A Virginia Tech student recently asked Nirvana to record a video shout-out ... and may or may not be under the impression that Kurt Cobain is alive and/or a woman.
Nirvana's former label, Sub Pop, posted the letter they got from the VT student asking them to record this message to university students:
"What's up, Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS [sic] GO HOKIES!"
The student would be happy to link back to Nirvana's Facebook and Twitter accounts, they said, and then added this kicker to further make the case:
"It presents great publicity for them, as well as Virginia Tech loves Nirvana. We'd love to have her in our video." Alongside the Ying Yang Twins, no less.
Nirvana, of course, ceased to exist after the suicide death of Kurt Cobain in 1994 and has not released an album after that year's MTV Unplugged.
Kurt was also male, which the student may not be clear on. No matter.
Amazingly, Sub Pop complied with the request (see video below), but more amazingly, a group of Nirvana stand-ins shouted, "Let's go, hoagies!"
Hoagies, as in sandwiches ... not Hokies, the official VT mascot.
Pretty awesome. Here's the video response Sub Pop issued ...
