Happy 20th Anniversary to Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Music Video

As noted by our friends at Slicing Up Eyeballs, today (August 17) marks an important milestone in music history. The above casting flier (via LA Snark) - not an uncommon sight in the LA area - brought  a slew of 18-25 year old locals dressed as "preppies, punks, nerds, and jocks" together with first-time director Samuel Brayer and a young three-person band called Nirvana for the filming of their new video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" at 11:30am. 12 hours later, they'd captured the footage that would change the world of rock music forever.

Check out the final Cobain-edited video below and a making-of featurette over here. Thanks again, Nirvana.
