A VIDEOGRAPHER created a hilarious desktop Christmas ornament by recreating a classic scene from Die Hard.

One image shows a large cardboard box that has been wrapped in aluminum foil and attached to the top of a wall near the roof.
Inside the makeshift air vent is a colorful print of McClane crawling through an air vent from the original movie which premiered in 1988.
The 33-year-old made the one-time display on Tuesday in a contest hosted by his office for better decoration.
Rob then posted a photo of his DIY creation on Twitter, writing, “Here are the finished office decorations. “
The post has now collected 32,700 likes with over 3,000 retweets.
