The Elvis Presley song "Suspicious Minds" (not Elvis singing) is used in new UK TV ad for French car manufacturer Peugeot new 207 verve model.
This info is taken from the Brand Republic website:

The integrated campaign, entitled 'DriveSexy', will focus on the French manufacturer's new 207 and 308 Verve Special Edition models.The TV, print and digital activity, by incumbent ad agency Euro RSCG, launches on 2 February, and aims to push Peugeot as positive, flirtatious anThe 207 TV ad hints at an illicit affair between a couple singing along to the Elvis Presley track 'Suspicious Minds', while the 308 execution shows a customer and salesman engage in flirtatious banter. Both ads end with a set of colourful lips mouthing 'Peugeot'.
Not Elvis - the guitar is the giveaway.
The guitar the giveaway? How about someone who doesn't even remotely sound like Elvis!
To my ears it sounds like it is actually Elvis singing on the radio with the driver singing along with him. It is too short to confirm though.
EJF, may I suggest you hurry down to your doctor for a hearing teat or maybe given the cold weather you're wearing ear muffs...
okay, I'll never buy a Peugeot..
If it's not Elvis then why mention it on this site? Wonder if it's on MarkJamesNews?
why didn't they just use the real version?
they didn't use the original version because of the credibility. Elvis never would drive an peugeot.
I didnt know they still made Peugeots!
The song "Stranger in the Crowd" which first appeared in the movie /Soundtrack "Elvis-Thats the way it is" is currently being featured in a Coca-Cola TV commerical !! (played during "Super Bowl Sunday-February 1st, 2009) Unfortunately, they didn't use "Elvis vocal- version". But it was nice to hear a "rare Elvis song" used in a TV commerical !!
