Since the man bears an uncanny resemblance to Keanu Reeves, netizens wondered if it was the Hollywood action star himself. Even passersby mistook him for Keanu, praising him for being so humble despite being a Hollywood actor. Additionally, the man was seen riding a motorcycle and selling grilled cuttlefish on the sidewalk. Another video went viral of the man wearing a white shirt and slacks while washing dishes with other vendors on the roadside. The scene attracted passersby to stop and take photos with him. His attire made him look more like Keanu Reeves’ iconic character, John Wick, in the movie series of the same name.

Reports from local Thai media Thaiger and Thai PBS World claimed that many people speculated the man was Keanu Reeves’ stunt double and the famous actor himself is also in Thailand, filming a new movie. However, the speculation was quickly contradicted by netizens who updated reports that Keanu Reeves is currently in the United States working with his band, Dogstar, and has cut his hair short after filming the John Wick sequel.

“Thai PBS World” later revealed that the TikTok account sharing videos of the Keanu Reeves lookalike belonged to the man’s wife, a native of Thailand. The man is (actually) a German citizen. The wife convinced the man to act naturally in the videos as though he was (really) Keanu Reeves. However, it was his idea to sell grilled cuttlefish, make coffee, and do other activities for a more humbling look. The wife also revealed they were originally from Germany but have settled in Thailand.
