You may have heard of a little band called Nirvana. And if you've heard of them, you've probably seen the iconic cover of their second album, Nevermind, featuring a naked baby in a pool grabbing for that sweet, sweet dollar.
Now, that baby is BACK, baby. His name is Spencer Elden and to celebrate the album's 25th anniversary he's recreated the shot for the New York Post, though this time without his willy out.
Apparently he was totally up for getting his trousers off, but the photographer said not to. WTF? Shoddy work, tbh.
Anyway, it's a pretty cool shoot and he seemed to have a damn good time splashing around.

He told the Post: "The anniversary means something to me. It's strange that I did this for five minutes when I was four months old and it became this really iconic image."
Well, thanks for bringing it back, Spencer. Rock on.
