Kurt Cobain Is Alive and Well, According to Beer Commercial

Kurt Cobain  isn't dead at all -- he's basking in the sun on a tropical island, strumming a guitar next to John Lennon , while  Marilyn Monroe  relaxes nearby. Oh, and everyone's drinking Bavaria Radler beer.

This scene was dreamed up by the folks at Bavaria Radler in a new commercial featuring the Cobain lookalike, who's wearing Kurt's signature white sunglasses and cardigan sweater. The gist of the commercial is that the long-departed celebrities -- who also include  Tupac Shakur  and  Elvis Presley -- are having such a good time on the beach with their Dutch beer that they hide from a rescue ship -- spotted by  Bruce Lee  -- when it appears on the horizon.

The commercial -- which has been slammed by  Time  and  SPIN  as being "[of] questionable taste" and "awful," respectively -- can be seen on Bavaria's  Facebook page  and  YouTube channel
