Original YTMND:

Worthy spinoffs:

Reggie Fils-Aime is the president and COO of Nintendo of America. The fad, dubbed "The Reggielution", revolves around a quote said by Fils-Aime at E3 2004: "My name is Reggie; I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games". The fad began with REGGIE & THE REGGIELUTION, and didn't really catch on at first, as very few ytmnds were made about it.

The fad was revived at E3 2005 with the "Reggie dance", the first to feature this being The Reggie Dance, and this spawned many spinoff ytmnds. Also, a quote from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata (Who's your daddy?), first featured in Reggie, who your daddy? also helped the fad, and even spawned it's own fad, albeit much smaller. Also, some ytmnds crossed over the Reggielution with other ytmnd fads (among other things), such as What is Love!? and Secret Nazi. This was first seen in The many faces of Reggie. There is also a popular gif which features a crudely edited animated gif if Reggie eating several competing consoles, first seen in GO REGGIE GO!, but made popular with Reggie kicks ass while Iwata says WOW, which features the gif along with other Reggielution pics and quotes from E3 2005.

More recent ytmnds, such as Reggie Sings With AC/DC use quotes from E3 2006, such as "big damn truck", which is considered particularly humorous. Some ytmnds also feature crossovers with Sony's E3 2006 press conference, first appearing in Reggie and Kaz Team Up For Planet Sonata. The Reggielution has also crossed over with other ytmnd fads such as Batman and Cake Song.

For music, most Reggielution ytmnds use remixes of E3 quotes, intense opera music, sticking quotes in real songs (ala the many I believe you have my stapler songs), or standard ytmnd music.


  • My name is Reggie: Editing the quote from E3 2004, usually involoving him taking names or kicking ass.
  • A Big Damn Truck: Incorporating or referencing to his description of the game "Excite Truck" from E3 2006, in which he described the game as being in the same "pedigree" as ExciteBike except "now your holding the steering wheel of a big damn truck". It's sometimes paired with "Riiiidge Racer!"
