        10. Kazaam, not Shazam

        The most startling example of the
        Mandela Effect?  The widespread belief
        that an entire feature film exists titled
        Shazam (or Shazaam) starring actor and
        comedian Sinbad as a genie. What people
        are recollecting is probably Kazaam, a
        1996 comedy starring NBA great
        Shaquille O’Neal as a wish-granting
        mystical figure. Part of the confusion

        stems from the fact that Sinbad appeared
        in several children’s films in the 1990s.
        One of them, First Kid, reportedly had a
        preview for Kazaam on the VHS release,
        which could have strengthened the
        tendency to reconstruct the actor as
        starring in it rather than O’Neal. This one
        is so convincing even Brewer himself
