31 Days of Horror (Music Videos) Day 22: The best song about Freddy Krueger is from DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, natch, but it doesn't qualify for this project because they never made a video for "Nightmare On My Street!"
Well if there is, I've never seen it! I remember a million years ago on MTV they teased that they were going to premiere the video but it never happened, there was commercials saying "tune in at (insert time) to see DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's new video with Freddy!" I swear, my 8 year-old self remembers that and I think my older brothers and sister would vouch for me too!
When I was getting a link for today's video, I gambled and looked on Youtube anyways, just to see if there was one and for a short moment I was tricked by a fan video!
A few years ago, I was at a party with Will Smith there and if given the chance that is seriously something I wanted to ask him about!
If Freddy was a big part of your childhood, like he was in mine (thankfully not in my dreams), here is a video with him and another relevant "hip-hop" of the time, The Fat Boys! So... "Are You Ready For Freddy?"
PS: I couldn't believe I was wearing stripes when I met Freddy at Sundance 2008, when he was there (actually he was at Slamdance) promoting this rad horror film where he plays a fumble-bum professor in Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer!
