Sad Keanu Interview On The BBC's Breakfast Show

"Hey there Keanu, it's about time someone said it: your picture makes us feel sad. God, I hope you read Reddit!"

Well, at least now we know Keanu reads Reddit, as good ol Susanna Reid and Charlie Stayt, of the BBC's Breakfast Show quizzed him on his Sad Keanu meme, made popular by the social bookmarking site last year.

Sad Keanu started out as a 'paperazoo' picture of the Matrix actor eating a sandwich and looking a bit glum on a bench in New York.

Since Sad Keanu we've had Tai Chi Keanu, Happy Keanu, Dancing Keanu and recently Holy Keanu. The man is Meme personified!

Filmed begging beside a road by the Columbus Dispatch on a ‘quiet news day’, Williams’s smooth voice soon thrust him into the spotlight, attracting interviews and job offers galore.

And the first brand to bag Ted was Kraft, who used his unique, honey-smooth vowels to beef up its rather drab Macaroni & Cheese commercial.

Eight-Year-Old Girl's Performance Inspires Mass Sing-Along At Ice Hockey Game

Don't you just hate it when you are eight, singing in public for the first time in front of a boisterous US sports crowd and your mic cuts out?

With almost 13,000 people staring at you, what do you? Cry and run away? Well, no one would blame you at the age of eight. I would probably do that, and I am in my thirties.

Or would you continue to sing the national anthem, like this brave, little girl does before an ice hockey game at the Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia.
