|Single by Marilyn Manson|
|from the album Portrait of an American Family/Smells Like Children|
|Marilyn Manson singles chronology|
The song was remixed on their album, Smells Like Children, under the titles of "Diary of a Dope Fiend" (reference to the Diary of a Drug Fiend by Aleister Crowley)(a slower, more ominous version) and "Dance of the Dope Hats" (a faster and more synthesized version). The music video was inspired by Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, particularly the Wondrous Boat Ride scene.
The music video, directed by Tom Stern, features the band riding a boat through a psychedelic tunnel directly inspired by the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, one of Manson's favorite films. The boat is carrying the band members, young children & the Oompa Loompas from the aforementioned movie. CGI effects in the video were created by Xavier Guerin. The video also includes bizarre things in the background, such as a hand breaking an egg and blood coming out of it and cutting a melon in two and fish coming from the inside.
