WHOA

What will surely be a highlight of E3 2019 happened before the conference even opened to the public. On the Sunday before Day 1 of E3, movie star and pop culture icon Keanu Reeves was on stage to promote Cyberpunk 2077, an upcoming game for Xbox for which he did voice and motion capture work. During his appearance, YouTuber Peter Sark yelled, "You're breathtaking!" To which Keanu replied, "YOU'RE breathtaking! You're ALL breathtaking!" Twitter lost its mind, the video has since gone viral, and publisher CD Projekt gave Sark a free copy of Cyberpunk 2077. Breathtaking.
