Becoming the Man in Black

At the beginning of the clip, Johnny Cash walks into a music studio and sings a gospel song for a record agent that falls flat.  The two have an argument, where Cash is challenged to sing something “real.”

It’s the moment where Johnny Cash transubstantiated into the “Man in Black.”

Watch this clip,

Walk the Line

How does this moment relate to transubstantiation?

How would you have responded to the producer’s confrontation (i.e. what “real” thing would you offer as your last words)?

Have you had such a moment in your life?
