Extreme Elvis fans can now share the ultimate experience with their idol: death. That's right! If you love the King more than anyone, this month and this month only, you can buy his crypt.

TMZ reports
that Beverly Hills auction house Julien's Auctions will be selling the Memphis, Tennessee tomb where Elvis' body was initially laid to rest to the highest bidder as part of its Sports Legends and Music Icons auction. Located in the Forest Hill Cemetery, the tomb was home to Elvis' body for two months, before he was moved to Graceland.

The winner of the June 23 auction will also get a memorial inscription and a chapel ceremony to be put to use after they pass away.
