Have you ever heard of the Mandela-effect?
No? Well let me take you on a roller coaster acid trip where everything you thought you knew is completely wrong.
The Mandela-effect all started, simply enough when Nelson Mandela more or less began making the rounds on TV shows like Oprah and CNN. People watching the shows were dumbfounded. Why? Because according to them, Nelson Mandela had died in prison in the 1980’s. This wasn’t one or two people either. Entire communities sprang from this, all of whom legitimately had a memory of him dying. How could so many people be wrong? The Mandela-effect was born.
Queen- We are the Champions
Who doesn’t love Queen. Well do you remember the song “We Are The Champions”?
I used to sing that song at the top of my longs. The very end of the song was my favorite part… “We are the champions… of the wooooooorllllddd”
Yeah! Sorry. That never happened.
The song just ends. There is no “of the world” How the hell is this even possible. I’ve sung the song. This isn’t a misheard lyric like how when I thought Elton John was singing "Hold me closer Tony Danza" when it’s really Tiny Dancer, the name of the goddamn song. This here's an entire lyric completely missing that I had for years sung out loud.
The Monopoly Man
Let me tell you something. I think I have played exactly 1 game of Monopoly to completion. What I have done though is setup about half a million games of Monopoly then immediately got bored. It was just never my thing.
Now one thing I can tell you I have seen millions of times is the Monopoly man and his monocle.
You might have seen where this is headed. Uncle Pennybags (which is his real name) never had a monocle. Jesus Christ. Here is what he really looks like.
My god! I feel like my entire life has just been one long fever dream.
Mirror Mirror On the Wall
Growing up with a younger sister who was into Disney movies you kind of grow up to hate and despise Disney movies. Snow White is one of those movies.
As a kid I could have probably sang along to every god forsaken song that was sung in this movie disguised as the devil.
I could also tell you that I and everyone I know has repeated the phrase Mirror mirror on the wall for as long as the movie has existed. So why, suddenly is it…
Magic Mirror on the wall…. What the actual fuck? No. No, no, no, no, and NO!
So what is it? Magic Mirror? Mirror mirror? Well apparently Disney doesn't know either.
Come on! Get your shit together Disney!
Everything I have ever known about Star Wars is wrong!
What's wrong with this picture? I'll give you a minute. Give up? Okay.
Since when is C3PO's leg silver?!!? I have seen episodes 4, 5 and 6 more times than I can count or would admit to and not during any of those viewings was his leg silver. NOT-ONE-TIME! This is my definition of fake news.
How can you see a movie and not pick up on one of the main characters major flaws? Like how has this never been discussed before? We know the entire backstory of a Wookie, yet we have no idea, nor has anyone asked, why C3PO has a silver leg? I call madness!
Want to know what else is wrong with this movie? Well let me tell you.
That's right LUKE! Dear old Dad here. I just want to tell you LUKE, that I, Darth Vader am your Father. Did you hear that LUKE??
Nope. Nothing. Because he actually never said Luke.
There it is. My life is a lie.
Here are some more examples of the Mandela-effect
I always thought it was Sex IN the City. Dunno about you.
Apparently Looney TUNES is correct.
Whaaaaaat?!?! Since when has it been FROOT Loops?
Ummm? Didn't Curious George have a tail?
Do you really want to have your mind blown?
