Twitter Melts Down Over Viral Photo of Nicholas Cage in Kazakhstan


Kazakhstan doesn’t make the news much. There was Borat … and really that’s about it.

That, however, was before Nicholas Cage.

The star of such classics as Con Air, Face/Off and numerous National Treasures was in the capital city of Astana Sunday for 13th Eurasia International Film Festival, the country’s Astana Times reported. While there, Cage posed for a photo with First Lady Sara Nazarbayeva. Bedecked in traditional Kazakh garb in a strange place the photo took on a life of it’s own Sunday, racing across the Internet.

Twitter users were abuzz trying to make sense of the image and just what exactly Cage was doing with his life.

User @fabrice_deprez appears to have got the ball rolling.

And from there it took on a life of its own.
