WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: Nicolas Cage's Pretentious Babbling + Japanese TV Show = 8 Minutes I'll Never Get Back

Via Defamer, this extended clip of Nicolas Cage on the Japanese cooking/celebrity chat show SMAPxSMAP features just about all you could ever want: a spray-tanned Cage babbling about his "love" of Japanese culture, comic books and "beautiful girls", as well as some obligatory name-dropping vis-a-vis his celebrity relatives' trips to Japan, all intercut with shots of Japanese chefs preparing Ghost Rider-inspired food. But the creme de la creme doesn't actually come until there's only about a minute and 23 seconds left in the clip, when Cage speaks to one of the chefs who apparently makes a sarcastic comment about how well he knows Cage from his body of work -- and Nic takes the opportunity to spew some primo bullshit about actors and the people who watch them:
"That's the thing about actors: we make movies, and people see the movies, and I put my soul into the movies, and so in some way, you know, you know who I really am."
Truly, this is why God created YouTube.

Eww, I can't watch Nicolas Cage that long, and certainly not at that aspect ratio. ;-)

Thanks for watching it so I can read about it, instead!
