The Mandela Effect is an unexplained phenomenon that is taking the world by storm and the alternate memories affect nearly everyone. For some, it’s a simple case of “our memory isn’t as good as we thought”, but for others, it’s solid proof we are experiencing a parallel universe’s timeline cross into our reality and it is disrupting our history. If you’re only just hearing of the Mandela effect, we would suggest reading our Mandela Effect Overview and Theories before diving into the list of Mandela Effect examples.
QUEEN – We are the champions… OF THE WORLD!
Ever heard the famous Queen song “We are the champions”? Don’t you remember the line being “We are the champions… Of the world“? So do we. Here is the original version of the song on Youtube, fast forward to around 2:50 and listen to the lyrics. There is no trace of the “of the world” lyrics at the end of the song anymore. You literally won’t believe this one until you hear it. After a fan of AHistoryOfMystery contacted us about this alternate memory we thought it was a joke. Until we listened to the end of the song to realize the “of the world” line has never been there (apparently). Mind blown? We’ve only just begun with these five Mandela Effect examples…
Many people have seen the Hollywood blockbuster Knocked Up with Seth Rogen. But, when do you remember it? It’s official release date was 2007. However, two of our fans, and one of our team, distinctively remember it being released in 2005, around the same time as hurricane Katrina. Is this another example of the Mandela Effect or are multiple people having the same incorrect alternate memories? When do you remember Knocked Up being released? If it was prior to 2007, let us know in the comments below.
The Monopoly Man
We’ve all played the super-famous Monopoly board game, remember the one with the properties and the man in a nice black and white tux who always squints his eye to hold his monocle (glass eye lens) in place? If none of that sentence seems wrong to you, welcome to the Mandela Effect and your next alternate memory.
Just have a look at the Monopoly man now. He doesn’t have his signature monocle, and apparently never did.
Do you remember Billy Graham’s death? A couple of our fans recalled his son giving an eulogy on TV for his father. According to this current reality/timeline, Billy Graham is alive and well at the time of this article. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.
The American DIY store is known by many as “Home Depot”, but this appears to be another alternate memory caused by the Mandela Effect. The name is actually “The Home Depot” and always has been (apparently). Many people remember the popular home improvement store without “The” in the title, but no matter how hard we search, there is not a single authentic logo or sign of “Home Depot” with “The” in the title. Do you remember it differently, do you think the word “The” has been added in the title recently due to a parallel universes timeline cross or another unexplained reason? Let us know in the comments below.
