There's A New Nicolas Cage Meme That's Perfect For Awkward People

The human meme strikes again.

Posted on July 24, 2017, at 6:49 a.m. ET

Nicolas Cage is currently in Astana, Kazakhstan, to attend the 13th Eurasia International Film Festival.

While there, according to local news site Kazinform, he is taking part in a number of activities, such as a city tour, tree planting, and selfies with locals.

On Sunday, Cage was photographed in traditional Kazakh dress at an event with the film festival's president Aiman Mussakhajayeva.

Naturally, people loved the photo.

This picture of Nicholas Cage in Kazakhstan pretty much made my day.

And then it became a meme.

Nicholas Cage in Kazakhstan in our traditional attire lmao

I kinda feel like all of America is Nicholas Cage in this photo. How did we get here? What is all this Russia shit…

Can Nicolas Cage go anywhere without becoming a meme?

Unbeknownst to all of us, Nic Cage is living in the darkest of dark timelines

Nic Cage in Kazakhstan added to the photo of "People who don't know WTH they're doing there".

Even people on Russian website VK joined in.

The photo is literally art.

With his new meme, Cage joins Steven Seagal and Francois Hollande on the list of visitors to Central Asia who have had their photo opportunities turned into unfortunate memes.

Who wore it better (and looked more awkward doing it)?

Never forget.



The woman stood next to cage in the viral photo is Aiman Mussakhajayeva. An earlier version of this post misstated her identity.
