They won't do this as it is against their own policy.  You can't make an avi that looks like a celebrity without their permission.

From http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Intellectual_Property

"Please also be aware that celebrities have a "right of publicity", which means that they have a right to control commercial uses of their name, image, likeness, and other aspects of their identity. Although you may be a fan, you risk infringing celebrity rights if you use a celebrity name or likeness in connection with in-world objects you trade, and you don't have the celebrity's permission."

You can do a "tribute" or charactature that reminds you of X. It's almost impossible to get one that looks like a person unless you're good with photoshop or Daz and can import the look, which has been done from time to time. I remember a promotional thing done by John Candy. The avi he used looked like him.

Yes he did, but remember SL has been around for 11 years now. It was a long time ago. As for Elvis, there are a lot of avis running around that used Elvis's birthday for age verification....snickers.

If what I remember from grade school is correct, 20 > 11.
