There are shots of Roy Stride wandering around town and seeing people with Elvis haircuts and wearing the sorts of clothes he wore. At the end of the video he sees the girl that he is attracted to and the song fades with the words "Elvis has left the building. Thank you and goodnight!", a line made famous by Elvis.
