Fan Theories Give ‘Grease’ a ‘Sixth Sense’ Twist

When you’re equal parts fragile and paranoid, tin foil hat theories are both poison and lifeblood. But the most shocking theory I’ve read as of late stems from the 1978 musical classic Grease. Conceived by Redditor atomicbolt, we now have a meme that doesn’t just placate depression, but rather prompts many more traumatic sleepless nights. You know the kind where you realize all your perceptions are socialized to make you feel more comfortable with the fact that you’re forced to be alive.

Because memes are best displayed graphically and not described to you by some girl stoned in a coffee shop, let’s return to the primary source.

Via The Wrap:

“At the end of ‘Grease,’ Sandy and Danny get into a red convertible and drive away from the fair. The car promptly defies the laws of gravity and flies into the sky. How did the car fly? At the start of the film, we see Danny and Sandy meeting on the beach. Later, Danny explains through song that they first met when Danny ‘saved her life – she nearly drowned,’” the fan theory explains.

“Sandy actually did drown on the beach that day. As she drowned, her brain deprived of oxygen, she had a vivid coma fantasy involving her summer fling Danny, where they shared a magical year of high school together,” the theory continues. “The visions get increasingly outlandish as time passes, until finally, as Danny desperately tries to resuscitate her on the beach, she sees herself flying into Heaven in her dying moments. The entire movie was a drowning woman’s coma fantasy.”

There you have it. Sandy was dead the whole time.
