XTC- The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead- Promo Uncensored Video© 1992 Virgin Records LTDExtract from " Nonsuch 5.1 Surround Mix" (CD-Blu-Ray)For more info please visit : are two different versions of this music video, both of which feature a scenario very similar to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, although one is heavily edited for US TV broadcast and removes much of the more controversial material. They also briefly feature an actress dressed like Marilyn Monroe during the 3rd verse. In addition, the uncensored video makes brief reference to Jesus Christ by flashing the words "three nails" and showing a crown of thorns. The lyrics "Peter Pumpkinhead was too good; Had him nailed to a chunk of wood" reinforce this crucifixion reference. It also cross references all three stories by strongly implying that the death of all three were caused by some sort of government conspiracy.
