Mandela Effect Update

It’s been a hot minute since I talked about this. It’s pretty funny that I haven’t talked about this in awhile because I’m obsessed with these things.

Basically for those who don’t know, the Mandela Effect is a theory that there is an alternate universe where everything is the same but there’s little pieces missing. Kind of like a glitch in a computer. Most of us, complete strangers, can remember something very vividly and all the details but then look back and it’s wrong. That’s called The Mandela Effect. The reason it’s called the Mandela Effect is because there was a man named Nelson Mandela. Most people remember him dying in prison in 2009. But he died in 2013…. creepy right? It’s so fascinating.

I made a post about this before so if you’re new, it’ll be linked Here

Here’s some popular examples of the Mandela Effect that I found.

The Monopoly man doesn’t have a monocle. Most people remember the Monopoly man having a monocle, but he doesn’t. I always thought he did and when I found out he didn’t I was so confused. I’m still confused. I think some people might get him confused with the Peanut dude.

Mister Rodgers’ theme song is different in the beginning. It’s not “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.” It’s actually, “It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood.” Slight difference. Just one word so how did we all miss that?

Kit Kat does NOT have a dash in the name. Growing up I would always see the dash in the name, on the wrapper. It’s not there anymore. What the ….?


The Queen in Snow White never said “Mirror mirror on the wall”. It’s actually “Magic  mirror on the wall”. I spent my whole childhood saying the WRONG THING.

It’s Looney Toons? Nope! It’s been Looney Tunes. But do you know what? There’s no tunes in it. So why tunes instead of toons. I don’t know.

Febreze… or however you spell it. We’ve all seen the commercials for this ever so popular air freshener. Well, you’ve been spelling it wrong your whole life. I always thought it had two E’s before the Z. No, just one. It’s Febreze.


That’s enough for now. I’m questioning my entire life existence and my brain hurts. I need to go take a nap. 💙

Mandela Effect

I’ve never been a person to believe in things out of this universe, but this really opened up my eyes. One day Carly and I were sitting at my house and she brought up the Mandela Effect. Being honest with her I told her I had no idea what the hell she was talking about, I thought she had gone crazy again. She started to explain it to me though and it started making a lot of sense to me. We started watching a bunch of Shane Dawson videos (he’s my idol I aspire to be like him) and I really started to think about it. I fell down a huge hole of Shane and ended up questioning my entire life existence.

So basically the Mandela Effect is when a large group of people remember something happening, but when they go back and look it didn’t really happen. Some people have a theory of a parallel universe where somebody has traveled back in time and changed something so minuscule so that nobody noticed. The name of this theory is named after Nelson Mandela, who was thought to have died in prison in the 80’s, yet his actual death was on December 5th 2013. People swear they can remember him dying in prison… but he didn’t. Creepy right? Well, somebody might just think it was a coincidence or big misunderstanding… but then people started noticing other little differences. Here are some of the most famous Mandela Effects.

  1. Berenstain Bears. A lot of people remember seeing it as “Berenstein Bears” but the actually spelling of it is “Berenstain Bears”.
  2. Star Wars. Everybody remembers the saying “Luke, I am your father.” but if you look back the saying is “I am your father”. 
  3. Sex and the City. I even distinctly remember is being called “Sex in the City, but I’m already crazy so I don’t know.
  4. Oscar Mayer: This one makes me so mad I’ve always known it as “Oscar Meyer.” 
  5. Curious George: I don’t remember this one but people used to see Curious George having a tail. He doesn’t have a tail.

Those are just some of the most popular Mandela Effects today. There are hundreds out there and more are being discovered all the time. Do you guys believe in this theory? If so, let me know in the comments below! If you enjoyed this and want me to make another post about this let me know!
