Are These Mandela Effects Real Or Utter BS?

Is it the Berenstein Bears or the Berenstain Bears?? Let's settle the debate once and for all.

Posted on

If you haven't heard, the Mandela Effect is a popular conspiracy theory that has taken the Internet by storm.

Shane Dawson / Via Youtube.com

From popular Youtubers such as Shane Dawson to the popular subreddit r/MandelaEffect, it all started with the death of Nelson Mandela back in 2013. Many people came up and said they clearly remembered Nelson Mandela dying back in 1991.

In fact, there's published works that claim that Mandela passed away on July 23rd, 1991.

The theory is that, somehow, our universe switched into a parallel universe, leading to changes in very fine, minute details. Ever since the Mandela effect gained popularity, hundreds of new ones have popped up all over the internet.

Here are just a few of the most popular ones.
