VIDEO: Watch this rarely seen commercial for Nirvana’s ‘In Utero’
Know how we know we’re getting old? Because it’s already time for the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s third and last album In Utero, releasing as a reissue this coming September. (Also, need we remind you what the naked baby from the Nevermind cover looks like now?).
So, yeah, we guess we must be pretty old, because it feels like just yesterday that all commercials looked like the rarely seen In Utero promo video above, which was just dug up from the Internet nether-regions and put on YouTube to promote the upcoming deluxe reissue.
Ready for you mid-week super rad 90s flashback? Because that’s what it is. Plastic baby dolls shooting from between Cobain and Co.’s legs! (Also, look how young Dave Grohl looks.) Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait in drag as some sort of nightmare Lamaze instructor! They don’t make sh—t like this anymore, and it’s a shame.
If we were Buzzfeed, we’d dig up an entire Listicle of things that will similarly remind you of a time when you were sure you looked good in flannel and overalls and music/the media/everything was this much better. But we’re not, so we’ll let this video speak for itself. It speaks loudly.
