Today, I received a rejection e-mail from a potential employer I interviewed with. I asked for some feedback and they said I didn't seem interested. I had showed extensive interest, even brought up some of the company's recent events, and literally said, "I'm very interested in this position." FML

Or it was just an excuse because they couldn't say why or didn't know why they had rejected OP. It's basically impossible to prove wheter OP showed interest or not, which makes it a good excuse.

It's not really so much what you say but how you say it. Body language can show confidence, enthusiasm or indifference.

Either you really didn't seem that enthusiastic - maybe it was nerves, maybe you only said cliche phrases, maybe your definition of enthusiastic is different than theirs. Or, more likely, they interviewed a very high number of people and either just forgot who you were specifically (not that that's any better) or you just weren't the best candidate, but there was no specific reason. E.g. you were as good as someone else, but they had to choose someone on gut instinct and just had to give you a generic response. Don't think too much of it and keep applying
