It’s Rex Manning Day! A Twitter trend, explained


Every year, when April 8th rolls around, you may see a series of memes proclaiming the day as Rex Manning Day.

But who and what is Rex Manning Day, you ask?

Rex Manning is a character in the ’90’s cult movie Empire Records, a film that takes place over the course of one day at a small-town record store, the day that washed-up rock star Rex Manning (played by Grease 2‘s Maxwell Caulfield) is scheduled to sign autographs in the store.

The employees call it Rex Manning Day.

The film also features a music video called “Say No More, Mon Amour” by the fictional musician.
