The 22 Weirdest Coincidences In Pop Culture History

We're making memes smarter. So can you. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get started.

Mind-blowing coincidences are par for the course in movies and shows. But when the movie itself somehow manages to inadvertently mimic something going on in the real world, it's just plain creepy. But weirdly, it happens all the time. Somehow our pop culture manages to be eerily prescient about the real world.

We asked our readers to collect the most ridiculously mind-blowing examples they could find. Then we paid them prize money. Which wasn't a coincidence.
