Nicolas Cage Loves Pachinko

American film stars like to do commercials in Japan. The pay is fantastic and, hey, it's not like their fans back in the U.S. will ever see the things, right?

I don't understand it either, but the Japanese are freaking nuts about it. Click on the jump for another bizarre commerical by Cage from the same series. -- Cory Casciato
