A Day With SpongeBob SquarePants
An arguably more well known Reagal movie, A Day With SpongeBob SquarePants: The Movie (Unauthorized Mockumentary), is an unreleased film originally slated to be released on November 22, 2011. According to Reagal founder Lorrenzo Holley the movie was out for a short period of time before deciding to retract it. After a sales listing for the film was put up on Amazon.com the movie gained the attention of members of the website 4chan who began searching for the film in August 2015. The website which would lead to information tries to install a Trojan Horse virus, however after using Internet Archive to get past the virus, it led no further information other than the info from the Amazon listing. The movie soon developed a minor amount of internet notoriety following members of the image board promoting the search for the unreleased film which spread to other websites such as Reddit and eventually culminated into the film gaining a cult following with videos about the movie getting over 250,000 views on YouTube and the search for the film has been written about by journalists from Gawker and the French language newspaper Le Monde.
The plot is as follows:
"In this mockumentary, SpongeBob lives above ground like all Hollywood superstars. Afraid that SpongeBob is becoming old news, his boss runs a contest called "Spend a Day with SpongeBob." The contest makes SpongeBob the talk of the town, as thousands of kids enter to win. The lucky winner is Seth, and he is ecstatic about his day with SpongeBob. However the day becomes a rollercoaster ride as things don't go quite the way they planned."
On the front cover the case says it is made by Inovisim Films, which is an alias used by Reagal.
