What Is The 'Nicolas Cage Looking At Pedro Pascal' Meme?
The Nicolas Cage Looking at Pedro Pascal meme comes from the 2022 action comedy movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent starring Nicolas Cage as an exaggerated version of himself. In one scene from the movie, Pascal's character offers Cage a hit of LSD and the two go driving. Cage looks to Pascal with confusion as he smiles wide.
The scene was used for the first known time as a meme by TikToker @gh0uliasux in mid-February 2023. The meme, set to "Make Your Own Music," attaches the caption, "me telling my bf the same thing for the 20th time in the same day," labeling Cage "him" and Pascal "me." The video gained over 5 million views in under a month.
