About

Today Is Friday In California is an exploitable image macro taken from an episode of the live-action Super Sentai series Ninja Sentai Kakuranger. In late 2021 and early 2022, the scene became a source of redraws and fan art, as well as fan videos recreating the scene.

Origin

The scene originated from the 46th episode of the live-action Super Sentai series Ninja Sentai Kakuranger titled "The New Year's Manga Hell."[1] In the episode, the Kakuranger are trapped inside of a manga created by Mujina,[2] a tanuki Yokai. While trapped inside the manga, Saizou is attacked by a motorcycle-riding assassin and is carried away in an ambulance to a hospital. In the hospital's surgery room, Saizou suddenly awakes to more assassins dressed as surgeons wielding giant blades, as well as one dressed as a police officer who says "Today is Friday in California" in English. Saizou responds by saying "Huh!?" before the officer shouts "Shoot!" and fires a revolver. The shots miss their target, and Saizou runs away as the assassin chases after him.



On February 15th, 2021, a clip of the scene was posted to YouTube by Lewis M. The clip (shown below) received over 89,000 views in roughly a year.
