Video: See Nirvana rouse this little drummer boy
14:38 CEST+02:00
A 3-year-old boy of Norwegian-Chilean descent is rapidly achieving star status on the internet for a video that shows him breaking into a wild drum solo as he's jolted awake by a Nirvana classic blaring on the car stereo.

With the boy asleep in the back seat, his Chilean mother and half brother crank up the volume on Nirvana's Breed and look on in hysterics as the talented 3-year-old from Trondheim does a mean impression of drummer Dave Grohl.

"The last time we woke him up in the car, he got so grumpy and cranky. And since he loves this kind of music we just had to try a new method," the boy's brother, Esteban Reyes, explained on YouTube.

As for the boy not being strapped into a child seat or properly secured with a safety belt, a detail that has elicited criticism from many commenters, Reyes said he and his mother were sorry: "Seat belt is our fault".
