Some moments that are televised stay in the minds of people forever: things like the moon landing, the Kennedy assassination, and the OJ Simpson trial have made history by being broadcast across the nation. However, in the case of these 10 clips, we mostly remember just how awkward we felt watching them.
When Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat character sang "In My Country There Is A Problem."
When a reporter underestimated a flood.
When Ashlee Simpson got caught lip-syncing.
When a news anchor delivered one of the most savage burns in history.

When a reporter destroyed art made of Jenga blocks.

His classic stories like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach have been loved by children for decades. It doesn't matter if you're reading the book or watching one of the many movies based on one of his novels, because Dahl's ability to create these magical little worlds manages to transcend format and remain enjoyable no matter what.Dahl's characters are nothing short of iconic.

Watching Die Hard is like watching a little piece of history. It truly has remained one of the greatest movies of all time no matter how much time passes. Maybe we didn't know how special it was when we first saw it, but as the decades go on, it has become clear that it's a true classic that is basically required viewing for every single person.
