A lot of what you experience, in seeing things that aren't there (like a Kong skeleton) is a psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia. \nA notable example is seeing the face of the Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich.

I remember seeing Disney's Aladdin as a kid in the movie theatre. Distinctly, I remember seeing the genie's lamp crumbling at the end. When we got the VHS of it, the scene was completely different; nothing like that happens to it. I thought, maybe, it was an alternate cut of the movie. I believed that for decades. About a year ago, I saw The Duck Tales movie, where that exact thing happens to that genie's lamp. Turns out I combined the two \

This is a Doosy. There is an Arnold Schwarzenegger that has a scene in it that people say they don't know it, but it sound familiar and no one can remember the name of it. The scene is.. Arnold save this guy that is in a cage, but the cage is surrounded by creatures that will trap you in their arms and suck you dry to the bone. Arnold just walks right past them and lets the guy out of the cage. When the guy gets out of the cage he runs and he ends up running into a creature and gets sucked dry to the bone. I have been told it is Conan or Red Sonya. I have watched all 23 movies many times and never have found this scene. Please help.\n\nAndrew

Fruit Loops used to be spelled Froot Loops with all four O's being different colored cereal. Good luck finding that box on Google images.

I remember seeing my father as a kid but he's nowhere to be found now... Must be the Mandela Effect.

I really don't get the Mandela example. It doesn't even make sense if you think about it. He was most famous for becoming president AFTER getting out of prison.

There are two characters named Captain Marvel, one owned by DC and one by Marvel. DC's Character is much older and the mentioned TV show was based on him. They relatively recently changed the name of the character to Shazam though to prevent confusion with Marvel Comic.

Most of these false memories seem to be based around simple mistakes. Mostly things falling outside of the norm being mistaken for things that fall within the norm.\nFor example Looney Tunes being misremembered as Looney Toons makes sense because toons is more often associated with cartoons than tunes is.\nMemories aren't actually stored in their entirety within the brain. We remember bits and pieces that we use to recreate the memory later and we fill in the bits that are missing with whatever makes the most logical sense. Well what happens if one of those bits and pieces your brain recreates later as opposed to remembering outright isn't the most logical thing you'd expect it to be?

Anyone remember the anime-esque cartoon Code Lyoko? I distinctly remember them apparently adding lyrics to the theme song later in the show, with it starting out just an instrumental. As far as I can tell, it always had lyrics. Weird.

I love arguing with the nutjobs who think the Mandela Effect is caused by alternate realities or CERN ripping holes in reality. They're so full of themselves and so utterly convinced that they can't possibly be wrong that it's truly hilarious to see how much they twist things around to be right. It's like, \

This may not be completely a Mandela effect, but I hear people tons of times over the years saying that Mortal Kombat theme from the movie in the 90s was the actual theme from the original games.\n \n\nMORTALLL KOMMMMBATT!!!!!

For me, one of the biggest is Dolly Braces in Moonraker, the Bond film from '79. I made a video on that topic a couple of month ago. Weird phenomenon!
Eric Schell
This is why I never took history class of any kind serious. How am I supposed to take the word of what someone is telling me, if we sometimes can't remember how an event went down two months ago, let alone hundreds of years ago with information passed on over and over again, and how many of these stories are made up but we just don't know.

The Mandela Effect is fine as a phenomenon, once people realise that it is faulty memory at play and not a dimensional cross-over. The internet has driven a lot of people crazy with things like this and there are way too many who now believe that this is part of a conspiracy involving CERN. It is really scary how easily people can be convinced to believe crazy ideas.

This was great, you should do one on video games.

These arent bad memories. These are thing that have actually happened. You remembered these things correctly but the forces of CERN have messed with Antimatter have changed the fabric of time and it seems as if things have gotten swapped between 2 dimensions

The mandela effect is a fun thing to think about, but it's not a legitimate effect recognized by science. I think it has to do more with statistics when a group of remember it in the right way and others just add little details and context to make it easier to comprehend (Luke, I am your Father), it is really easy to implant memories in people's mind if you say it with enough conviction. no one is around debunking trivial details about pop culture, so that's why accept them as we are told.

One very common example I've seen is a false moment from Return of the Jedi: when the Ewok with the hang glider crashes to the ground, many (myself included) distinctly remember that, immediately after crashing, he is also crushed flat by an AT-ST walker- but in fact he does not! \n\nHowever, this one has a pretty easy explanation: a walker DOES appear directly above him, and for a brief moment it looks like its foot COULD come crashing straight down onto his head, but instead it touches down on the ground behind him. Most likely our childhood selves saw the foot about to drop, briefly feared that we were about to see him squished, and later remembered the fear more easily than the real happening.

When I was younger I watched my Dad play the start of RE4, and I distinctly remember the game opening up with Leon going into a large, two story house at night time during autumn. Inside, the player is attacked by that enemy with the chainsaw and the sack over their head, triggering a QTE in which the player jumps onto the chainsaw, then out the window, breaking the glass.\n\nFast forward to when I finally played the game myself earlier this year, and that scene is instead in the village, with one of the random locals on the ground floor instead. There was even the same dialogue of trying to talk to the villager before being attacked, except instead of a QTE, it went straight into regular gameplay.

I have a very distinct false memory of the Xbox/Ps2 game of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. I remember after fighting the ring wraiths on weathertop I kept dying because I'd been poisoned from bat bites and had no healing items, so I had to give up the game. I replayed the game many years later only to find that there are no bats in the game, or poison for that matter. Shit's crazy.

