A man impersonating Keanu Reeves effectively bamboozled a few Trump-supporting motorcycle enthusiasts last week and his efforts have become a viral sensation. Attending a car, truck, and motorcycle show in Maryland, it appeared that the man was indeed attempting to pose as Reeves and at least one person really did think he was the actor, Popculture reports.
The motorcycle enthusiast, wearing a Confederate flag sweatshirt, posed beside the faux Reeves, who posed with some pro-Trump paraphernalia.
“Maryland bike show this past weekend with Keanu,” enthused one attendee on Facebook. “Apparently he restores antique bikes and is a Trump supporter!”
In the post below, the Reeves imposter wears jeans and a black jacket, while the man he tricked is wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with the Confederate flag.
It can be argued that the imposter resembles Reeves…from a distance, including the actor’s famously intense gaze, but up close one can easily see this is not him. And the post might have wound up in the dustbin of internet history but it caught the attention of social media users who took screenshots. Those screenshots made their way to Twitter, where users gleefully cracked jokes about the imposter and the man he fooled.
Cue the Twitterati:
Is Keanu on Prednisone?
