Midday Madness: Official Ojai Valley Taxidermy TV Commercial - Charles A. "Chuck" Testa is an American taxidermist and owner of Ojai Valley Taxidermy in California. A commercial for Testa's business created by Rhett and Link for the show Commercial Kings became a viral video, and the catchphrase "Nope, Chuck Testa!" became an internet meme.

In summer 2011, Testa's future son-in-law posted a commercial for Testa's business on YouTube. The video was originally created by Rhett McLaughlin and Lincoln "Link" Neal for the show Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings on the Independent Film Channel. The commercial asserts that Testa's work is so realistic that people will assume the animals are still alive. It depicts people reacting to what they believe are live animals in unusual situations, only to have Testa appear and declare "Nope, it's just Chuck Testa!" The phrase became popular on websites, including Reddit and Tumblr, spurring mainstream media coverage, including Fox News and CBS.
