Overview

ReginaldChaos Meme Day Prank refers to a joke orchestrated by Reddit's /r/me_irl subreddit in which a user named ReginaldChaos asked the subreddit to make him a meme so that he could dress as himself for his high school's "meme day." The request led to multiple posts related to ReginaldChaos over the following several days, and the user successfully attending school as a meme himself.

Background

On February 10th, 2019, Redditor ReginaldChaos posted an image of himself with overlayed text asking /r/me_irl to make him a meme so that he could go to his school's Meme Day dressed as himself. The post gained over 88,000 points[1] (shown below).
