Far from the bluffs of Memphis, a reincarnated, 16-year-old Elvis Presley may be speaking French and residing in Quebec. Recently, David Thibault walked into radio station CKOI and shocked the morning show staff by singing a version of “Blue Christmas” that is uncannily like the King’s.

But he’s been practicing his uncanny impression for a while, triumphing in Elvis impersonator contests in his native Canada. He even has a Facebook page, David Thibault Elvis, which has garnered more than 3,700 likes.
