We all know Grease. We all love Grease. What could be better than a happy movie-musical about two people falling in love ending up together?
Well what if I told you Sandy from Grease actually DIES at the beginning of the movie?
That's what's being sent around the Internet right now. A fan theory has resurfaced explaining how it's entirely possible that Grease is about Sandy's dream she has while in a coma from drowning.
"During the song 'Summer Nights,' Danny and Sandy recount how they first met and started a summer fling. The line, 'I saved her life, she nearly drowned,' suggests that Sandy actually did drown and the whole movie is an elaborate musical fantasy due to the lack of oxygen getting to her brain. 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 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. Which would explain the movie's oddly surreal ending, which sees the couple fly off into the sky in a convertible."
WOW OKAY WELL THAT'S DIFFERENT!
The Internet has lost its collective mind.
If the Internet could stop ruining my favorite movie of all time, that would be great. https://t.co/3Ji7TO5Cbe— alex.jpg (@amdeeeeeee) September 8, 2016
Even celebrities are freaking out.
Hold on, this new #Grease theory blew my mind. Sandy died when she drowned at the beach, and the car is taking them to heaven at the end???— Sarah Michelle (@SarahMGellar) September 7, 2016
The theory definitely holds some clout. It would make the whole "flying off in a car" thing a little more understandable.
But because this is the internet, there are of course people who are proposing theories that make the whole Sandy-being-dead thing seem down right sensible.
