There is a video attached to my profile that doesn't feature me.  Please find it here:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2728724/videogallery?ref_=nm_phs_vi

Please let me know how it may be removed.  I already submitted the request by trying to edit the page.  

Thank you!

Matt

A credit for the episode appears in your filmography. That's why your name appears in the tag for the video. So, it should not be removed.

While Bluesman has correctly stated the current IMDb policy (see http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/nest/199272522), this clip points to the idea that the policy needs to be revised. The video clip, which is only 1 minute and 10 seconds long, features only two people with speaking parts, neither of whom is the original poster, Matt Kohler. Matt plays a "Greek Gladiator" in the episode, but the clip doesn't show any character like that. Due to the segmented format of the series ("Betty White's Off Their Rockers"), I don't know how sure we can be that this clip even came from an episode Matt appeared in.

The bottom line is that if one wanted to learn about Matt's filmography through the medium of video, this clip would not be too helpful.

Agreed gromit82.  I don't believe that clip is even from the episode I appeared in and it certainly doesn't feature me in the video.  Is there another way to submit a request for removal?  

Thank you!

Now that I take another look, I see that it is tagged as being from the title "Simple Favors." I don't see that title in the list of episodes but most don't have titles, but just episode numbers. It even says, under the video, on the page you linked, "Simple Favors."

If you click on the video, to start it, you should see (I opened up the How to Report section):

I'd report it as not being the same episode to which it links and therefore going to the wrong Name Pages.
