Notes: John and Yoko asked their friend, avante garde film maker Jonas Mekas to put together a promo video for their new single "Cold Turkey".
Jonas mostly used footage from the Montreal bed-in and some brief bits from the Toronto festival performance plus other random non John footage and edited them all together with very quick cuts.
The video was premiered on "Top of The Pops" in early November. This seems to be the only official release of the original promo.
