Conspiracy Rock, A JFK Assassination Parody of Schoolhouse Rock

“Conspiracy Rock” is a 1992 parody of Schoolhouse Rock about the John F. Kennedy assassination directed by Scott Rosann. Our friend Jason Scott worked on the animation and art direction for the film, he has an extensive write-up about it on his blog.

This video debuted at Emerson College in 1992, as part of a live show by the Emerson comedy troupe This Is Pathetic. After making the rounds at several broadcast outlets (including SNL, where it is rumored that Al Franken personally savaged it as unfaithful to conspiracy theory canon), the bit finally aired multiple times on Comedy Central during the week of November 22, 1993.
