Fame

There have been several famous electricians throughout history. George Harrison (former Beatle), Lech Walesa (President of Poland), and Elvis Presley were all electricians or electrician's assistants at one point in their lives. However, none of these people were famous for their actual work as electricians. "All Shook Up" was not in reference to the King having been startled by an electrical shock.

You may not be famous, but if you work hard to establish your own company, people around town will turn to you when their power goes out. And when that happens during the ninth inning of the seventh game of the World Series, trust us—they're going to want to know your name.
