I have the same video of myself and it's already been posted on several outlets.
With your express written consent, no doubt.

I got a third of these emails today. I've already changed my passwords, and there's been no further communications other than to threaten to blackmail me with a video I know doesn't exist.

Just hit "spam" on it and "block sender". The sender's email address will probably change, so that might not help much, but most email systems do a decent job of filtering out most of the spam if you are diligent at teaching it what you consider spam.

It's pretty clear that you are just on some list of unfortunate recipients at this point, thanks to the original breach.
