This video calls for no introduction. It is exactly what it sounds like. A 20-year-old, baby-faced Keanu Reeves as a field reporter interviewing a 13 year-old boy about his teddy bear collection, during the First International Canadian Teddy Bear Convention. Things stop being polite and start getting real at the 21 second mark, when Keanu decides to take the hard-hitting journalism route and make this a serious investigative piece.

For your viewing pleasure, I present to you your “Found Film Friday” for August 13th, 2009. From 1984, in what may be his on-screen debut, Keanu Reeves talks teddy bears with teenagers. This edition is dedicated to the lovely Kate Erbland, who discovered this diamond in the rough.

“Found Film Friday” is a weekly series inspired by the neat videos I sometimes come across in my frequent perusing of the Internets. Whether they be short films, fan-made movies, experimental films, music videos, comedic spoofs, cats playing Rush covers on a mini drum set, or anything else that does not fit into those categories, I enjoy the accessibility of interesting content the web provides in way of the moving image. And so, because I want to share these gems of video with you good people, I post a video of the week also known as “Found Film Friday.”

    I imagine that 13-year-old Graham was genuinely frightened.
