How The Music Video "Vaccine Zombie" Predicted COVID-19
Dissecting the Pandemic-Industrial-Complex
A recurring themes I’ve tried to expose with the Forgotten Side of Medicine are the forgotten stories of the past victims of the medical-industrial complex. One of the most important takeaways from those stories is that the same tragedies repeat themselves, and much of the unbelievable malfeasance we are seeing now with the COVID-19 vaccines has in fact happened (and been swept under the rug) many times in the past.
Since humans are creatures of habit, and the entire propaganda apparatus is fairly uncreative, once a method of manipulating the public proves itself to be effective, it gets reused until the end of time by governments and corporations seeking to sell something obscene to the American public. Because of this, I’ve sought to do my best to:
•Expose the lies we all saw throughout the pandemic.
•Illustrate exactly how they were assembled.
•Highlight how each of them was used many times in the past.
My hope is that by doing each of these, I can play a part in making us resistant to the schemes cooked up by public relations firms and marketing departments. Until that immunity exists, things completely at odd with reality like how we handled COVID-19 will be continue to be pushed on the public.

Certain divisions within the federal government have had a long standing policy to hype up each new infectious disease. Per my understanding (which may be wrong), this is primarily motivated by a need for those agencies to justify their importance to Congress so they can get their desired funding in the annual budget. In turn everyone else goes along with it because:
•The media likes to sell messages based on fear.
•Most of our political leaders have a very minimal knowledge of public health, so they typically defer to what either “experts” or the media tells them to do.
Note: This was a huge problem during COVID-19. As detailed in Scott Atlas’s excellent memoir about the federal coronavirus response, Ron DeSantis was one of the only governors who chose to try and make sense of the data themselves to develop an evidence-based policy for the pandemic rather than simply deferring to experts. DeSantis was widely attacked in the media for doing this, but ultimately was vindicated by the results he got for Florida. The only other governor I know who did something similar to DeSantis was Kristi Noem of South Dakota.
•These messages promote the interests of the pharmaceutical industry. Specifically, the industry, gets to serve as the “heroes” that save us from the disease and be paid a lot of money in the process (with products that are frequently defective and harmful).
•The pharmaceutical industry is the primary sponsor of the mainstream media, further incentivizing this type of coverage.
Because of this, we have an almost annual tradition of the media hyping up some new infectious disease for us to be terrified of, despite those predictions almost never coming to pass. By the same token, the thing that initially made me so concerned about COVID-19 was that between December 2019 to Early March 2020, the media actively downplayed any concerns about it (e.g., “it’s just a Flu Bro”) which seemed very odd given that all the information on the ground showed this to at last be the dangerous pandemic the CDC had warned about for decades.
Note: for those interested in learning more about the pandemic-industrial-complex, the most detailed summary I have come across can be found within The Real Anthony Fauci.
About ten years ago, I saw a tongue-in-cheek music video making fun of the Federal Pandemic Response Apparatus based off Michael Jackson’s famous music video. As this brief video forms the foundation of this article, I would like to request you watch it before going further:
Note: the video originally uploaded to Substack did not upload correctly; the above video now works and can also be viewed on the author’s website.
What should immediately jump out at you is how accurately this video predicted much of what came to pass a decade later with COVID-19. The remarkable thing about the 2010 video was that it was an attempt to provide a satirical over-the-top representation of what happened during the 2009 swine flu pandemic, where the “swine flu emergency” was used to push an experimental vaccine onto the population which subsequently injured enough people for some of its dangers to actually be acknowledged by the medical profession (e.g., it caused cases of narcolepsy).
Unfortunately, in the same way that propaganda techniques that work get carbon-copied if they are shown to work, those techniques are also escalated each time their efficacy can be demonstrated. The best analogy I can give to this is the cycle of an abusive relationship, whereas once a certain degree of abuse becomes normalized and accepted in the relationship, that is always followed by an escalation of the amount of abuse which occurs within the relationship.
Note: This escalation is somewhat akin to how the goal posts with vaccines are often moved after they fail to live up to their promises and more and more extreme “public health” measures need to be implemented.
As a result, what was made out to be completely over-the-top in 2010 became the “new normal” in 2020.
