banjowashisnameo: TIL MI6 employees are the same as every employee in the world
hunterhitler: It states that this happened at the screening of “World is not enough” not “Spectre”.
cosmoceratops: Your link says it was a different movie.
>A special premiere of The World Is Not Enough was held at Vauxhall Cross for MI6 staff, who cheered when their headquarters was destroyed in the film.
Hmroach17: I watched the movie “Signs” on an Army training post. As soon as the scene with Joaquin Phoenix in the army recruitment office started we all started screaming “No, don’t do it! Ahh, it’s too scary!” Etc. Like we had been rehearsing it for weeks. I have never before nor since experienced anything like it and I still don’t know half of what they said in that scene because of all the laughter.
Freds1765: Wasn’t the building blown up in Skyfall?
esteban_the_merciful: I happened to be in London on opening night of The World Is Not Enough in 1999 and managed to get tickets. People booed *loudly* when the BMW showed up on screen. They love their Aston Martins.
DrFriedGold: I was in a cinema in Stockport, UK watching ‘The Parole Officer’ when the fishmonger scene came up (which was filmed mere yards from the cinema) the audience cheered.
man_with_titties: I watched John Wayne’s “The Green Berets” on an army base, where I was taking a course with mostly special forces guys. Some of them were rolling in the aisle (literally). We thought it was a comedy. I’m sure actual American Green Berets would have a similar reaction.
CodeMonkey24: Almost every cubical farm employee secretly has a fantasy about seeing their office blown up.
MMaxs: Everyone wants to see there work place be blown up.
Almighty_Dew: OP’s reading comprehension is flawed.
>A special premiere of The World Is Not Enough was held at Vauxhall Cross for MI6 staff, who cheered when their headquarters was destroyed in the film. Filming for the twenty-fourth Bond film, Spectre, took place on the Thames near Vauxhall Cross in May 2015.
Wrong film, bro, and I’m the drunk one.
LaxIntastic: They’ve all been slowly replaced by double agents, and it was a unanimous slip-up
IEatAnyAss: Seriously thought Skyfall was the last Bond movie.
annamurphAY: I share Pierce Brosnan’s birthday and my grandmother’s maiden name is Bond. Swank please.
trebortus: I used to DJ at a fetish night across the river from this place til 6am once a month, it was a great night! Sometimes would go out and smoke a doink looking over at this building at 3-4am.
iEuphemia: I still don’t get how this isn’t a security threat, having everyone know that’s the MI6 building. Or are we Brits just that ballsy?
ordermeetschaos: TIL MI6 employees really need some extra vacation days
unDuckingBelievable: in their defense, it is a horribly ugly building
Onetap1: I bet they weren’t cheering when someone fired an anti-tank rocket at the building a few months later.
ThatOtherGuy_CA: It was actually at the screening of “the world is not enough” that this happened.
alistofthingsIhate: Skyfall I believe
4chieve: Alternative names: Legoland…. ?
annamurphAY: True story.
harry_lahore: everybody hates their job!
Theappunderground: I worked in gatlinburg at a hellhole timeshare resort and there was this guy who was a pastor before timeshare and he was screaming how if it burns down its a sign from god and we were all screaming and hooting and smokin bowls in the super dense hellish smoke and joking about it burning down.
Well it burnt completely to the fucking ground later that day.
Not as cool as you might think.
Portal2TheMoon: Re you saying that if your place of business was blown up you wouldnt at least crack a smile?
Qarthos: Sounds like my kind of friends.
TheCoolTwin: >~~special~~ –> Secret
thick1988: Sort of like how no one gives two shits when the White House or US Capitol get destroyed in X movie.
dr-cringe: The building was blown up in Skyfall
