What Happened to Nicolas Cage's eBay Vampire Photo? Let's Go to the Animated Videotape
The Web experienced one of those slow-news-week stirrings last weekend when a seller on eBay put up incontrovertible photographic evidence (ahem) of Nicolas Cage chilling for a portrait back around the time of the Civil War. Cage is undead, the argument (AHEM) went, and so what better way to capitalize on this bracing phenomenological development than to unload the 19th-century artifact to the highest bidder? Anyway, that auction came and went, but not without the definitive, deeply necessary 60-second animated recap you were praying for.
"Nic Cage is one of the undead, because try as he might, his career not be killed," quips the latest contribution from Taiwanese sim-news gadflies Next Media Animation. In brief: The doppelganger photo has since been pulled from eBay, and Cage is riding this wave of batshit publicity all the way to Trespass's opening day on Oct. 14. It'll do, I suppose.
