They had just one thing at their disposal: Jane Fonda Workout Tapes. Using their Japanese cassette recorder, they taped over Jane Fonda and put Gorbachov's message on top of hers.
They somehow got the Jane Fonda Workout Tapes smuggled past the security guards, and eventually the tapes reached the world media, where Gorbachovís message was played world wide.
On August 21, 1991, the coup collapsed and Gorbachov regained power. Soon thereafter, Gorbachov voluntarily handed over power to Boris Yeltsin.
