Is the action film “Die Hard” a Christmas movie? Though there are some "Yippee Ki Yay" naysayers, from film critics to Christmas traditionalists, there’s a case to be made that it is.

The film's explosions, terrorists and gunfire aside, it does take place on Christmas Eve and Bruce Willis’s hero cop wants nothing more than to bring his family together for the holidays. There are even Santa jokes, and the movie cranks up the volume on one of the best Christmas songs thanks to Run-DMC.

Now, a die hard “Die Hard” fan has spun this into an unauthorized parody titled “Yippee Ki Yay.” In time for some unconventional holiday fun, The Huntington is bringing it to Boston. GBH executive arts editor Jared Bowen talks to the actor leading this one-man show, Darrel Bailey.

From there, Alyssa Mikiko DiPasquale, the founder of the Koji Club, Boston’s first sake bar, joins the show to reframe sake. It's not just for sushi, it actually pairs perfectly with your Christmas fare. DiPasquale walks hosts Jared Bowen, Callie Crossley and Edgar B. Herwick III through three options that are now available at the Koji Club.

It's all on The Culture Show — listen to the full episode above.
