Linus, the freezer method does not work to recover hard drives - remove your video!

If all other available options have been expended and the drive is otherwise useless, I don't see the harm in trying. There's nothing to lose at that point.
However if the data was valuable enough to justify professional recovery fees, I would bypass this and any method of recovery that had the potential to make the issue worse.
I guess it may also have the *potential* -- although unlikely -- to void a warranty?
I believe it is professionally ethical to include relevant disclaimers, but there's no need to remove the video.
