    Birth name was Andreas van Kujik
    Elvis Presley’s longtime manager
    He really wasn't a colonel and his name wasn't Parker.
    He snuck into the US illegally from The Netherlands.
    Before meeting Elvis, he was a circus carnie who ran a dancing chicken act.
    Many feel he was a dictatorial manager who screwed Elvis over.
    He charged Elvis a whopping 50% management fee (most take 10%).
    He encouraged Elvis to make cheesy musical flicks like 'Viva Las Vegas.'
    He smoked cigars and weighed over 300 pounds.
    He dressed like Colonel Sanders.
    He was a marketing guru.
    He kept Elvis' name alive while the singer served in the army.
    'Green Acres' actor Pat Buttram based his Mr. Haney character on him.
