Of Course Nicolas Cage In Kazakh Attire Turned Into An Instant Meme

Nicolas Cage was pictured next to Kazakhstan's first lady Sara Nazarbayeva, wearing the country’s traditional attire, and the internet couldn’t handle it.

Nicolas Cage visited Kazakhstan to attend the 13th Eurasia International Film Festival held in the capital city of Astana. But that is not the highlight of his trip.

What drove the internet crazy was the Hollywood star's photo standing next to Kazakhstan’s first lady Sara Nazarbayeva in a traditional Kazakh coat and hat.

It’s not so hard to guess what happened next.

Instantly, this photo was transformed in to a meme.


More than the attire, what caught the social media user’s attention was his facial expression.




And then there were these memes…






They just wouldn’t stop.




Though the internet went into a global melt down after viewing Cage's picture, the Oscar-winning actor, who is being treated as a VIP guest the capital's international Expo 2017 Astana running June through September, said he would be happy to appear in a local film.

"I would be pleased to participate in some film project on the territory of Kazakhstan," he told journalists, news agency Kazinform reported.

"I enjoyed the architecture of your capital. What I saw reminded me of an old black-and-white film that depicted the future."
