Resurfaced footage of 20-year-old Keanu Reeves presenting teddy bear convention proves we don’t deserve him

Footage has resurfaced of Keanu Reeves presenting a teddy bear convention and, honestly, this is the reason the internet was invented. Get ready to watch the best video of your life:


As if we couldn't love Keanu anymore, turns out one of his early gigs was presenting a stuffed animal convention.

Yep, it's as cute as it sounds, with people going wild after the footage resurfaced of the 20-year-old Matrix star.

Keanu was doing the news report for Going Great magazine, which was broadcast by Canadian news network CBC in 1984, and starts the video by saying: "When Going Great asked me to check out the first Canadian International Teddy Bear Convention, I thought I was in for a lot of craziness."

But Keanu seemed to have a great time, with the iconic actor asking some hard-hitting questions, like 'Why are all the bears’ first name Teddy?' as he interviewed those that attended the convention.

Other stellar questions included: "What do your friends think about you collecting bears?".

At another point in the video, Keanu is wearing some killer shades as he tells his new furry friend: "We gotta go down to the bears-only cafe and talk about bears-ness. Listen, you know that bears-necessity contest? We've got problems, so listen, we'll go down, we'll talk business and hey, everything will be okay. I love this guy."

And when Keanu tells you, and a bear, that it's all going to be okay, you can't help but believe him.

Users on Reddit absolutely loved the clip and were quick to praise the actor.

One user said: "How have I never seen this? I wish there were more people like Keanu around. So genuine."

Another seconded that opinion, saying: "Not only one of the coolest guys in Hollywood, but just may be one of the nicest!! STILL have yet to read, or hear about a fan who has had even the SLIGHTEST negative thing to say about having met him!!"

A third added: "This is BRILLIANT! Thanks so much for sharing. Big fan of Keanu Reeves. One of the realest guys out there."

It's made my day, too. At one point he even starts play fighting a giant bear and if that isn't the wholesome content you need as the days get shorter, I don't know what is.
