This Red Pill is a video on the Poppy YouTube channel. It is the 171st video of the Poppy era. It was uploaded on March 21st, 2017.
The video is most likely a reference to the popular film The Matrix. In the film, Morpheus offers the protagonist Neo a red pill or a blue pill. The red pill would free Neo from the Matrix and allow him to escape into the real world, while the blue pill would lead him to stay in the Matrix. The terms "red pill and blue pill" have since become a popular cultural phenomenon.
Since Poppy takes the red pill in the video, this would be likened to her being freed from her dream world or alternate reality.
