Cheer Up Keanu Reeves Day - Newest Internet Sensation
by Natasha Storer
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!
