The Keanu Reeves Walking Meme Is Just What We Need

The Keanu Reeves Walking Meme Is Just What We Need So, what has internet culture clung to from 'Always Be My Maybe'?

From there, making a meme is almost too easy, and so Twitter has taken to creating a whole bunch of “Keanu Reeves walking” videos. There’s even a specific Twitter account that was created to just to share the memes. We had to take part in the fun. Keanu Reeves walking to a surprise pic.twitter.

She had no cell phone (that was before most people had cell phones) and no way to call for help. Then a nice black Porsche pulls over and as you can guess, it was Keanu . I was pretty stunned, because Keanu Reeves doesn't have to wait in line for anything in LA if he doesn't want to, but he stood out

We like Keanu , but what about the people who have worked with him ? It seems we all agree that he is a unique person. I hope you enjoy watching this little

Reeves also had high praise for the team behind Toy Story 4, in which he plays a daredevil, motorcycle-obsessed toy called Duke Caboom.

“I just kind of got inspired,” Reeves said when asked if he really did jump onto a table at Pixar when learning about the character.

“The character’s so full of life,” he added. “He’s a showman, he’s a daredevil. So when he’s on the bike, I was just — like, he keeps doing poses, you know, and he can’t stop. They put it into the film, so it was nice.”

While Reeves said his on-screen, toy persona “looks absolutely not like me, at all,” he did say that some of his physicality made it into the character.

“They took some of the physicality that I was talking about for the character, and doing the poses,” he added. “I think it’s really remarkable how Pixar and the directors kind of do the physical comedy, the emotion, and so for me I was rally happy with what they did with Duke Caboom.”

But Reeves’ character isn’t all silly poses and daredevil antics. Without giving away spoilers, Reeves said that there’s something that happens in the movie to give Duke some “regret.”

“I can’t do all of the things that the commercial says, so he’s disappointed. And so I kind of let my kid down, and so I’m carrying that regret,” he said. “Part of the journey for my character is that I get to, I don’t know, be heroic, maybe.”
