Marvel Comics picked a classic to tease their new Netflix series, The Defenders.
The commercial makes good use of both the studio and “Unplugged” versions of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are,” using Kurt Cobain’s vocal track and the main riff separately. No scenes of the show are in the ad– only layers being stripped away to reveal clues of importance for the upcoming series.
“Come As You Are” was the second single released on 1991’s Nevermind, and was Nirvana’s second hit following “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
The Defenders will premiere sometime next year on Netflix.
