Keanu Reeves is truly one of Canada’s greatest accomplishments. Not only is he an immortal Roman king but he’s also an amazingly nice person. So it’s not shocking to hear that after getting stranded somewhere in California recently, Keanu turned a shitty detour into an amazing scenic exploration of the wondrously, beautiful realm known as Bakersfield, California.
Vulture reports that Keanu was on his way to Los Angeles when a mechanical issue on the plane rerouted his flight from San Fransisco to Bakersfield for an emergency landing. Everyone was okay, but Keanu and all the passengers on the plane were stranded. Being a super rich and famous person you’d think Keanu would just call up a private jet or helicopter company and be on his merry way. But Keanu Reeves is not that kind of girl.
Upon learning that their bags could not be taken off the plane because it would be three hours until baggage handlers arrived to unload to broken plane, Keanu had an idea. He got all his fellow stranded passengers together to hit the road in a van and worry about their bags later. Keanu took the people on a magical tour of a city people fly through to get somewhere else.
One of Keanu’s fellow stranded passengers thankfully recorded some of his time of the road trip with the celebrity and it is gloriously polite including facts about Bakersfield no one cares about if Keanu Reeves isn’t the one saying them, and samples of Bakersfield music no one wants to listen to unless it’s coming from Keanu Reeve’s iPhone:

Hey everyone- There’s been a lot of attention about a recent story I posted about an “adventure“ on a minibus with one of the great humanitarians (and fav actors) of our time. I don’t have anything to add other than that all the passengers were incredibly kind and lovely people, including the folks who took care of us in Bakersfield, CA. Perhaps though, with all this attention we can do some good. In the spirit of what a generous person Mr. Reeves is here are a few charities that you might consider donating to. If you do have copies of the video (news outlets:), please attach links to these charities alongside them. Maybe we do a little good. ? I will post direct links in my stories so you can easily click to each of these. ????

And Keanu even stopped to pose for pictures:

Keanu is not only an ageless beauty and polite, but he can kill people with a pencil. And whenever he finds a naked mentally insane fan in his house, he just politely asks what they’re doing there before probably signing a John Wick poster for them and lending them an outfit for the trip home. Polite King Keanu Reeves!
