Have you heard the fan theory suggesting Grease tells the coma dream of Sandy, who dies at the end of the movie in the strange scene at the end where the car levitates and rises toward the heavens?

It seems to have first taken root on Reddit before getting a major social media boost when actress Sarah Michelle Gellar posted about it on Facebook, writing:

Wait this has blown my mind- has anyone heard this theory about the movie #Grease At the end of the movie, Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson fly off in a red convertible as they wave goodbye to their friends on the solid ground below, leading to the conclusion that the flying car was the final result of Sandy’s fantasy. (As in she is dead) 

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. The flying red convertible also suggests that Sandy is happily being whisked away to heaven at the end of the movie. Wait what?!?!

Jim Jacobs, who wrote the original book and musical with Warren Casey, tells TMZ that the theory has no merit and that whoever made it up “must have been on acid.”

So Sandy lives on after all. Still an interesting way to view the movie and something this theory will be hard to kill, even with the creator denouncing it.
