"Nirvana" Responds to Hilarious Request for Homecoming Video

The internet was buzzing yesterday with the story of a naïve Virginia Tech mascot who contacted Sub Pop records in hopes of receiving a video message from Nirvana for the school’s homecoming week. The letter was seemingly written without a clue of Kurt Cobain’s death, or that Nirvana wasn’t a person (the band was referred to as “she”).

Yesterday, the legendary Seattle label helped the student out by providing a video of a makeshift Nirvana, which featured Mudhoney’s Mark Arm.

Watch ‘Nirvana’ tap into their teen spirit and yell “GO HOKIES!” below.

Here is the student’s grateful response to the video.
