If you are in for some crazy ideas, you must check out the latest Keanu Reeves figurine which by now is quite popularly known as the “Sad Keanu”. The term appeared in the limelight after a picture went viral in which the Matrix star was seen alone on a bench, looking quite sullen. This was back in the year 2010 but the picture wasn’t forgotten as yet. This picture was taken away by the 3D printing marketplace Shapeways who put life into this “Sad Keanu”.
Now if you are feeling the blues, you will not be alone; grab the latest Keanu action figure and you will have someone to share your sorrows with. The figurine is available in two different sizes but both are equally sad. The Tenny Keanu is priced at $25 and the Little Keanu is for $45. The most interesting part is yet to come. Just when the “sad Keanu” sprang to life and it started gaining popularity, the Matrix start decided to play along. With some help from artist Alexandra Grant, Reeves has written his own comedy Ode to Happiness.
