We are all slipping into a parallel universe – Top 15 Examples of The Mandela Effect in 2017

What is the Mandela Effect? It’s an unexplained phenomenon that you’ve probably experienced over the last few years without realizing. Have you ever shared a vivid memory of something with many people, only to realize that event never happened? How is it that Millions of people from all over the world with no relation to each other have the exact same collective misremembering of the same event? These false memories have some people questioning their sanity, but the answer is more likely that we are now living in a parallel universe.

The name of the theory originates from many people being certain they remember Nelson Mandela dying while he was still in prison back in the 1980s. Contrary to what so many thought, Mandela’s actual death was on December 5, 2013, despite people claiming to remember seeing his funeral on TV. Since then, there have been many different misrememberings which has scientists wondering what exactly is going on.

There are many different theories out there as to why the Mandela Effect exists. Most recently, many theoretical physicists believe that CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) may have accidentally created an inter-dimensional paradox when they discovered the Higgs Boson “God particle” by smashing Adams together at nearly the speed of light with the The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Some also believe that it is a result of time travel. Perhaps we all once lived in a universe where things were slightly different and we still remember it that original way but are now merged with an alternate dimension.

No matter what your theory, this list will make you question reality and send shivers down your spine.

1. “Mirror Mirror On the Wall” is now “Magic Mirror On the Wall”

This quote from Snow White is the most famous of the movie. Right? What if I told you we were all remembering it wrong? That’s right, it isn’t “mirror mirror on the wall.” In the movie, they say “magic mirror on the wall.” I have never met a person who remembers it this way. It gets even worse.. remember the second part of that quote being “Who is the fairest OF THEM all?” Wong again! In this timeline it’s apparently it’s “Who is the fairest ONE OF all?” Don’t believe it? Check for yourself.


1. “Oscar Meyer” is now spelled “Oscar Mayer”


“My bologna has a first name. It’s O-S-C-A-R. My bologna has a second name it’s M-E-Y-E-R.” You remember that song from the Oscar Meyer commercials right? The commercial even spelled out the last name in the song. But it isn’t “Oscar Meyer,” it is “Oscar Mayer.” The way that we all pronounce the company’s name is “Meyer” yet now it’s “Mayer” and makes no sense.


1. The Monopoly Man’s missing eyepiece…

Yes, that’s right. The Monopoly man is monocle-less, and supposedly always has been. Even thought you distinctly remember him having one.


3. “Luke, I am your father”

“Luke, I am your father” is one of the most iconic phrases in film history, Yet, now he says  “No, I am your father.” Even the actor James Earl Jones himself remembers the line as “Luke, I am your father” and it doesn’t stop there … 3-CPO isn’t all gold! Thats right, he has a silver leg.


4. “Chic-Fil-A” is now “Chick-Fil-A”

Do you remember this fast-food chicken restaurant being known as Chic-fil-A without the “K”? Wrong! The company has supposedly always been Chick-fil-A. So why do we all remember it spelled without the K?

5. Life isn’t like a box of chocolates anymore

In the movie Forrest Gump, we all remeber Forrest says, “My momma always said, life is like a box of chocolates.” That is a famous line that everyone who has ever seen the movie would know. Well, go back and watch the movie now, he says “life WAS like a box of chocolates”


5. “Fruit Loops” is now “Froot Loops”


Have you felt confused recently at the grocery store seeing your favorite childhood cereal “Fruit Loops” spelled “Froot Loops” and thinking “I don’t remember the logo looking this way.” Did they change the name? You are not alone and no, they didn’t change the name. In this dimension, it’s always been spelled that way.


5. “Looney Toons” is “Looney Tunes”

The name Looney Toons makes sense because they are looney cartoons. The show is actually called “Looney Tunes” and always has been.


6. “Kit-Kat” is missing it’s dash

Do you remember there being a dash in Kit-Kat? There isn’t one, and there never was…

7. “The Berenstein Bears” are now the “The Berenstain Bears”

We all remember the book series/cartoon about a family of bears being known as The Berenstein Bears. However, if you look now, they’re actually called The Berenstain Bears. Even though you remember it being spelled with an “e,” one Redditor even found an old VHS tape of the cartoon, and the label shows “Berenstein.”

Remember seeing him use his tail to swing from the trees? If you look up pictures of Curious George right now, you’ll see that he doesn’t have a tail, meaning either your memory made the whole thing up or we’ve drifted into a parallel universe.

8. Curious George never had a tail.


Remember seeing him use his tail to swing from the trees? If you look up pictures of Curious George right now, you’ll see that he doesn’t have a tail, meaning either your memory made the whole thing up or we’ve drifted into a parallel universe.


9. The tip of Pikachu’s tail isn’t black

Remember there being a black mark on Pikachu’s tail? Look at Pikachu now, you’ll see nothing there. How so many people can remember an aspect of this character’s appearance that doesn’t actually exist?


10. Mister Rogers’ theme song opening line is now different

During the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood intro, he’d sing the line, “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.” now he says “It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,” which just doesn’t sound right at all. Even the intro music is completely different from how many people remember.


11. Febreeze

Since when is “frebreeze” spelled “febreze”? You know you have asked yourself that at least once in the last few years.


12. “Interview with a Vampire” is “Interview with the Vampire”

If you type in on google “interview with” the suggested ending is “a vampire.” Surprisingly, the movie is actually called “Interview with the Vampire” despite all of us from the 90s remembering it completely different.

13. “Sex in the City” is “Sex and the City”

It’s Sex and the City, but many people insist they remember it being “in the” at some point. Some people have even posted pictures of old memorabilia they have that supports their false memory.


14. Remember a Sinbad genie movie from the ’90s? There isn’t one. Oh, and Jiffy peanut butter doesn’t exist.


BOUNUS – Queen’s song “We are the Champions” has a different ending now…

Remember the final lyrics being “No time for losers, ’cause we are the champions…of the world!” Guess what? There is no “of the world!” The song just ends, and it’s driving people crazy because we remember it differently.

15. Mona Lisa is smiling now

Google it. She has supposedly always had that shit eating grin on face. Even though we all remember her with only a faint (at best) smile.
