How about a little heart-shaped box retro news to stroke your Valentine’s Day feels! Earlier this week, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), reunited with the little girl from Nirvana’s 1993 hit video Heart- Shaped Box.
Nirvana was the biggest band on the planet in 1993 and a 6-year-old girl named Kelsey Rohr found herself in the midst of it all, joining the legendary grunge trio in a video for a song called “Heart-Shaped Box” off of the bands album “In Utero“. In the Anton Corbijn-directed video, Rohr appeared in a white robe with a peaked cap. Here’s the original “Heart-Shaped Box” video: (Rohr appears around the 1:28 mark)
Cut to 23 years later and Rohr is an adult, who recently had a chance to reunite with one of Nirvana’s members. In an Instagram post, Rohr shared a photo of herself with Dave Grohl. Her comment on the post reads, “Today Dave Grohl and I picked up right where we left off 23 years ago on set of Nirvana’s last music video ‘Heart-Shaped Box.’ Today reminded me that I peaked at 6 years old BUT I was the most badass kid on the playground. Today was the absolute coolest. Or in Dave’s words seeing each other today was a ‘historic moment!’ What a legend!!”
Dave Grohl most certainly has to be contending for one of the nicest guys in rock n roll, only just recently recovering from a glorious throne, from which he was forced to shred for months after shattering his leg during a concert when he fell off stage. Six-moths later it’s back to nice-guy business as usual without missing a beat.
This is not the first time a child from Nirvana’s history has resurfaced. A few years back, a college-aged Spencer Elden resurfaced in association with the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Elden appeared as the baby famously swimming toward the almighty dollar on the cover of the disc. Nirvana’s Nevermind went on to be certified for Diamond sales of over 10 million copies. Meanwhile, the follow-up In Utero reached five times platinum in sales.
