UPDATE: Sub Pop aka ‘Nirvana’ has responded with a video at the bottom of the post as promised
A Virginia Tech homecoming candidate (and mascot) wrote to Sub Pop to ask if Nirvana would be willing to record a video message in support of her campaign. She appears to not realize that Nirvana hasn’t been Nirvana since Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. Sub Pop wrote on their tumblr:
Earlier today in the Sub Pop mailbag, we received an enthusiastic message from a college student running for homecoming queen. She asked for a video affirming support from our one time recording artists, Nirvana, in order to aid her campaign in becoming homecoming queen. We dressed up and obliged.
Video forthcoming with the script: “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. LET’S GO HOAGIES!” Or something like that.
See the letter below:
Here’s the video Sub Pop sent her:
