In Indonesia, most English communication still happens in classroom settings. It leads to ineffective English language learning for students. In order to be proficient in English, students need to have supplemental resources without depending only on the teachers in school. The utilization of social media can be very helpful in English language learning. In Indonesia, Mr. D is a well-known English teaching influencer with Instagram account and Youtube channel of gurukumrd. One of his Youtube contents is English meme reaction. The use of memes is quite new for English teaching in Indonesia. His videos teach English grammar clarity, word choices, and cultural opinion in a humorous way. This study analyzed code switching types used by Mr. D on the meme reaction video. The use of code switching in educational settings is a common thing. Wardhaugh’s theory was used to analyze the code switching types in the video. The types are divided into 2 (two), namely situational and metaphorical. The researcher used qualitative study based on content analysis. The results of the study showed that Mr. D used both types of code switching. The metaphorical (65%) is the dominant code switching type used by Mr. D, compared with the situation type (35%). The viewers showed positive attitudes (99%) towards the content through the comment box, making them more motivated to learn English. 1% showed a neutral attitude. In addition, the meme reaction could be a reference for English teachers in Indonesia to implement fun teaching in classroom settings.