Rich Uncle Pennybags didn't have a monocle. That's the Planter's Peanut. I seem to remember a Curious George Cover in which George is hanging upside down, taking the Man in the Yellow Hat's hat. The image in my mind sees George from the waist up, which can easily cause a person to think he's hanging by his tail the way so many mischievous cartoon primates, especially Hannah-Barbera characters (because of the similar art style) did around the time George was most popular.

If the Mandela effect is real, I'd really like to go to a universe where I'm not a complete loser.\n\nAlso, The problem with memories is that every time you remember something, you're remembering the last time you remembered it. It's like your brain is playing a game of telephone by itself.

Mandela Effect: Because I can't be wrong about this many things... so the whole universe is wrong.
PictureProductStudio
It feels like a lot of people in the comments are trying to say that Mandela effect is just an excuse are a) misunderstanding/misinterpreting the concept of the effect and are saying that it does not exist as a thing (while it factually does as some sort of brain function misfire, even if it doesn't as parallel universe leftover) and b) unnecessary rude calling other people idiots, while what we've dealing with is a problem nearly any individual experienced in his/her life. If person says hat she/he had experienced Mandela effect it more often then not means that the person is aware that there is something wrong with their memories about specific thing, so saying that the effect itself is an excuse is somewhat anti-logical.
PrussianKamikaze
This is kinda related, but I get deja vu A LOT. Like, I would dream about say something specific happening while driving toward Reading, or something like that. Then, the same exact thing would happen months later in real life. It's like I predicted it or something. It freaks me out sometimes. Anybody else like this?

For the last 37 years I swear I was told multiple times I was a c-section baby. I've had this conversation quite a few times growing up: there were complications, the chord was around my neck 3 times, etc. I was actually blue. Anyway, i was told recently that I was a regular birth, just with the aforementioned complications. How can I remember being told so many times I was a c-section? It drives me nuts!

Sam Wetherington
When I was really young I remember catching the climax scene from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective on TV. I thought It was this horrifying scene where Ace viciously strips and beats a woman, and when the police were asking if everything was okay, Ace would put his hands on his hips, grin and say that everything was fine. All the while the woman was crying and saying that he was taking advantage of her. Then his grin would be replaced with a scowl and then he preceded to beat her again.\n\nMany years later I caught the scene again and I identified all of the aspects, (Jim Carry, a woman/man getting stripped, the warehouse, and the armed police.) I realized that I remembered the scene wrong. Its kind of funny to me, the scene I remember kind of looked like something from Cape Fear from Martin Scorcese. You remember that scene where Max Cady beats that woman before he rapes her? It was like that. But the actual scene was tonally opposite. Its one of the weirdest things I have ever experienced.

You mention memory screwing with memory. Well, it's a known fact that whenever we recall a memory we're basically rewriting the original memory and that's one way in which memory gets garbled over time and you misremember things and reasons why eyewitness testimony is starting to be considered unreliable at best.
Tinkerer
Well one partial explanation for the Joker and the King Kong ones here for people our age is that our TVs weren't nearly as good back in the day so our brains filled in a lot of the missing information. That dollar bill would've been pretty hazy so if you were expecting to see Jokers face there you would've. And that rock formation did look pretty damn skull like.
Tom Majestic
I always knew it was Looney Tunes, thanks to my Dad. He is one big fan of the animated shorts and loved to point out those things. Warner Bros. Looney Tunes was to sort of parody/rival Disney's Silly Symphonies. WB also had Merrie Melodies too. All music related to the titles. If I remember right MM had a more Disney feel to it and LT was straight up, well, Looney.

The Mandela effect is an example of why eyewitness testimony should not be taken as evidence in a court of law. People are not very good at remembering things accurately.

There is a name for the occurance. Whatever the human brain cannot remember, it re-creates. Thats how u can whisper something in one person's ear, and ten people later, the message is lost entirely. Gaps in memory are filled with recreations.
dacypher22
There was an experiment done a few years back where people's brains were being scanned very in-depth while they were looking at a few different images. A computer program tried to not only tell what image they were looking at, but recreate the image based on brain activity. One that really struck me was an image of a bird flying through the air. However, the background would be different depending on who they were scanning (blue sky, clouds, a forest), and the bird was even in a different perspective for one of the subjects. Just shows that even as we are watching something, our brain is already filling in unimportant details, sometimes completely synthesizing them.

Speaking about Batman: I do remember that scene when a gotham citizen unfolded a dollar bill a saw the Joker face on it and ever since I also watch it when its on TV hopping to see that scene. Also, I remember when Gordon discovers what its laughing from the dead Joker it a little bag, I remember gordon opens the bag and find out a little red thing makin the laugh sound. Please tell me there is others out there that also remember this

My own personal Mandela effect was Jurassic Park. When I saw it in the theaters and it got to the end and the Trex gets the raptors, I remember seeing the rex actually crash through the building at the end before facing the raptors. When I got the vhs I watched it again and there was no such scene. The rex just shows up behind them. I never understood it and others have claimed they saw the same thing.

monopoly guy with the monacle is actually the pringles logo and thats why everyone thinks that ... mind blown

FYI, both Marvel AND DC have characters named Captain Marvel that are getting movies in 2019. DC later changed their character's comic to being called Shazam to avoid confusion.

A lot of these seem to be forgetting specifics about characters and logos and using general assumptions instead.\n\nWe assume fruit is spelled with a u in all cases and not with an o in froot loops. We assume all monkeys have tails and we know Curious George is a monkey so we think he must have a tail. We assume rich and snobby people have monocles, so the monopoly man should. Cartoons is spelled with an o and Loony Tunes is a cartoon so we assume it is as well. You get the point.\n\nThese assumptions are important because your brain can only remember so much, and general information will have you be right 99% of the time, but that 1% is where this effect comes in.
