If the Sandleverse is real and we should all be afraid, very very afraid.
For the 20 years that Adam Sandler has hit our screens with his comedic movies, he has perceptibly amassed a legion of adoring fans and haters, perhaps, in equal measures. Depending on which side of the divide you are ready to argue for or against, a revelation has come out about Sandler’s movies that could only give the ‘birth of Illuminati claims’ a run for its position in the top drawer of conspiracy theories.
In this clip titled, The Sandlerverse, YouTuber, Shawn Kohne, who did appear in the Jim Carrey Falling and the terrific Game of Thrones/Princess Bride mashup, has come up with claims that by hook or by crook show that virtually all Sandler’s comedies and movies are intricately or disturbingly connected to each other through repeated plots, characters, jokes and phrases.
Kohne is now categorized as the man behind The Sandlerverse madness or the hero behind the eye-popping Sandlerverse theory (depending on your side of the divide). He appears sleep-deprived and going insane in his sensible quest to discover and show that the extent of connections in Sandler’s movies are far-much bigger than anybody ever imagined.
The heavily bearded and wide-eyed Kohne begins unraveling his Sandlerverse theory when he notes that a character in 50 First Dates (starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore) cites a company called Callahan Autos from Sandusky, Ohio. It is the same company that another character in Sandler’s movie, Tommy Boy, works for. After another keen look at 50 First Dates, Kohne notices that Ten-Second Tom in the movie, who happens to suffer from severe memory impairment, is the same character reprised as 220 Tom in Blended, a film produced a decade later and also happens to star both Sandler and Barrymore.
Kohne goes on to prove that Sandler’s cinematic universe is interlinked in an eerily way. He, for instance, notes that the phrase, “that’s a huge b*tch”, seems to be a recurring gag and appears in The Hot Chick, Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo, The Animal and Deuce Bigalow European Gigolo. As Kohne continues watching every Sandler’s movie, he even notices that this trend also appears on Sandler’s show, Saturday Night Live and his own comedy albums.
At one point, Kohne appears completely insane and raises a petition for others to finish his work because he cannot watch Sandler’s films anymore. Even though it is up to you to choose which side of the divide to believe, do you think Sandler is a genius at the art of retelling the same jokes for two decades or is it all based on lazy writing and lack of creativity?
