A United Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing in Bakersfield. And on that flight was Keanu Reeves, who ended up being the awesome dude you want to think he is. He and the passengers, after a very long wait, ended up taking a van to their destination, which I'm guessing is just up I5 to LA. And he entertained them by reading fun facts about Bakersfield.
I guess if you have to make an emergency landing, having Keanu on board would distract from the sheer terror of it all.
