Cheer Up Keanu Reeves Day - Newest Internet Sensation

by NATASHA STORER · June 9, 2010

The new work wasting phenomenon has hit the on-line community. When a bah-humbug expresssioned photo of Keanu Reeves sadly eating a danish on a park bench emerged, some Internet whiz kid decided it was time to super impose Keanu's image on alternative backgrounds - and now you can do the same!


In all fairness, despite his fame and fortune, Keanu has had a particularly bad run: his girlfriend gave birth to a stillborn and then later died at age 28 in a car crash herself, he was sued by paparazzi, his father abandoned him, his sister has leukemia, his best friend died of a drug overdose and as a child he was expelled from school and suffered from dyslexia.

Therefore, if you want to aide the growing movement, there is an innaugral Cheer Up Keanu Day on June 15, which even has it's own Facebook page you can join.

While the concept is all in jest, it is nice to see the Facebook page urging those to send donations in aide of Leukemia and Cancer research.

To make your own Sad Keanu mash-up, he is cut out and ready for you!

Keanu shows the crazy-cat syndrome doesn't just affect the single ladies It's the depression global financial crisis, time to get glum: Even anima characters get the blues!

You'd be sad too if trying to negotiate peace talks : It's no fun when your Dad is "so fuckin' busy" all the time Life ain't like a box of chocolates, at all! : Glum in the Cuckoo's nest
