Virginia Tech Student asks Nirvana to record Homecoming Video
Some clown… errr, scratch that. We are supposed to keep the Virginia Tech mascot’s identity a secret. Some secret person actually wrote to Sub Pop Records, Nirvana’s former Record Label, asking if Nirvana were willing to record a video wishing a happy homecoming to the Hokies.
For reasons undefined, the unnamed assailant doesn’t seem to realise that Nirvana haven’t existed since Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994, but on a hope and a prayer, and with the knowledge that “Virginia Tech loves Nirvana” and that it “presents great publicity” for Nirvana, the mascot didn’t let that deter him from his brazen request to read the following message:
“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!”
But it doesn’t stop there, they later go on to speak praises for the “great quality” of videos captures on iPhones.
Those crazy critters at Sub Pop rose to the occasion though. They filmed the video the mascot was hoping for. Instead of snaring Nirvana, Sub Pop used Mark Arm or Mud Honey fame Sub Pop filmed the clip and sent it to the student with a “Good luck with Homecoming” message. The student didn’t seem to notice that is wasn’t Nirvana, going as far as replying to Sub Pop to let them know that they “are the best” and that they are “awesome”.
Here is the video Sub Pop made.
Here are the texts exchanged by Sup Pop and the student.
