There’s no denying that the moment Keanu Reeves went off his script last night in the Microsoft conference it became another infamous E3 moment. It’s easily the highlight of the show this year, so far. His genuine sincerity came through when he stopped saying what needed to be said to reply to a comment in the crowd.
While describing the world of Cyberpunk 2077, Keanu Reeves mentioned the word ‘breathtaking’. Someone in the crowd in turn said ‘You’re breathtaking!’, whereby Keanu said ‘You’re breathtaking’, while pointing at him… and then said everyone in the crowd is breathtaking. The ‘breathtaking’ word went viral and the rest is history. CD Projekt Red discovered who the guy was when he Tweeted his recording on Twitter.
In turn CD Projekt replied with this:
It’s a feel good story all round. Except that we won’t walk away with a CE.. even though we think he’s breathtaking too.
