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.
Three Little Pigs
In the story of the Three Little Pigs, how do you remember the wolf’s line going? We remember it as “I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down!“. This is not the line anymore. The line from the well known children’s story is “I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”. This is another example of how the Mandela Effect has caused a change in our reality. When you blow or knock something down, in this case a house, you don’t blow it in! How do you remember it?
Kit-Kat / KitKat
Didn’t the KitKat logo used to have a hyphen between “Kit” and “Kat”? Well, if you remember it that way, you’re a victim of the Mandela Effect because there is no hyphen (-) in the company name or logo, and apparently there never has been.
Dolly & Jaws (Moonraker)
If you’ve seen the 1979 James Bond movie Moonraker with Roger Moore (Bond) and Richard Kiel (Jaws), you may remember the strange love affair between Jaws and Dolly, but didn’t Dolly used to have braces in the movie? Almost a replica of Jaws’ signature metal teeth?
Well, if you watch the movie now, there is now trace of the character of Dolly ever having braces, despite many descriptions from years ago mentioning and describing her characters as having them.
Sketchers / Skechers
Didn’t the shoe store everyone knows used to be called “Sketchers” with a “t” in the name? Go and do a Google search for the shop now, or better yet, if you have one close by, go and visit the store.
There is no “t” in the name and the store is called “Skechers“. Not only does it look wrong, it’s spelled wrong.
JCPenney / JCPenny
Many remember the famous American home store JCPenney to be spelled slightly different, more specifically without the extra “e” at the end of the name. A large number of people remember the company being called “JCPenny” as apposed to “JCPenney”. How do you remember the famous store? Do you think it’s just another example of the Mandela Effect or a simple mis-memory? Let us know in the comments below.
