Settled, in Jazzy/Fresh's favor, or in New Line's favor?

If it was in Jazzy and Smith's favor, then I'm sure VH1Classic could dig the video up.

Well part of the deal was to pull the video because whodini already had a nightmare video out at the time.. As part of the deal with jjfp they had a 3 movie contract or something... one of the movies new line offered jazzy jeff/fresh prince was house party but they turned it down.. actually heres the quote from Jeff,...

When we did ‘Nightmare On My Street’ New Line Cinema sued the daylights out of us, but they liked the record and they thought Will and I were talented from ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand.’ So part of the settlement was that we had to pay them some money, but they offered us two scripts to do two movies and if we didn’t want to do them then that was the end of the deal. Back then we were like all we gotta do is say no to the two scripts and we out. The first script was House Party because if you think about the premise of House Party one dude was a Dj and the other was a rapper so House Party was set up for Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. We weren’t thinking about doing movies back then. They were like what do you think about this and we were like oh we don’t like it and what about this oh we don’t like it ha we out. Then we were like oh **** Kid N Play blew up off of that. That was the whole situation it was part of a settlement with New Line. It was one of those things where they were like you guys took our concept and we’re mad, but we ain’t stupid enough to not know you guys aren’t talented. So we’re mad but we want to try and make this relationship work. It was cool because Will ended up doing some stuff with New Line later on and everything kinda worked out.

The Whodini video was for Nightmare 5, in 1989. It was probably because of The Fat Boys video, which was in 88.

Still not clear on if the video can ever be seen again, or if the pull was just temporary. *scratches head*

I still get e-mails from people saying they swear they saw the nightmare video.. it must have been shown a few times atleast for a couple of weeks...people tell me it was similar to the girls & parents just dont understand videos.. I've never heard of anyone seeing it or having a copy of the vid since 1988 tho :sipread:

Yeah, would be interesting to see this video.

I'm interested if they really got Freddy Krueger a.ka. Robert Englund in it? That would

be funny to see how Freddy's hunting FP. :biggrin:

I think you are right, Jonny. Someone was saying they were involved with the vid, they were describing the video to us a little bit, if I remember correctly.

No to sound dumb or anything, since I'm a newbie. So, the music video is never shown to anyone or something?
