Rankin-Bass’ Die Hard



Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, trapped in Nakatomi Tower.
And if you ever saw him, you’d think he wouldn’t have much power.
All of the other sequels, weren’t a guarantee just yet.
He’s a moonlighting stranger, an action guy? You wouldn’t bet.

Then one kick-ass Christmas eve, Gruber came to say:
“Rudolph with your nose so red, it’s so hard to kill you dead.”

Then how he yippie-kai-yayed
Tore the gun from off his back
Rudolph the action hero
Saved the day and grew a sack!

Here, thanks to Film Geekery, is the Die Hard trailer remade entirely with Rankin-Bass scenes and Rudolph in the lead. Enjoy…
