Crushable Quotable: James Van Der Beek On Internet Immortality

Crushable Quotable: James Van Der Beek On Internet Immortality

James Van Der Beek: he is just a normal dude! With last week’s introduction to Funny or Die’s Van Der Meme videos (and subsequent website), James was able to take a not-even-that-popular Internet meme about himself and turn it into a viral hit. He’s the antithesis of Keanu Reeves, who refused to even acknowledge that Sad Keanu existed, or Winona Ryder, who doesn’t even have the Internet unless someone sends her to a world wide webpage.

Has James Van Der Beek Won The Internet With Vandermemes?

Has James Van Der Beek Won The Internet With Vandermemes?

The Internet is wonderful. Back in the day, if you were a washed-up television actor, the most you could look forward to in your career was greeting people in a Vegas casino. But as Wil Wheton proved when the web was invented, everyone can have a 2nd life on the ‘net.

Which brings us to Vandermemes: James Van Der Beek‘s new site that pokes fun at…well…James Van Der Beek. See, there was this gif of James crying on Dawson Creek that was circulating the blogosphere for awhile, and instead of pretending that it didn’t exist (like Keanu Reeves did for the Sad Keanu meme), James has embraced his Internet revival with a Funny or Die video and a new Tumblr called Vandermemes. We picked a couple of our favorite Gifs, just for you! More »

Crushable Commenter of the Week: Inkhuldra Defends Keanu's Honor

When we expressed surprise over Keanu Reeves unexpected eloquence during his Vulture interview (in which he used terms such as re-contextualize and conceptualize), we thought we were paying the sad actor a compliment! Apparently not: there is a strong community of “Save Keanu” fans that believe the Bill and Ted thespian should be allowed into Mensa. We’re wary of urls sent in our comment sections, but congratulations to user Inkhuldra for introducing us to WhoaIsNotMe.Net, which has provided us with minutes of entertainment. More »

Crushable Quotable: Keanu Reeves Unaware Of Sad Keanu

We’re not sure if we buy into this Vulture interview with Keanu Reeves, where the actor claims to have no knowledge about his recent meme status as “Sad Keanu.” After all, ever since the first pictures appeared earlier this summer, Keanu seems to be purposely posing with maximum melancholy, even when say, he’s eating a cupcake. Then again, we didn’t expect Keanu Reeves to know such 50-cent words. More »

Sweet Repeat: Happy Keanu

Sweet Repeat: Happy Keanu

Poor Keanu Reeves (or as my dad for some inexplicable reason says it, “Key-nu“): The most amount of press he’s getting these days is his recent memehood of sadness, where people post shots of the actor moping around, head in hands, and titling the pictures “Sad Keanu.” But seeing as how little we actually know of this actor’s life, he could just as easily be a very happy Keanu. The evidence goes either way, really. Just look! More »
