Step aside, Meryl Streep! The internet has uncovered an Oscar-worthy performance and it’s so good, we just had to share.

Japanese politician Ryutaro Nonomura has been accused of embezzling thousands of dollars in public funds and when he held a press conference to defend himself, Nonomura launched into a hysterical rant that quickly went viral on YouTube.

He sobbed uncontrollably in a room full of reporters in one of the most bizarre outbursts we’ve ever witnessed.

“I finally became an assembly member … with the sole purpose of changing society … This Japan … I want to change this society … I have staked my life … Don’t you understand?” he wailed.

Real talk: it’s hard to believe these sounds are coming from an actual human! Watch the whole ugly cry below:
