If you've been on the internet at all this week, you know that people cannot get enough of actor Keanu Reeves.
Reeves, who recently appeared in a supporting role in Randall Park and Ali Wong's new Netflix rom-com, "Always Be My Maybe," and in a starring role in "John Wick: Chapter 3," is having a serious moment right now, and that, of course means he's become a meme.
In honor of the Keanu Reeves renaissance, we rounded up some of our favorites.
Reeves went viral for a scene in 'Always Be My Maybe'
Reeve's intro scene in the movie features a cool slow-motion stroll through a restaurant, which is set to the Awolnation track "Sail."
It didn't take long for the scene to inspire a new Twitter meme, led by an account called "Keanu Reeves Walking to Music." Proving just how perfect the clip is, fans are swapping out the original tune and replacing it with other, very different music choices.
Another viral meme was about Reeves not touching women in photos
It earned him the title of "respectful king."
Some people recalled the first time Reeves was a meme
Some made puns
Other memes were about wanting the actor to pursue political ambitions
And some people made his recent comments into their own memes
Some pointed out the differences between Reeves' characters and his real-life persona
And others were about his status as the newest 'internet boyfriend'
In short, the internet is having a serious Keanu moment
Reeves doesn't appear to use social media, but even he caught wind of his current internet fame. When asked about being the new big thing online, he called it "wacky" and even used it as a way to praise Wong and Park.
"I've been what?" he said. "That's wacky. The positivity is great. It's really special how 'John Wick' was embraced and working on 'Always Be My Maybe' [was] great. Ali Wong and Randall Park [are] just really wonderful artists and people, and it was really cool to get a chance to play with them."
