Before John Wick, Keanu Reeves Did Bizarre Teddy Bear Commercial That’s Going Viral 29 Years Later: “I was in for a lot of craziness”

Keanu Reeves is one of the most well-recognized actors in Hollywood during current times. Not only is he incredibly versatile, but he is also on the path to becoming one of the most iconic action heroes, or anti-heroes in his case, of all time. His work in the John Wick franchise, The Matrix franchise, Speed, and Constantine can be credited to his success as an actor and all the fame he has acquired.

Many actors are forced to do smaller jobs at the start of their careers, and Reeves was no different in this. What is quite interesting, however, is the fact that one of his early works is going viral due to its bizarreness.

Keanu Reeves Was In A Teddy Bare Commercial

Around the 1980s, Keanu Reeves worked with CBC where he worked as a correspondent and co-host during its third season. In 1984, Reeves reported on the first-ever Canadian International Teddy Bear Convention in celebration of National Teddy Bear Day celebrated in Canada. The video of Reeves reporting this convention is quite adorable for fans of the actor.

“When I was sent to check out the first Canadian International Teddy Bear Convention, I thought I was in for a lot of craziness. But then I met thirteen-year-old Graham Abby and his 53 bears and discovered there’s a serious side to collecting teddy bears,” stated Reeves near the opening of the video.

The video is quite humorous, with the John Wick actor asking seasoned collectors what all the bears have their first name as Teddy and even acting like he was being attacked by the bears. He ended the commercial by joking to the camera that if the bear fits, one should wear it. The entire video is quite nostalgic and made fans of the actor view him in a completely new light.

I wonder how they found this? Did somebody watch the The Matrix and say “Hey isn’t that the guy from that 1984 Canadian teddy bear report? Good thing I recorded it because I love teddy bears”

Many were stunned at where the actor started off, in a small-time commercial, and where he is now, as the protagonist in one of the most famous action franchises. Some were even questioning how this footage was found, wondering who recognized the actor in The Matrix from a 1986 commercial, even going as far as to call the actor a teddy bear himself, with how kind and compassionate he is.
