Sinbad Won April Fools' Day By Releasing Footage From 'Shazaam' - The Movie That Never Existed
April 2, 2017
Although many people claim to clearly recall Sinbad playing a genie in a 90s movie called "Shazaam," those memories appear to be yet another example of the Mandela Effect.
Despite the total lack of evidence that any such film starring Sinbad was ever made — no extant footage, no still shots documenting its creation, no news articles or movie reviews mentioning it, it has no entry in the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), and Sinbad himself has stated that he never played a genie in a movie called Shazaam — many people still they remember seeing the movie.
The common theory is that people are confusing the nonexistent Shazaam with the real film Kazaam, starring Shaquille O'Neal as a genie.
So, on April Fools' Day, Sinbad released "lost footage" from the (fake) film.
"It was my first time directing and the studio wasn't happy with the project," Sinbad said in a statement after College Humor unearthed an alleged Shazaam VHS from a shuttered Blockbuster. "It was pulled from theatrical release. I would prefer if we all just pretended this never happened."
