Kurt Cobain Shows Up as Shotgun-Holding Hologram on ‘South Park’

On ‘South Park”s season finale this week, Kurt Cobain showed up as a hologram. He was there to help celebrate Christmas, and even got into the spirit of the season by singing a song next to a festively decorated tree. Then he pulled out a shotgun.

The reference, of course, is to the Nirvana frontman’s suicide in 1994. But after hologram Cobain loaded the shotgun and pulled the trigger, a “Merry Christmas” flag appeared from the barrel. Cartman, who was providing live commentary of the televised ‘Holiday Spectacular’ that he and his pals were hosting, noted that this is how Cobain would want to be remembered.

As Cobain sang his version of ‘Up on the Housetop,’ messages flashed by stating “#courtneydidIt” and “Smashing Pumpkins were better.” You can watch the episode above. (If you’d rather just see the Cobain part, skip to about 12:25.)

Cobain wasn’t the only one to get the ‘South Park’ treatment on this week’s episode. A hologram Bill Cosby was there, too, offering Taylor Swift a drink, and Michael Jackson showed up as Peter Pan.
