July 23, actor Nicolas Cage arrived in Kazakhstan at the opening of the film festival "Eurasia". There, a Hollywood star was dressed up in a fur hat and a national Kazakh costume, chapan, and as such he was photographed with People’s Artist of Kazakhstan Aiman Musakhodzhayeva. The picture was a reason for jokes and fotozhab, like many other appearances of Western celebrities in Russia and the CIS countries.
We collected six more such examples: with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Keanu Reeves, Steven Seagal, Gerard Depardieu and Kanye West.
In Astana, Cage spoke at the Five Continents Children's Film Festival, and began a welcoming speech in Kazakh. At the request of the host, the actor solemnly planted a tree.
Nicolas Cage offered to make a film about the arrival of Hollywood stars in Kazakhstan
The owner of "Oscar" and "Golden Globe" said that the country's directors could make a film about the arrival of Hollywood stars in Kazakhstan and he would have had success at the box office. He also recorded a video message to the residents of Kazakhstan, in which he praised the national cuisine, architecture of Astana and the friendliness of the city residents: “I have never met such a warm welcome, although I have visited many places. I will invite everyone I know to Kazakhstan. ”
The combination of the national costume and the perplexed look of Cage became a fertile topic for jokes in social networks.
When you try to remember with whom you booze last night
One of the main ideas was this: Kage is not returned a passport until he praises Kazakhstan.
The representative of PornHub in Russia Dmitry Kolodin published a converted poster of the film "The Martian".
The second reason to practice wit is kumys sour milk drink. Some have suggested that Cage was in Kazakhstan after drinking koumiss, while others simply photographed a bottle of drink with the actor.
Others joked thinner and put the American on a par with the Kazakh biys.
Americans were placed in the realities of the post-Soviet space: with carpets, five-story buildings and street markets.

In the video, an actor in –37 degrees dives into an ice-hole, soars in a bath and lies naked in the snow.
However, after the arrival of Nicolas Cage in Kazakhstan, social networks recalled Hardy's Russian photos - and at the same time Ben Affleck.
In early 2013, the French actor, known for his roles in the films “Unlucky” and the series “Asterix and Obelix”, decided to change his place of residence: in his home country they decided to impose a 75% tax on incomes of over a million euros a year.
