King Proximus Caesar's "What A Wonderful Day" refers to a memorable quote by the villain Proximus Caesar in the 2024 science fiction film Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes. The line is a response to the 2011 Caesar mantra "Apes Together Strong" from the Rise of the Planet of the Apes, being used now as a way to control other apes. In May 2024, a TikTok fan edit showing the moment in which the catchphrase appears in the film later became the subject of parodies and comedic skit videos of people pretending to be Proximus Caesar's followers chanting the mantra.


On April 25th, 2024, 20th Century Studios[1] posted the "What A Wonderful Day" clip from the 2024 science fiction film Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, which was released on May 10th. The scene (shown below) sees thousands of CGI apes gather in the shadow of a rusted ship while they hear a speech by King Proximus Caesar, who asks the crowd, “Are we grateful for the words of Caesar? Do we bend our heads? Do we say his words?” In response to the mantra, Proximus screams, "What a wonderful day." The video amassed more than 1.6 million views and 26,000 likes in two months.


After the Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes official theater release on May 10th, 2024, King Proximus Caesar's "What a Wonderful Day" scene was popularized on TikTok as a viral fan edit and TikTok sound.
