A student has written to Sub Pop records asking Nirvana to record a video message for their university.
Sub Pop were so surprised by the letter that they posted it online - least of all because the band has been inactive since 1994 when frontman Kurt Cobain died.
The student at Virginia Tech University offered Nirvana the chance to promote themselves to 30,000 students during homecoming week, with a "quick video" that says: "What up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you a Happy Homecoming week and good luck at the game this Saturday. Let's Go Hokies!"
The author doesn't seem to realise that Nirvana are one of the biggest bands of all time. "It presents great publicity for them," the letter reads. "They would be among artists including Big N' Rich, Ying Yang Twins, the Cataracs, Slightly Stoopid and three famous NFL players."
Sub Pop have taken it upon themselves to dress as Nirvana and submit a video, which will be posted soon.
The only way this could be funnier is if Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic get together and record the video. Do you think it can happen? Hit the 'Like' button below and let's see if we can get it on their radar!
