Keanu Reeves Meets His 'Sad Keanu' Meme

Keanu Reeves met his match -- well, an extremely miniature match -- at the recent junket for his new indie movie Generation Um… when ETonline handed him a rare "Sad Keanu" meme figurine.
"What's this?! Oh my god," proclaimed an amused Keanu after he was handed his micro-doppelganger. He then proceeded to get a little goofy and play with it on the back of his chair: "You know, like when you do those things -- 'Heyyy! I'm in Paris! Heeyyyy, I'm falling down.'"
Keanu's Generation Um... director Mark Mann had a chuckle over it, and his co-stars, Bojana Novakovic and Adelaide Clemens, were practically awestruck at the sight of the figurine.
"Are you kidding me?" said Adelaide, "That's hilarious," while Bojana cradled the little Sad Keanu and triumphantly laughed, "Finally, I have him in the palm of my hand. I had to say that."
Available on VOD and in select New York and L.A. theaters on Friday, Generation Um… follows a sometimes haunting, sometimes chaotic day in the life of three lost souls in New York City: Violet (played by Bojana), an over-the-top entertainer and exhibitionist with a short attention span and a thick skin; Mia (played by Adelaide), a fresh-faced girl with a tormented past; and John (played by Keanu), quiet and withdrawn, whose birthday is a difficult reminder of his failures in life.
Before we break out the Sad Keanu in the video, watch to see the stars respond to what generation they believe they do or do not belong in...
