As the song becomes more dense and frenetic, Jeremy's behavior becomes increasingly agitated. Strobe lighting adds to the anxious atmosphere. Jeremy is shown standing, arms raised in a V as described in the lyrics at the beginning of the song , in front of a wall of billowing flames.
Jeremy is later shown staring at the camera while wrapped in an American flag , surrounded by fire. Jeremy then stands shirtless in an artificial forest surrounding by various drawings, becoming aggravated, breaking off a branch, and swinging it at various trees in anger, all the while the lights flashed around Jeremy's body. The final scene of the video shows Jeremy striding into class shirtless, tossing an apple to the teacher, and standing before his classmates.
He reaches down and draws back his arm as he takes a gun out of his pocket The gun only appears onscreen in the unedited version of the video. The edited version cuts to an extreme close-up of Jeremy's face as he puts the barrel of the gun in his mouth, closes his eyes, and pulls the trigger.
After a flash of light, the screen turns black. The next shot is a pan across the classroom, showing Jeremy's blood-spattered classmates, all completely still, recoiling in horror. The video ends on a shot of a dangling blackboard, on which all the harsh terms and phrases seen earlier had been scrawled. MTV restrictions on violent imagery prevented Pellington from showing Jeremy putting the gun in his mouth and pulling the trigger at the climax of the video.
Pellington himself dismisses this interpretation of the video. The idea is, that's his blood on them, and they're frozen at the moment of looking. In the MTV version of the video, there is a brief shot of Jeremy's classmates making a gesture that could be either the American Bellamy salute or the Hitler salute ; in the original cut of the video this scene is longer.
The video is shot in such a way that the camera pan shows the alternate salute while traveling in the opposite direction After "Jeremy", Pearl Jam backed away from making music videos. The prosecutors for the case said shooter, Barry Loukaitis , was influenced by the edited version of the music video. It is still available on the internet, on websites such as YouTube.
It can also occasionally be seen playing at Hard Rock Cafe locations. The video occasionally airs on MTV Classic. The video was included in MuchMusic 's list of the 12 most controversial videos.
The reason was because of the topic of suicide , and recent school shootings. The scene of Jeremy with the gun in his mouth was not shown. It was also included on VH1's countdown of the " Greatest Songs of the '90s" at number 11,  with several clips of the video shown, including part of the ending. The uncensored version of the video was shown as part of the retrospective "Pearl Jam Ten Revisited" on VH1 Classic in prior to the album's re-release, including the shot in which Jeremy puts the gun in his mouth.
The band had intended to perform the Dead Boys song " Sonic Reducer ", but MTV insisted that it play "Jeremy" since the song's music video was already in heavy rotation. It had been released after the deadline for that year's awards. At the end of the intense performance, Vedder managed to sneak in a reference to the Dead Boys song by singing the first line of "Sonic Reducer", "I don't need no I don't need no mom and dad.
