Kevin Spacey's surreal downward spiral has been, I think, the most "2018" event in 2018.

His fall from grace has an element of everything that has defined this past 12 months: #MeToo, Netflix, a mad YouTube video, a court date and a surprising lack of self-awareness.

What the hell happened? Spacey used to be so cool, really cool, back when he did killer impression and play charismatic anti-heroes. I wanted to go watch a movie solely because Spacey was starring when he was Frank Underwood.

And when he played Frank in house of cards, he really dropped into the true, growing sense of mistrust, directed at our political institutions, and performed the sweden story that we suspected happened behind the curtain. & Nbsp;

The choice of the kind killed that show – it was a great political drama, but it was not a precise reflection of President Donald Trump and his bizarre policies. But Spacey was soaring together anyway, to star in Ridley Scott's All the money in the world.

To first The charge of sexual assault came together and completely tracked Spacey, with the prosecutor claiming he was fourteen years old at the time of the alleged assault. Spacey decided that the best way to defend himself was come out as a homosexual, who may have worked in the increased reality of the Netflix drama, but actually triggered a million memes mocking his ridiculous "defense".

The flood off accusations That followed, many went back decades, seemed to confirm the worst. The #MeToo movement continues to reveal the immense amount of sexual misconception in Hollywood, and Spacey appears to be one of the most rotten apples in a lush orchard.

Spacey was kicked off house of cards, and in an unmatched move, even edited out of All the money in the world, replaced by the wonderful Christopher Plummer, who, to our knowledge, is a very good apple.

Spacey disappeared for a bit, just making headlines when, oddly enough, his house of cards co-star Robin Wright seemed to guarantee him an interview, make vague statements about "other chances." The audience did not seem to be included with the idea, and the story faded into the colorful media technique of 2018.

The sixth season off house of cards arrived, now heading for Wright, who tried his best to save a scary script but could not stop the show from sinking to irrelevance.

Spacey (presumably) observed the light reaction to the new season, expecting that the only way he could slip back into our hearts was through the show, depending on the public's occasional inability to distinguish an iconic character from the actor playing them.

Thus, Spacey filmed the most embarrassing, tasteless, incredible YouTube video of the year, the same year that Logan Paul filmed the body of a suicide victim while he laughs. In the video that you really should have watched Spacy now directly addresses the camera that Frank Underwood used to have, accented and all, and orders the public to forgive him, never break the character and not to subtly refer to his real accusations through Frank's fictional misdeeds.

It's amazing. It's as if Kevin Spacey is secretly a brilliant concept artist who just created the ultimate piece of ironic, post-modern commentary on today's society, except that he didn't.

He just asked for forgiveness while wondering to be a fictitious antihero, hoping we all just wanted to applaud as morons and start asking for Netflix to allow him back on the show. I think it may have been my favorite moment of the year, or at least in the top three.

A new sexual assault was filed hours later, and Spacey is now hiding from the tabloid paparazzi during scarves stroke, like Sean Spicer in the bushes.

Obviously, the video didn't have the effect Spacey thought it would. There is a discussion of what Spacey intentions were, but I think it's pretty clear from the video that he just wanted to go back to the show and assumed his real redemption would follow.

Perhaps Spacey has spent too much time in La La Land, and really thought he could make a compelling speech that would be followed by standing ovations, wiping his dirty slate in a single scene, like a lovable villain from a 90's comedy.

Well, the video has been watched over 8 million times, and even the famous YouTube commentators don't know what to say. We'll see what the next twist of Kevin Spacey's life with greater life than life is going to be in 2019, but surely it can't get any weirder than this. Right? & Nbsp;

But it's not just Spacey; celebrities, pop culture and the actual reality have taken care of the absurdity of the last couple of years, and there has been no sign of a return to "normalcy". Whatever it was.

Here is a single stranger 2019; I have a feeling that things will be very nice.
