If you’re looking for a gift that you and the Nicolas Cage fan in your life won’t be able to stop laughing about, this is it. It’s not easy to come by a Cage-themed surprise Christmas gift (we’d imagine?), but considering this pillow is bright red and covered in sequins — when it’s not displaying the actor’s face — it makes it the perfect incognito present.
That’s right: This is one of those sequined pillows that looks different depending on which way you brush the sequins. They look a little something like this Shimmer Pillow, as seen from the commercial for the product on YouTube:
But in the case of this very special pillow, if the sequins are facing one way, the pillow looks all shiny and red. Brush the sequins the other way, and you reveal Cage’s face.
Yes, yes indeed. It’s the thing you never knew you needed to see:
And it’s available on Amazon right now. Lucky you?
It’s $27.95 if you buy the cover on its own, but for only $28.95 it comes with a pillow, meaning you’re all-in for less than 30 bucks when you purchase this for yourself or a friend. Although, we’d argue that this kind of gift is priceless.
Surprisingly, there are quite a few versions of Cage-themed sequined pillows up for grabs on Amazon.
For instance, if a single photo of the actor on a pillow isn’t quite good enough, Amazon also has a pillow full of Cage heads:
Going for an added dose of cheer with this gift? This version that showcases Cage saying “It’s Christmas” should do the trick:
Just like the first, these pillow covers won’t even cost you $30. They’re available for $29.95 and $28.95, respectively.
And based on the reviews, you won’t be disappointed with this purchase.
One happy customer pointed out that this makes for a hilarious gift.
“This gets many laughs as it was a gag gift for a buddy,” one reviewer wrote on Amazon. “Just the right amount of ‘this creeps me out, dude.'”
Another reviewer even cautioned that this might just be a gift you want to keep for yourself.
“This is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen. However, my teenage daughter and her friends thought it was amazing. We bought it to give as a gift, but [my daughter] almost kept it for herself.”
It seems it’s hard to resist a pillow with Cage’s face on it. So even if you go in as a skeptic, you may come out as a proud sequined-pillow owner. Consider yourself warned!
