"The Time Freddy Krueger Became a Nightmare for Will Smith"

“It is in this month that many individuals will make their decision whether Nightmare IV is a film that they are interested in viewing,” wrote Ward in his decision. “Thus, the telecast of the lower quality DJ Jazzy Jeff video with the somewhat silly and less frightening Freddy could dissuade an unspecified number of individuals from seeing the film.” The injunction was granted, with a full hearing to be held at a later date.

That didn’t happen—both parties settled out of court. While the song remained on the record, it began to ship with a disclaimer that it wasn’t associated with New Line; the video, which had aired only briefly on MTV, was pulled, and the court ordered that all copies be destroyed."

Nothing new I guess but the last line is interesting because that would mean that its still not "safe" to release the video even if someone got a copy of it (which we certainly do believe, right?) as it was not only pulled but ordered destroyed.

I still have a feeling we'll see it one day... remember how it took many years before the "The Things That U Do" video resurfaced?
