Singing Elvis in Latin

(Video Link)

Dr. Jukka Ammondt is a professor of literature at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. He’s also an accomplished singer who entertains crowds by singing Elvis songs . . . translated into Latin!

He says that he feels a special connection with Elvis, whose core message can be summarized with the song title “Don’t Be Cruel.” That’s the message that Ammondt wants to spread around the world with his music.

In this video, Ammondt begins by singing “Calling Elvis,” a Dire Straits song—again, in Latin. Then he transitions into Elvis classics: “Don’t Be Cruel” at the 2:20 mark and “It’s Impossible” at the 5:27 mark.
