It's one of his iconic sayings kept alive by thousands of Elvis impersonators. I loved Elvis when I was young and I still do. (We recently went to the funeral of my husband's 94 y/o aunt, and after all the religious songs and the eulogy, the family gave her final send off to one of her favorite Elvis songs. I loved it.)

It's a really common thing for people to say so it doesn't make sense to be here. It's like asking who said, "Hi, how are you?"

I realized it was Elvis pretty quickly, but I also heard Han Solo in my head in Empire Strikes Back when C-3PO walked in on Han kissing Leia and tells Han he's isolated the reverse powerflux cuplink. As Leia slips away Han says "Thank you...thank you very much!" In a sarcastic voice. I put Han Solo as a joke, but then put Elvis...however I can understand why people are upset at the vagueness of that question.

People of my generation probably remember them because of all the publicity surrounding celebrities insuring various parts of their bodies with the company - Jimmy Durante's nose, Betty Grable's legs, Keith Richards' hands, Dolly Parton's...you get the picture. It became the rage for publicists to claim that their clients "notable features" were insured by Lloyds of London.

I owe my awareness of Lloyd's of London to political satirist Tom Lehrer. In his song "We Will All Go Together When We Go" (lauding the wonders of mutual nuclear annihilation), one stanza goes...

We will all go together when we go

All suffused with an incandescent glow

No one will have the endurance

To collect on their insurance

Lloyd's of London will be loaded when they go

Even I said Thank you, thank you very much.

I grew up watching him live on TV and he nearly always said "Thank you very much". I saw at least one performance where he said, "Thank you, thank you very much." You can find it on Youtube. As I stated previously, it was one of his iconic sayings said in his own unique way, now often repeated by Elvis impersonators.

I get that apparently, for many people, it's an iconic Elvis saying, but it's weird. It's like asking "who ate salt" - well, a great many people, at some time or another!

I found the Elvis one too generic. Maybe ask which musician said it. Or who famously always said it. Otherwise, the answer can be almost anyone and everyone.

"In Canada, what holiday happens on the second Monday of October?"

I beleive that the question about Elvis needs a rewrding. At first my mind automatically jumped to Johnny Cash, and yes he did say, "Thank you, thank you very much", which was all the question specifies, heck I've even said that line. It just doesn't give enough specifics to narrow down the answer to one person.
