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...

If it's not Elvis then why mention it on this site? Wonder if it's on MarkJamesNews?

they didn't use the original version because of the credibility. Elvis never would drive an peugeot.

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 !!
