Don't Worry, That Creepy Theory About Sandy Being Dead In 'Grease' Is Wrong
“TELL ME MORE TELL ME MORE!” “Sandy is still alive.” “TELL ME MORE TELL ME MORE!” “That's it. She never died.” “SHOOO BOP! SHOOO BOP! SHOOO BOP! YEAHHHH!” “Please get out of my living room.”
For the past week, the internet has worked itself up into a fit over this odd fan theory about "Grease," which claims Sandy was actually dead the entire time.
The theory started circulating the internet after a Reddit thread claimed,
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 with Danny, where they shared a magical year of high school together. The vision 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.
On that same thread, people started posting their own theories about what really happened to Sandy. Another Redditor said she actually killed herself at the end of the movie, posting the following logic:
The last line of 'Look at me I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)' is 'Goodbye to Sandra Dee' Everything that happens in the last scene is just a little TOO perfect. Danny and Sandy are back together despite everything, Rizzo SUDDENLY isn't pregnant AND Kenickie suddenly decides that he actually loves her, the geeky kid gets onto the sports team, EVERYTHING is suddenly ok, just the way that sweet, innocent Sandy would have wanted it to be. And in the last shot of the movie, she flies up to heaven with her dream boyfriend in her magic flying car.
Could it be?!?! Could Sandy really be dead?!?! WAS THE WHOLE MOVIE IN TRAVOLTA'S HEAD?!?!
As it turns out, no. No to all of those things.
Sorry all of you “Grease” truthers out there. As it turns out, the movie is less smoke and mirrors than you'd think, according to the author of the original book and lyrics, Jim Jacobs.
Jacobs, who wrote the project with Warren Casey, tells TMZ the theories are 100000 percent false. He went on to elaborate that although the original book and movie definitely have their differences, Sandy being dead is not one of them.
"TELL ME MORE TELL ME MORE!" "Dude! Get out of my effing apartment! SERIOUSLY! EVERYONE GET OUT!"
