Christmas Eve 1998: Nakatomi Plaza, Never Forget

I’ll let the photo above speak for itself.  Tonight, 27 years ago terrorists took over the Nakatomi building in Century City California.  Their target, $640 million in negotiable bearer bonds.  That’s amazing, even the amount of money stolen still holds up today, it’s not some piss poor $100,000 or similar, it’s well over half a billion dollars.  Damn Hans, you really did know how to pull it off.

It's Not Really Christmas until Hans Gruber Falls off the Nakatomi Tower

As is Christmas Tradition, it isn’t really Christmas until you’ve watched this documentary, just like every 4th of July you must watch Independence Day, every year, around Christmas time, you must watch the hero cop from New York City single handedly stop a hostile take over.

To commerate this memorable event, there is even a music video.  Because John McClane has also been involved in multiple similar instances.
