Is there anything Keanu Reeves can’t do?
Besides kicking *ss in movies, raising money just with the sheer loveliness of his person and generally being a delight, Reeves apparently used to the work for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Back on Sept. 9 (National Teddy Bear Day, fittingly), the official CBC Twitter account shared a major throwback video featuring none other than their most famous alum.
In the clip, which aired as part of the network’s kids news show "Going Great" around 1984, a teenage Reeves goes behind the scenes at -- *checks notes* -- a teddy bear convention. At the first Canadian International Teddy Bear Convention, Reeves was responsible for getting interviews with participants and answering hard-hitting questions, such as the origin of every bear’s first name (Teddy, of course) and what their alma maters were (Paws Prep, for one).
Just watch and be amused.
Could this man be any more wholesome?
Nowadays, Reeves is busy playing a good-guy assassin in the "John Wick" franchise and reprising the role that put him on the scene with "Bill & Ted Face the Music," but, honestly, we need Reeves back in the newsroom -- but this time to report on actual bears. Because, think about it: We're seeing an abnormal amount of crazy bear videos as of late. Bears in people’s backyards, bears stealing snacks, bears everywhere except the forest, where they’re supposed to be.
Considering coming out of retirement, Keanu? There are plenty of bears waiting for their close-ups.
