We all inherently know that sweet, sweet Keanu Reeves
belongs in the annals of history, but his recent appearance in a Ukrainian history textbook was decidedly unintentional - and is receiving a lot of attention on Twitter. According to the BBC, Twitter user @jigsawdeaad was perusing the textbook and spotted Sad Keanu in a famous photo of New York iron workers taking a break from building a skyscraper.
Though most people on Twitter shared the photo in the spirit of humor and because, well, Keanu, some people were not so pleased with the error. On Facebook, some people expressed their disappointment that publications are relying on quick Google searches to fill the educational tomes. While the publishing company claims the error came from one of their designers, the book's author, Ihor Schupak, came out to express that he'd been well aware of the blunder.
"When the designer who worked with me on the book's illustrations showed me that photo with Keanu Reeves, I didn't notice that small detail at first," he wrote on Facebook after the photoshopped photo was noticed and widely reported in Ukraine. "But when I understood the meme, I decided to keep it."
Whether or not that story is true, the whole thing is incredibly entertaining. And just more proof that Keanu Reeves is immortal.
