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.
The bad news is, it’s Monday. The good news is, it’s Rex Manning day. The other bit of bad news is that you’re likely too young to even know what that is. pic.twitter.com/RaeDDcOdfk— Pace University (@PaceUniversity) April 8, 2019
