It’s a common phrase which is part of our everyday vocabulary now, but social media users have been shocked to discover that the term “bucket list” is actually way younger than they thought.
While it feels like it’s been around much, much longer, it’s been revealed that the phrase actually comes from the movie of the same name, which was released back in 2007.
Which, incredibly, means it's only 15 years old.
James Rawson, social media producer for QI, brought the development to the attention of Twitter recently, and people can’t believe it.
He posted a screenshot from the Quartz Daily Brief, which reads: “The 2007 movie Bucket List invented the term. If you clearly remember it existing prior to that, you’re not alone - but it’s just an example of the Mandela effect.”
The Mandela effect, of course, being a situation in which a number of people believe something took place, when it didn’t.