The CDC and the Zombie Apocalypse
In 2011, the CDC decided to launch a cringe-worthy publicity campaign through social media to raise awareness of basic disaster prevention by framing it within the zombie horror genre with tag lines of how the CDC would save everyone such as “Never Fear-CDC is ready.”
What is truly odd about this campaign is how much it overlapped with the Vaccine Zombie music video, to the point I thought it must have inspired the video until I verified it came out 9 months later. After many people drew attention to its eerie peculiarities with the pandemic response, the CDC erased it—but fortunately, it can still be viewed within the internet archive.
Part of the campaign involved making it into a comic (which can be downloaded from the archive here). In that comic, the protagonist has a zombie apocalypse start around him, and before long is instructed to hides at home (quarantining) while waiting for the instructions from CDC as he runs out of food. I wanted to highlight a few parts of it:
First, when the zombies show up at the house, the animals are the first to notice, including this dilapidated cat (I’ve named the CDC cat):
Second, it illustrated the CDC’s long-standing fantasy of pushing emergency vaccines:
Once the CDC’s miraculous vaccine is available, the main character can finally leave his home quarantine and desperately tries to get the mass vaccination site as soon as possible. Once there, he must of course be tested for the infection before being allowed to be with anyone else.
Finally, the CDC saves the day with vaccines!
Vaccine Zombie and COVID-19
Many people understandably believe the CDC zombie campaign was a form of predictive programming that was used to prepare the public for complying during COVID-19. I believe another plausible explanation also exists: this comic was a candid illustration of the psyche of the CDC, and simply gave us a window into the same thought process that later emerged during COVID-19.
In the next part of the article, we are going to review how almost every single thing contained with Vaccine Zombie came to pass during COVID-19. If any of you have examples I did not include in here that fit better with any of the lyrics, I would be happy to include them. While reading these, I to get the most out of it, I would suggest listening to the music video:
Many of you will remembers scenes like this:
Each time we questioned their decision to do this, the response was always the same:
If we tried to point out the clear safety issues, there was a common refrain:
Significantly worse side effects were also commonly declared by health authorities to be a sign the vaccine was “working.”
I and other providers are of the opinion taking Ibuprofen and Tylenol often significantly worsened the course of COVID-19. Most people who had COVID were instructed to take these two medications and then wait at home until they needed to be hospitalized.
I have also come across someone who had the same experience as Nicki Minaj’s cousin. Additionally, one of my colleagues had a patient who developed severe testicular swelling after the vaccine and a blood clot throughout one leg, but their patient is still not willing to acknowledge the injury might have come from the vaccine.
While this song is in jest, I hesitate to make a joke about the next lyric, as seeing it has been an all too common experience for many of us (I personally know dozens of people this has happened to) so I will just quote it directly:
“The nurse screamed and said something was missin'
she called the physician who said he had a suspicion
that the vaccine caused a neurological condition
and soon I would see the mortician”
One of the saddest adverse vaccine events I have witnessed are my friend’s elderly parents developing rapid cognitive decline and dementia following the vaccination (likely due to blood clots). For example, I recently wrote an article on this subject (which became widely viewed due to how many people had had similar experiences to those detailed within it) and Steve Kirsch recently discussed the alarming rate of rapid cognitive decline observed in the elderly who were vaccinated at nursing homes.
This however is one of the more concerning zombie dementias associated with the vaccines:
None of these authors worked for the CDC. Montagnier, a hero of mine who has published numerous incredible papers, passed away recently.
I have a lot of sympathy for people who were tricked into the initial vaccine. However it’s difficult for me to feel the same way for people who have not realized it’s a scam by their 4th shot, especially those I know who developed serious blood clots after the first booster.
*the above chorus repeats here so I won’t reinsert it*
Note: I believe the vaccines were most likely initially given to health care workers in order to help market them to the general public.
The vaccine envy campaign was one of the most rediculous PR campaigns I saw. I have sincere empathy for those who took the initial vaccines, as this vaccine push was possibly the most aggressive PR campaign in history.
