This sounds so absurd just reading this come to think of it...

Named after a meme within the entertainment industry based on the [[Film/DieHard movie of the same name]], starring Creator/BruceWillis. One of the most important action films of all time, if [[FollowTheLeader all the copycat ripoffs]] are any indication. An old story says that the HighConcept pitches for many action films basically went "[[XMeetsY Die Hard on/in a [=[location of the film]=]]]", until one day, someone tried to pitch a movie as "''Die Hard'' in an Office Building." Apparently, they [[CriticalResearchFailure were unaware]] that the original ''Die Hard '''did''''' take place in an office building.
