Elvis Presley's tooth for sale

July 14, 2004 04:23 IST

Humankind has come a long way from the time it believed in a tooth for a tooth. Now it could cost you over two million for the same thing -- if it had once been extracted from the mouth of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley.

The sale of the celebrity tooth has been organised by Jesse Briggs, co-creator of Style Star International, a reality show. And the offers have been pouring in.

It was not clear what kind of tooth was being auctioned but Briggs says that the spirit of the king of rock and roll would, in some way, be a sponsor of the show.

He hoped the sale would help cut down on production costs.

Style Star International focuses on the work of a dozen rising hair designers, whose work will be gauged by a team of celebrity judges.

Among other things, the winner gets a new beauty salon, a new car and a signed contract with a talent agency, besides oodles of publicity.
