Three weeks after Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell died by hanging himself in a Detroit hotel room, the final music video he shot has reportedly been pulled off YouTube, possibly because it showed multiple characters being hung in the Old West.
As Alternative Nation writes, the video for “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” was released in 2015 and features Cornell and Eric Roberts playing prisoners who are going to be hanged.
Here’s how the video played out, as Alternative Nation describes it:
Cornell marches towards the noose and it is placed around his neck, as a young boy, played by Cornell’s son Christopher Cornell, watches. An onlooker (Elena Satine) distracts the hangman, Cornell’s noose is sabotaged by the executioner’s assistant so he survives his hanging, and he is forced into marriage with the woman who sabotaged his hanging. The video ends with the other prisoner about to be hanged and the onlooker about to play her part again.
A YouTube spokesperson denied that the company pulled the video itself, tamping down speculation that the clip had violated community guidelines.
Though the official video seems to be gone, other YouTube videos of “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” still exist, including a lyrics video and various live performances.
The original video can also still be seen on Vimeo, available below for those who wish to view it.
Update 6:27pm CT, June 12: YouTube has denied pulling the video. We’ve updated our headline to better reflect the latest information.
