The Oscar winner headed to the 13th Annual Eurasia International Festival in Kazakhstan on Sunday, where he posed for photos with the nation's first lady, Sara Nazarbayeva.
The 53-year-old star -- who's currently rocking an impressive beard -- donned some traditional Kazakhstani garments -- including a fur-lined black robe with gold adornments and a very plush, brown fur hat -- and fans online absolutely freaked out over how amazingly surreal the moment truly was.
Cage has always delivered larger-than-life performances in films that see him doing insane things -- like stealing the U.S. Constitution in National Treasure, or investigating a magical island full of murderous witches in The Wicker Man, or kidnapping the President of the United States to prove his ancestor didn't kill Abraham Lincoln in National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
So, it's no surprise that many of the Cage in Kazakhstan memes joked about how the whole thing was just the plot of his next movie.
"Nicolas Cage is in Kazakhstan, he's trying not to look suspicious as he plans to steal their constitution," one twitter user wrote.
