Freaked Easter Egg - Bill & Ted?

In the 1993 movie Freaked, Alex Winter is a spoiled young actor paid millions to advertise for a noxious chemical, only to mutated by it courtesy of an evil scientist. Needless to say, the evil doctor (played by Randy Quaid) has made other freaks, including a Dog-boy (who dresses like a militant rebel). But one would notice that the actor who plays the Dog-boy is not listed in the final credits. He's portrayed by Keanu Reeves, co-star of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (with Alex Winter).

I actually have a copy of "Freaked" (don't ask me why...) and while I'm *pretty* sure Keanu Reeves is listed in the credits, I'm absolutely certain that he was listed on the box. And I quote, "and Keanu Reeves as Ortiz The Dog Boy". Besides, in what way is this an egg?

The full copy from the back of my copy of Freaked: "Ricky Coogan (ALEX WINTER) is a greedy, spoiled brat-pack star who sells his soul to an evil mega-coporation, becoming a high-priced celebrity pitchman. On a journey to South America promoting the company's toxic fertilizer, he finds his show business career mutates in a new direction. During a visit to a theme park filled with oddities, the demented proprietor (RANDY QUAID) transforms Coogin and his two friends (MICHAEL STOYANOV and MEGAN WARD) into star freak show attractions! Now they've got to find a way to get normal - or at least as normal as they've ever been. Faeturing Morgan Fairchild, Bobcat Goldthwait, Brooke Shields, and Mr. T as the Bearded Lady, it's a carnival of monstrous comedy that will leave you "Freaked!" Color, 1993, approx. 78 minutes Twentieth Century Fox presents a Tommy production FREAKED Alex Winter Randy Quaid William Sadler Megan Ward Michael Stoyanov Bobcat Goldthwait Mr. T Brooke Shields Music by Kevin Kiner Music Supervised by Karyn Rachtman Edited by Malcolm Campbell Production Designer Catherine Hardwicke Director of Photography Jamie Thompson CoProducers Tom Stern & Alex Winter Line Producer Ginny Nugent Written by Tim Burns & Tom Stern & Alex Winter Produced by Harry J. Ufland and Mary Jane Ufland Directed by Tom Stern & Alex Winter" All copy is copyright of Twentieth Century Fox, 1993 Taking into consideration the magnatude of stardom that Keanu was in during 1993 (and future), I find it EXTREMELY odd that he would have been left completely out of any of the copy. His appearance was intentionally kept a secret, otherwise he would have had space in the copy, his name in the beginning and end credits, and makeup to make him look more like Keanu Reeves than the love child of Che Guevera and Lon Chaney Jr. during a full moon.
