For those of you who don’t know, the Mandela Effect is an unusual phenomenon where a large group of people remember something differently than how it occurred in reality. Conspiracy theorists believe this is proof of an alternate universe, while doctors use it as an illustration of how imperfect memory can be sometimes.

Here are the top 10 Mandela effects that will have you freaked out!

10: “…of the world”

The iconic song We Are The Champions by Queen, doesn’t actually end with the phrase “..of the world” like most people would assume it does. The song simply just ends with “no time for losers, ‘cause we are the champions.”

9: Pikachu’s tail

Not everyone knows how Pokémon works, but they at least know who Pikachu is. You may remember the black detail on Pikachu’s tail, but in reality, his tail is solid yellow with no black mark at all.

8: Smokey THE Bear

Many people often think Smokey The Bear is the full name of the beloved national parks character but it really just Smokey Bear.

7: Kit-Kat

The spelling of “Kit-Kat” may look right to you, but the real chocolate bar does not have a hyphen in the name; it is actually just spelled “KitKat.”

6: JC-What?

Some people recall “JCPenney” as being “JCPenny” without the extra “e”. But it has been confirmed that’s how it is actually spelled.

5: White-Out

I had to check this one multiple times. But the product that most of us use when we want to get rid of permanent mistakes is actually called “Wite-Out.”

4: Forrest Gump

The famous quote that everyone knows and loves from Forrest Gump is “Life is like a box of chocolates…” but what Tom Hanks actually said was, “Life was like a box of chocolates..” trippy right?

3: The Berenstein Bears

Everyone remembers the lovable classic bear family who lived in a tree. Some people remember the book and cartoon series as The Berenstein Bears, but in reality, they are the Berenstain Bears.

2: No tail?

The PBS show Curious George featured the silliest monkey on the block. But most people recall George having a tail, but he never did.

1: Mirror Mirror

In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs the Evil Queen looks in her mirror and actually says “Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all” not “Mirror mirror” like most people like to quote.

These are just a few of the countless Mandala Effects that are found within our culture today. Which Mandela Effect messed with your mind the most? Comment down below!
