Hack-a-Shaq: If Basketball Star Was Trying to Destroy Damning Evidence, Why Is It So Easy to Find the Rap Scene From Kazaam?

Former Heat center and future Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O'Neal is being sued for allegedly hacking into the accounts of a former employee and a former mistress, allegedly to frame one with child pornography and to simply harass the other. In general, the lawsuit alleges that O'Neal was trying to destroy evidence in the form of photos and emails that proved he had multiple affairs while married.

But if Shaq truly had a talent for hacking, why did he fail to destroy the most embarrassing evidence of his poor judgment? I'm speaking of the rap scene from the 1996 film Kazaam.
