Perhaps you've seen Nissan's latest commercial, promoting the Sentra. It's a fairly simple little spot, showing the compact's driver blaring Billy Idol's Mony Mony, singing along and encouraging other motorists to join in.

We'd have been fine had it been left at that. It's a simple commercial that shows the car with a catchy tune and smiling people. Nissan couldn't leave well enough alone, though, and has come back with this. Starring TJ Smith – the driver from the original ad and an apparent YouTube celebrity famous for the kind of thing shown in the original commercial – the new ad expands on the old, with more people, and more Mony Mony. This time round, Smith is serving as a driver for the Lyft service, who just happens to break into song with his fares in the car.

Scroll down for the full video. If you've no idea what we're talking about, we've also included the original commercial.

        Agreed. Some people are just miserable. Just smile, or at least fake smile!

      The Sentra is a decent and under rated car. Most people in this segment are looking mostly for practicality not speed.

        Exactly why the car is such a fail if you buy one.
