This story is really merging two of my loves together: Keanu Reeves and video games. I was and still am that gay who loves a video game and always plays as the girl character. So here I am with the chance to write about the Eternal Prince of Goodness and Non-Problematicness attending the E3 expo–which if you’re a nerd you know is a big deal. It’s big business and Keanu was there as part of the Cyberpunk 2077 presentation (my nerdgasm is strong with this story) and while he was on stage to tell us nerds about how excited we should be to play a game where we can live out our fantasies in a futuristic cyber-punk universe, he got heckled for being his charming wonderful self and of course the moment went viral.
LADBible reports that Keanu was up on stage at the 2019 E3 Expo in Los Angeles for the Cyberpunk 2077 presentation. The game is an open-world first-person role-playing game (meaning you can go lots of places freely while looking through the eyes of your character who you get to edit a lot–see I have some knowledge) and Keanu is going to be playing a character in it.
While talking about how breathtaking the game is, someone decided to shout the truth to Mr. Reeves. “You’re breathtaking!” it triggered a love fest of which Keanu Reeves probably is used to because he just has this effect on people wherever he goes:

The guy who did it, a video game YouTuber (my parents fucked me by making me do a traditional education in Public Relations, you know what I mean?) named Peter Sark, captured the moment as well:

The rest of the audience loved it:

And Peter not only got himself a new nickname he also got himself a free game:

Keanu Reeves calling you breathtaking and a gaming company is sliding into your DMs to give you free things? This should be my life! That should be me heckling Keanu Reeves at E3! I just want to follow Keanu Reeves around and listen to his wisdom and get stranded in some remote suburb and then go on a long road trip and then viciously defend myself from an army of trained murderers. You know?
And if you want to check out Keanu in Cyberpunk 2077, here’s the trailer, he comes in at the end:
