You know what we love? Lots of things. Among things we love: karaoke. Real talk here: singing in the car is one of the few very pure joys there is in life. It’s even better when you have someone riding shotgun alongside you to hit those higher notes that you can’t quite reach. Nissan recently played upon this love of the sing-along by putting TJ Smith, who is apparently a person that is renowned for taking pictures and doing Internet stuff on the Internet, at the wheel of a Sentra as a Lyft driver for a number of unsuspecting strangers.

The result: a bunch of people singing “Mony Mony” in a car with a person who is famous for being on the Internet and having a face that he puts on the Internet and a torso that is often clothed in different tank tops and also gets put on the Internet.

Our favorite part about the video? Feeling extremely old because there are people in the world who have no idea who Billy Idol is and have never heard “Mony Mony” before hearing it in a Nissan commercial starring talking haircut TJ Smith.

Well, you’re half right, LL123ize.

Come to think of it, this commercial would have been much better with Billy Idol. He’s probably not up to that much these days anyway. If only Billy Idol had a YouTube channel, he might be able to make something of himself.
