Elvis Presley acted in a commercial in exchange for a doughnut

Southern Maid Donuts have been one of America's favourite donut franchises since 1937.

Today the brand has grown substantially and there are nearly 100 stores across the whole country.

The most interesting part about the franchise's history is that Elvis Presley took part in his only TV commercial the Southern Maid Donuts brand.

And he did it in exchange for one delicious custom-made donut just for him, reports Things You Didn't Know.

The world’s most influential rock idol who ever lived was famous not only for his amazing music but, apparently, for his sweet love for doughnuts as well.

Mr. Presley was obviously one of the best return customers of the Shreverport store for donuts during his tours to the Louisiana Hayride.
