy, and commentary on pop culture all in one meme. But if it does nothing else, the new Elvis movie gave us that. And we are eternally grateful.
