“Grease” may still be the word, but after you hear this story that word may bum you out.
There is a Grease conspiracy theory going around thanks to a ‘Reddit’ thread claiming that Sandy played by Olivia Newton-John was actually dead or dying throughout the 1978 movie.
It all started when a fan of the movie posted his theory that it was all a dream. The fan cited the lyrics to the film’s opening number, “Summer Nights” which he says, says it all in the part where Danny Zuko, (John Travolta) and Sandy first met, “Saved her life, she nearly drowned” he argues that Sandy actually died on the beach that day.
He says as she drowned she had a vivid coma fantasy involving her summer fling with Danny.
He points out evidence saying in the final scene where Sandy and Danny drive away from the school in that red convertible, it flies in to the sky ascending into Heaven.
