▪ One of the people involved becomes tremendously famous, making the video useful to biographers and historians;
▪ A criminal case develops in which the video provides valuable evidence in the pursuit of justice;
▪ My friend gets divorced, and later I reveal the video and we have a good laugh;
▪ Despite my precautions, the video somehow makes it online and leads to the implosion of the marriage.
I have never told anyone this video exists. Would you suggest I erase it or continue to hold onto it?
Stuck on the Evidence

Erase the video, now.
