It was originally intended to be a bonus feature on the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back DVD, but due to its length, it became a standalone feature. Plans for inclusion on the Clerks X DVD were scrapped for similar reasons. It has since been screened at several of Smith's "Vulgarthon" film festivals. According to an early 2009 Q&A session with Smith in Vancouver, the full film would be included on a future Blu-ray release of Clerks,[2] ultimately being available on the November 2009 release.
