After the success of John Wick: Chapter 3 and ever since the recent announcement of Cyberpunk 2077, a role-playing videogame that millions of players had been speculating about for years, the name Keanu Reeves has been in everyone’s mouth.

The Canadian-American actor and musician, who is famous for his roles as Ted Logan and John Wick, is now going to be in this game, as announced at E3 this Sunday. Players will get to interact with Keanu in this game as an anarchist, and people are psyched. Even though they are not certain about what character he will play, they’ve already pre-ordered the game. Invented by the makers of Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, the game has been in the making for nearly a decade and comes out in April 2020.

At E3, a fan yelled the words “you’re breathtaking!” at Keanu, when he took the chance to say it right back and melt the hearts of everyone in the crowd.

People are beyond excited about this ‘Reeves Rennaissance’ – aka, the”Keanussance”- and the internet seems to be struck by a bolt of creativity yet again as they all join together to make jokes in a particular trend. It all started a bit like this, with some clever wordplay:
keanu reeves as a gardener: keanu leaves

And soon, a fire was sparked.
– fathers a child: Keanu Conceives
– lies: Keanu Deceives
– admits defeat: Keanu Concedes
– puts on underwear: Keanu Briefs
– visits the arboretum: Keanu Trees
– in winter: Keanu Freeze
– makes macaroni: Keanu Cheese
– tells a bad joke: Keanu, please!
