Keanu Reeves’ hilariously gentle takedown of a journalist went viral all over again
This fabulous moment when a journalist interviewing Keanu Reeves got just a little bit mixed up has gone viral all over again and it really is one for the ages.
It’s journalist Josh Horowitz asking the star about reprising his role in the third Bill and Ted film (which still hadn’t been made back when this interview took place in 2013).
Since John Wick is trending let’s just remember Keanu Reeves murdered someone on live TV.
Wait for it.

So much to enjoy in such a short clip.
Wow. He’s polite and kind even when murdering someone.

That was a mercy killing…

The only way Keanu kills someone: softly.

I like Josh Horowitz.
This was bad.
But if you're going to screw it up, screw it up in front of the one guy who'll kill you with the kindness of intentions.

It’s REALLY disconcerting to see Mr. Reeves be even a little bit mean or rude in real life as he’s by all accounts one of the kindest people on Earth.

hes not being rude, hes playing along in the embarrassment.

Final word to the man himself (Josh, not Keanu).
Hi Josh! I just assume everyone dwells on stuff the way I do. I still wake up thinking about stupid shit I said when I was 16 years old.

Oh totally. I just find it funny that this clip comes up every year randomly and folks think it’s the defining moment of my 15 years of doing this. I was the one who decided to run it because I thought it was funny. But all good! No one loves awkward moments more than me!
