Pedro Pascal and Nicolas Cage Meme

It’s one of the most popular reels circulating among Indians today, and for good reason. This delightful bit of humour tells the story of Nicholas Cage riding shotgun as Pedro Pascal drives down the California coast blaring Cass Elliot’s cheerful 70s hit “Make Your Own Kind Of Music.” As the music beats ever louder, Cage turns to glare menacingly at Pascal, who is giggling like a schoolboy just having fun. This meme perfectly captures the mix of emotions we can all relate to—the excitement of an adventure tempered by the uncertainty of the unknown.
