    That's because the song was written after Diamond and Burt Baccarach were inspired while watching ET. It definitely wasn't in the movie!

    Yeah analog 480i/480p wasn't really that bad. Plus tv and cable broadcasts as well as Vhs releases were full screen pan and scan giving an even closer look at her teeth. Making it even clearer she didn't have braces. Not really sure a second gen dub could even give the illusion of braces on her perfect teeth.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    From what I know dubbing video or any video degradation or interference will often cause 1) loss of contrast range and 2) interlacing issues (because VHS doesn't have frames like film). Totally speculating, but my thinking is this: a less ideal video playback situation can make white teeth look a bit blown out - they can look brighter and hazier in a way that could look slightly glowing. Horizontal interlaced lines across the teeth could either look like something is there or at least look distorted or conceal enough detail to make someone who was expecting braces to think they saw them.

    I think you're probably right. It's likely many people are completely misremembering braces just because that gag makes sense that way, but I don't think video playback could be a impossible secondary cause.

    I remember sitting on the curb with my best buddy in the late 70's playing with our Mego figures and he told me.that he had seen a Green Lantern Mego figure! I was a little doubtful but hopeful. Alas no Green Lantern Mego

    Yeah, Toys and Sports memories seem to be immune to the Mandela effect. If there was/ is a quantum computer changing the past you would think that would change as well but history and media seem to be more subjective.
