Canada is largely known by its larger neighbor to the south for brutal winters, ice hockey, and bizarre usage of the English language. But it turns out cool commercials involving radio control models of hot Nissans is also a Canuck specialty.

This video shows off the new Sentra SE-R--an otherwise not particularly exciting vehicle--drifting around neighborhood streets, filmed from another R/C camera car and an R/C helicopter, and generally up to some pretty cool hijinks. It's one of the most creative uses of R/C cars in a real-car commercial we've seen, and it's definitely worth a minute and 17 seconds of your day.

The current Sentra SE-R was introduced in 2008  for the U.S., and continues on this year with a Spec V variant as well, offering numerous appearance and infotainment upgrades. You can read the full take on the 2010 Nissan Sentra, including the SE-R and SE-R Spec V at TheCarConnection.
