For anyone working in SoHo back in 2010, Keanu Reeves was a fixture in the neighborhood. He was cutting a film in my office building and could often be spotted outside on a park bench looking kinda blue. After paparazzi snapped a photo of him moping over a brown bag lunch, it became a bit of a running joke in NYC – “Why is Keanu so sad?” And because New Yorkers are callous, unfeeling cynics, we gave it its own internet meme. I hate to say that even I found photoshopped pics of Sad Keanu surrounded by cats pretty funny.
Yet just when you thought the meme had died out, NYC-based designer Neuralfirings created a Sad Keanu figurine. Buy this for next year’s White Elephant party NOW. SEE THE ORIGINAL SAD KEANU PHOTO AFTER THE JUMP!