Whenever I show this video to someone, the next two lines are typically the most challenging for them:
This speaks to a lot of people’s traumatic experiences with the medical system, the debilitating injuries they are stuck with 24 hours a day and their years of guilt over the decision. I have seen multiple people emotionally fall apart hearing this, and it is important to have some sensitivity with this lyric.
After I first wrote about this song, Igor Chutov then alerted me to an alternative example to use for this lyric (this is real).
Protesters have been arrested around the world. Some of the first were in Australia and were the ones who inspired me to try and bring awareness over the same thing happening with the deadly smallpox vaccine over a century ago.
In order to protect the vaccine market, any competing therapy was demonized. While this commonly happens to herbs and supplements (hence the lyric), it was remarkable to see it also be done to existing pharmaceutical drugs no one could profit off of (the only similar precedent I know of to this was what happened during the early days of AIDS).
I believe the vaccine lottery Mike Adams foresaw was the Russian Roulette of getting a hot vaccine lot, but it still amazes me that we actually had real life vaccine lotteries to market the. vaccine.
It is well known that Vitamin D levels are the one of the most important things for preventing the flu (which cycles with periods of low sunlight), and do much much more than any influenza vaccine. Despite this, Vitamin D is never promoted by a public health official and instead frequently attacked (since it takes business away from the current vaccine). I hence suspected Vitamin D would help for COVID-19 and be covered up by the medical-industrial complex
As it so happened, throughout COVID there were actually multiple statements by nutritional and medical associations warning against measuring or providing Vitamin D for COVID.
Note: the internment camps in Australia were for returning travelers to quarantine them so they would not bring COVID into the population (which nonetheless happened).
On a recent Joe Rogan interview with Peter Hotez MD (one of the “academic leaders” of the vaccine movement), Hotez expressed the urgent need for each of these vaccines (even though Ivermectin for example is superior by all metrics to a parasite vaccine for his goal of treating endemic parasite infections). For context, Hotez’s grift has received millions of dollars over decades to develop that vaccine, and all the research has gone nowhere.
I’m honestly not sure if Hannah was aware of what she was getting into when her profile appeared in articles highlighting one of the many online dating platforms pushing vaccination.
Shingles became a common issue after the (completely unnecessary) chicken pox campaigns caused the adult population to lose herd immunity to the the virus. One of the curious side effects of the COVID vaccine is immune suppression, which has caused many people, including those I know to develop often very severe cases of shingles (along with much rarer and severe forms of shingles in many, including public figures such as Justin Bieber and Senator Dianne Feinstein).
It is very common for pharmaceutical companies to patent solutions to the side effects of their drugs, as evidenced by many companies developing anticoagulant drugs for the proliferation of blood clots that have been seen since the COVID vaccines were put on the market
Note: this is the same interview which I sourced Hotez’s now infamous remarks (seen by over 10 million people) about junk food and vaccines from—which I initially came across while reviewing the Rogan interview for parallels to the Vaccine Zombie song.
This lyric is a reference to psychiatric medications (particularly SSRIs) being known to cause psychosis (e.g., hearing voices in their heads) and horrific acts of violence (e.g., school shootings) Actual psych meds, especially SSRIs are known for causing tragic events after their recipient becomes psychotic.
In regards to the current issue, directly know two people who became psychotic after COVID and one who become psychotic after the COVID vaccine. A friend who is a psychiatrist told me he has also seen this happen after vaccination. From what we’ve seen, the psychiatric change commonly associated with the vaccine are typically not severe enough to cause psychosis.
There were too many myths to choose which myths to use for this lyric...
Dr. Wen frequently lies and on the TV has been one of the most aggressive proponents for vaccines mandates.
My sincere hope is that one day, someone with better video editing skills than me combines these images into a music video.
My sincere hope is that the over the top propaganda we saw throughout COVID-19 will function as something that will provide a strong enough assault on the human psyche to begin creating population wide immunity to these types of scams. If that does not happen, we can be relatively sure the unchecked greed of the pharmaceutical industry will continue to escalate.
While that is possible, I am quite hopeful we are moving down a different path, as the number of people who are awake to these longstanding issues is now far greater than it has been at any previous moment in my lifetime and I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for the work each of you have done to help move us towards the better the path. I hope you enjoyed this piece, and I sincerely appreciate each of you for your support of this Substack.
